Graphic Design majors: get excited for PUSH 2016!
PUSH is our spring semester back-to-school workshop that challenges you in conceptual, collaborative and creative ways outside the bounds of the typical design classroom.
We are excited to announce that our guest facilitator for the Spring 2016 PUSH workshop will be Keetra Dean Dixon! Check out her bio below.
More details will be revealed on the PUSH blog as the date draws closer, but rest assured that PUSH 2016 will be fun, frantic and full of surprises.
Keetra Dean Dixon is a Designer, Director, and Artist. Her hybrid design background and expertise in graphic design often leads her work towards speculative terrain, leveraging emergent technologies and the shortcomings of ubiquitous creative tools. She has been recognized on several fronts including a U.S. presidential award, a place in the permanent design collection at the SFMOMA, and the honorable ranking of ADC Young Gun (6). She has been featured in numerous publications and exhibits, including feature articles in Time, étapes, + Surface, commissioned works for the ’09 U.S. Presidential Inauguration and the ’12 Olympic games. Dixon has held solo exhibits at the Kessel Kramer Gallery: KKOutlet, shown at the Walker Art Center & the Smithsonian’s Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum. She has acted as Design Director for installations featured at ’08 Venice Architecture Biennale and ’10 01SJ Biennial. In 2013 Dixon participated in INCONGRUOUS, a residency for “brazen experimentation in design practices” with Museum of Arts and Design in NYC.
