About Vanessa Bowen

Vanessa Bowen is a Diné (Navajo) multi-faceted artist, graphic designer, UX designer, and entrepreneur. Her work gravitates toward the intersection of design and social equity.

In 2016, she became well-known for producing “Make America Native Again” hats as a way of starting conversation about the problematic history behind Donald Trump’s presidential campaign slogan — “Make America Great Again” — and to raise awareness for marginalized indigenous peoples in the U.S.

Her work is guided by the strong belief that design can problem solve and lead to the implementation of new ideas.

Bowen plays house and techno at local DJ gigs, rides her bike for charity, and is currently falling in love with modular synthesizers.
