About the Work

Bloom Season rewrites the traditional playbook for business success by addressing the needs of diverse entrepreneurs. This inaugural issue focuses on the specific challenges that Black entrepreneurs face; isolation, alienation and mistrust, and was developed by Black writers, photographers, illustrators, film creators, entrepreneurs, and creatives. It's a community centered digital resource that provides guidance on starting, running and growing a business. It also provides perspective on striking the balance between professional and personal life, discussing important topics including mental health, avoiding burnout, working with your family, perfecting the pivot and discovering your third act. Inspired by Afrofuturism, our design concept imagines a future for diverse entrepreneurs that is paved with possibilities and not roadblocks. It's a true representation of the richness, vibrancy and brightness of our audience and their experiences. Using an eclectic color palette, dynamic typography, vibrant illustration and empowering photography we've created a space where entrepreneurs of color feel authentically represented.
