UltraBold is a campaign created to inspire the next generation of BIPOC designers to pursue their creative passions. When teens don’t see designers who look like them, it can be hard for them to picture themselves pursuing a design career.

Through a series of animated videos, UltraBold features successful BIPOC creatives and their stories: who they are, how they got there, and what they do. These videos link to the UltraBold website, which features curated resources, articles, and other media created specifically for teenagers and young adults who are interested in exploring what it means to become and be a designer.

UltraBold approaches the creation and development of these resources through the lens of young maybe-designers and equips them with specific and accessible information created with their questions, experiences, and perspectives in mind.
