Journal Entry #7

Our design environment takes inspiration from hip-hop because it is now perceived as an accepted culture in society. Design takes influence from the movement in breaking, to graffiti art to the beats and lyrics in the music. I think hip hop's role in design is to expose the culture and to bring awareness to its positive impact and message.

I would create illustrations and comics influenced by hip-hop because it is an easy, quick and visual way to grab people's attention. Comics are a fun way to illustrate storytelling through hip-hop narratives and themes. It would be especially interesting to fuse hip-hop with another culture, much like the anime Samurai Champloo fuses samurai and Japanese culture with hip-hop. For example, I could make zines of cats or old people in hip hop culture.
