Who was James Baldwin?
Words that come to mind when I think of James Baldwin: clear (because of his effective and persuasive speech), classic (because of his clean style and respectfulness), and colorless (because he believed in love and brotherhood between humanity).
I wanted to convey a feel that fit him best. To do that and keep the design classy and high contrast, I used black text and a white background—so the words and portraits of James speak with no distraction.
