Wixárika Calendar

Perpetual calendar designed in collaboration. (Cassie McDaniel, Avery Smith, Sarah Corona, teachers and students of San Miguel).
I am a designer, researcher, and Professor of graphic design at the University of Florida. I am interested in the social, cultural, and political aspects of design, especially as these relate to globalization and decoloniality but also in ways we can use design processes and strategies to address wicked problems. This year, I am also Interim Director of the School of Art + Art History at UF.
I have two research projects 1) Design for Development (D4D) initiative, in which I and my students partner with Maya artisan-entrepreneurs to develop, brand, and market their products and 2) the Mira Project, in which I explore the visual representation of Mexican-ness through creative work and writing.
