As designers committed to decolonizing our practices, we feel that it is important for us to help amplify Black voices that have historically been underrepresented within our discipline. We are using this site as a public platform in support of Black Lives Matter within our communities and beyond. We ask that you take some time alongside looking at our work, to explore these collected resources.

What's The Mix Up? includes two main projects. The first project is called Paper Self and the second project is a collection of zines.
The Paper Self project is reminiscent of paper dolls, a popular children's toy where you dress a figure. The kit features items that reflect many different countries and cultures ranging from food, hobbies, clothing and more.
The magnetic pieces allow for the user to put together any images without limitation to create a self-portrait. For people who identify as mixed race, this allows them to depict all sides of their racial and cultural identities without having to choose one or another.
The zine collection features the interviews conducted with individuals who identify as mixed race. These interviews focus on each person's own experiences, both positive and negative as well as their thoughts on self-identity, relationships and advice to others.
To reflect the fun and celebratory tone of the project, the hand-stitched zines feature illustrations of the content. Each zine includes memorable and impactful quotes as well as the Paper Self that the interviewee created.
