Arceneaux’s personal design work and research focus on the discovery of African Americans who throughout history have made significant contributions to the field of graphic design. She's also interested in the visual representation of black people in the media and popular culture, especially through the lens of stereotypes. The use of typography has a strong presence in her work—she is a type enthusiast who enjoys hand-lettering, typesetting and deconstructing type through a combination of analog and digital processes.
