BIOGRAPHY

Information Design, Visual Communication

Angela Norwood explores design as a practice for demonstrating knowledge and reflecting values. She is most interested in the potential for traditional knowledge systems to inform contemporary design practice and is currently co-developing such an approach to designing called Reciprocal Design, a mindset grounded in designers’ increased accountability in the pursuit of just and sustainable solutions. This approach has informed her career as an award-winning designer, educator, and researcher. Having designed systems-based corporate communications, ease of access for US voters abroad, and taught visual literacy to scientists, data analysts, and indigenous community groups, Norwood believes design is essential for addressing 21st century challenges, and has much to learn from traditional knowledge in order to do so most effectively. Her work has been published in a range of scholarly and  industry publications and is included in the American Institute of Graphic Arts (AIGA) National Design Archives.
