Happy Hispanic Heritage Month!
This month, which is observed each year from September 15 to October 15, is a celebration of the history, cultures, and contributions of the Latinx community.
In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, we asked our team to share some of their favorite Latinx influencers and creators.
Here’s Fohr’s list of 10 creators to follow in 2023:
As an art director, illustrator, and content creator in NYC, Eric Sedeño is a creative force to be reckoned with.
