Innosanto Nagara

Graphic designer Innosanto Nagara is a founding member of Design Action Collective, a worker-owned cooperative design studio in Oakland. Nagara wrote the picture book “A Is For Activist” for his son, eventually self-publishing it after a successful Kickstarter campaign. Nagara worked with Seven Stories Press and produced a Spanish translation with the help of Martha Gonzalez and a Swedish translation from Oppenheim förlag. He published his second book, “Counting on Community” in 2015. Innosanto’s art is featured in the new book, “We Are the Change” (Chronicle Books May 2019).
