Sara Duell

I work at the intersection of art and graphic design, with a focus on visual literacy and social justice. Working within a feminist, antiracist framework, I use design to disrupt normative discourses and create transformative, pleasurable spaces. I also write about the hidden politics of visual language. I have a bachelor degree in design from Emily Carr University of Art and Design (Vancouver, Canada) and split my time between New York City and Stockholm. 

Since 2016 I have split my practice between freelance projects (such as photobook designs for Aperture Foundation and a feminist anthology of breakups for Topos Press) and my research and arts practice (including a residency at the Vermont Studio Center and publishing an op-ed in Design Observer). Prior to that I was Senior Designer at the official tourism and partnership organization of New York, where I had a leading role in the company and website rebrand which was awarded a Webby award and the HOW in-house design award in 2017.
