Graphic Design Archives - David Bernie
I aspire to create through the inspirations that surround me – from thoughts to visuals. I capture images with cameras, document thoughts with a pen & paper, create visuals with colors and textures, and illustrate my life through the medium of art. I am an indigenous (Yankton Sioux – Ihanktonwan Dakota) contemporary artist. I am David Bernie.

David Bernie Stay Indigenized Shirt

T-Shirt – Stay Indigenized

Stay Indigenized

The Stay Indigenized design is based off of the concept of re-appropriating road signs with an indigenized message.

The “Stay in Lane” sign was used as the template as it felt appropriate to share the idea of staying true to your roots; keeping focus.

David Bernie Roam Free Shirt

T-Shirt – Roam Free

Roam Free

The Roam Free design is based off of the concept of breaking free from institutionalization and colonization and breaking away the way of thinking from the confines of boundaries.

The “Animal Crossing” sign was used as the template with the addition of wording.

David Bernie Indigenous State of Mind Shirt

T-Shirt – Indigenous State of Mind

Indigenous State of Mind

The Indigenous State of Mind design is to reflect a person’s the way of thinking and how their culture and background influences such. It is the message that I am Aboriginal and my values and beliefs have been passed on to me and they will be instrumental to how I live my life.

David Bernie Headdress Appropriation Shirt

T-Shirt – Headdress Appropriation

Headdress Appropriation

The Headdress Appropriation design is based off of the idea of popular culture continuously appropriating the plains tribal identity of headdresses at music festivals, fashion shows, and during Halloween.

The use of “headdress” in this instance is fluid and also reflects on the use of various regional tribal icons. You can easily find the use of “Navajo” used in conjunction with “panties.”

Poster – Save the Indian

Save the Indian

This poster is in regards to the U.S. federal government policy to “Americanize” Native Americans, largely through the education of Native youth, at boarding schools which sought to systematically strip away all tribal culture. Students were forced to drop their Indian names, forbade the speaking of native tongues, and forced to cut off their long hair. Brutal methods were used for “civilizing” the “savages.” The motto of this policy is “Kill the Indian Save the Man.”
