Co—Conspirator Press
Supporter


Pollinators spread pollen from one flower to another, fertilizing the plant & continuing its life cycle to the next generation. Once a flower is pollinated, it produces fruit & seeds, which continue the life cycle and support life in the ecosystem.

At this level you are supporting Co––Conspirator Press, our in-house publishing imprint for artists, writers, designers, printers, social justice workers, and editors from historically underrepresented communities who use their voice to address intersectional feminist issues and challenge cis-hetero-patriarchy. You are helping to pollinate the minds of our extended network, so they can produce seeds of change to drop in their own communities, spreading the tendrils of intersectional feminism throughout our city and beyond.

The press is one of the ways we create, produce & distribute our own transformative feminist media. Joining at this level means you’re supporting a model of fair distribution of royalties and ownership to authors; a book process that honors the author’s vision and intention; and the dissemination of important  stories, poems, tools and knowledge from brilliant minds and hearts.

Every member at the Intersectional Pollinator level will receive the physical, printed copies of new Co––Conspirator Press publications to come out that year.

ON CREATING THE DESIGN

While making my illustration for the Intersectional Pollinator print, I was inspired by the actual pollination process in nature, especially with flowers. I visualized single units of pollen as the star shapes repeated in the center graphic. I felt called to represent flowers and abstract pollen inspired shapes in a flat minimalist style inspired by traditional Iranian textile and carpet design that I regularly draw inspiration from. I have also been investigating the parallels between natural micro units in physical reality (like pollen and even atoms and subatomic particles) with digital units (pixels). I included the portrait in the center to incorporate a human element into the pollination/garden theme. I wanted to illustrate the idea that humans can pollinate one another, lift each other up, and grow healthy grass roots communities the same way flowers in a garden can.
