Artist Talk – Abby Chen, graphic designer
Tuesday, October 9 , 10 a.m. Atrium
Abby Chen, a China-born, New York City-based graphic designer, will present “Learning Through Unlearning – pursuing and navigating a non-linear graphic design path.” Since graduating from Parsons School of Design in 2014, she’s continued to pursue an interest in interaction design, exploring the ways that visual design can impact behavior and interaction in exhibition design, cultural projects, and campaigns for social issues. She landed a job at Gallagher, a firm that specializes in museum planning and design, and Chen’s role as a visual designer has her working hand in hand with UX and exhibition designers, developers, and business strategists.
Exploring various tools can also mean going traditional, as it did with It’s Not Just Personal, a fold-out guide to the rights of survivors of sexual violence that’s distributed on college campuses across the U.S. A guest of the Graphic Design Department
