Join us as we welcome Renata Graw. Renata's work and collaborations entail a wide spectrum of projects in the areas of print, new media and installation. Her work has been recognized by Communication Arts, Creative Review, Eye, Print, AIGA, The Art Directors Club, The Society of Typographic Arts and the Type Directors Club.

Under the flag of The Normal Studio, Renata Graw thinks of her work as “pretty normal, but I believe sometimes normal is important.” Rooted in a desire for design to become more available, and for its users to consider the social possibilities of the discipline, Graw, part of the interdisciplinary team that spearheads the exhibition design for the Obama Foundation Center—a campus for active citizenship, inspiration and empowerment in Chicago’s South Side— sees similar shifts in its future of the field. “Design is both a reflection of the present and a desire to create something new. I see a democratization of design, we all have access to the same tools, so designers should focus on ideas that move culture and society forward.”

Recognized as a leading authority in creative community, we're incredibly excited to have Renata join us. Be sure to register for what promises to be a memorable evening.
