Uniting America Web conference
For a design branding class at Western Washington University, I was tasked with creating the complete branding and graphic identity system of an event. I chose to create a fictional web conference, based on a podcast I found intriguing by the Psychology Podcast with Bret Weinstein, entitled "Uniting America."
The Psychology Institute (TPI) is a nonprofit that aims to educate the public on the mind, brain, behavior, and creativity. They seek to give a greater understanding of the self, others, and the world we live in. Hostings its first-ever Uniting America Web Conference, TPI’s Scott Barry Kaufman will interview Bret Weinstein, biologist, and evolutionary theorist. Earning his Ph.D. at the University of Michigan and teaching at Evergreen State College for 14 years, Weinstein has spent the last 20 years advancing the field of evolutionary biology. In this completely virtual live web forum, Weinstein will share more of his story involving getting protested out of Evergreen State College by students, the role of fear in collective protests, sources of racial tensions in the US, deindividuation on the left, and a lack of interracial compassion on the right, the fight to return policymaking to average America, the meaning of “wokeness”: then and now, and assessing IQ as a measure of intelligence.
