Legends are born out of adversity and are the conquers that inspire generations to come. In the fabric of American culture and history there are many “Hidden Figures” like our sisters from Nasa, Katherine Johnson, Mary Jackson and Dorothy Vaughan. These furious and fantastic heroes have destroyed walls of discrimination. Open doors of opportunity and have taught America that God made beauty and brilliance in every hue that paints itself on the world around us. At Project Osmosis, our “Hidden Figure” is Charles Harrison, a mentor, friend, advisor and champion of design inclusion who became the first African American “Industrial Designer” to work at Sears Roebuck in a time when men that shared the hue of his skin weren’t readily accepted or acknowledge in the field. That’s why our Sr. Illustrator and Design Mentor, Alan Davis was so grateful to have worked with a design legend like Mr. Harrison. Alan said, “The most important aspect of this process for me was creating a brand that has the respect and approval of a designer who made it possible for me to do what I love. Getting a chance to work directly with Chuck on perfecting this brand, I learned why he is one of the greatest.”
