Hello! I'm Amy. I am an Associate Professor of Graphic Design at the State University of New York at New Paltz, teaching courses in web and interaction design, as well as 2D design and visual communication. I received my MFA in Intermedia Design from SUNY New Paltz and my Bachelor of Art in English Cultural Studies from McGill University.
Presentations about my research and design pedagogy include: Type@Cooper West, San Francisco (2017), the Type Directors Club (2016), TypeCon (2012, 2007, 2005), the AIGA Design Educators Conference (2013, 2008), Theorizing the Web (2014), among others.
I have participated in several collaborative digital scholarship / humanities initiatives, including serving on the organizing committee of the AIGA Design Education Conference, Converge: Disciplinarities and Digital Scholarship (2017), and One Week | One Tool, an NEH-funded Institute for Advanced Topics in the Digital Humanities (2013). Jessica Barness and I recently received the 2017 Design Incubation Communication Design Education Award in Published Research for our special issue of Visible Language (49.3).
