Younousse Seye is a Senegalese mixed media artist and actress born in 1940 in Saint-Louis. Self-taught, Seye is among the first generation of contemporary artists in Senegal. The Age of All Women: The Becoming of Younousse Seye is a short film that honors her career and examines the structural conditions that govern the remembrance of Black women artists.

 

I collaborated with Merve and Lendl to create a visual identity for the film, along with print materials for an accompanying exhibition. Learn more about Younousse Seye here.

Visual Identity

The identity was inspired by Senegalese archival newspaper and magazine articles as well as film posters from the 1960s, when Seye broke onto the scene. The color palette is drawn from colors in Seye's work, which aligns with the colors of the Senegalese flag—red, yellow and green.

 

The primary typeface is a version of ATF's Condensed Title Gothic 11, which I digitized to create the film titles.

Exhibition Takeaway

The portion of the film was exhibited in Spring 2024 in Dakar, Senegal. We designed a printed takeaway to accompany to give viewers more context on Seye and included a QR code where they can stay up-to-date on the full film release and other updates on the project.
