Anne Ghory-Goodman, an award-winning graphic designer and educator, has joined the College of Imaging Arts and Sciences as a visiting scholar.
Ghory-Goodman comes to RIT as professor emeritus from the Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design. Previously she had served as a professor, department chair and director of graduate studies during 19 years at the University of Cincinnati, where she was instrumental in the emerging careers of a number of major American designers—including Pentagram partner Michael Bierut. Her own design practice has included leadership roles in textbook publishing and children’s literature in Boston.
“We are very fortunate to have a colleague of Anne’s stature join our faculty,” said R. Roger Remington, RIT’s Vignelli distinguished professor of design. “I have known Anne for many years and she is a most experienced teacher, design professional and a major figure in the world of graphic design education.”
Selected for the first undergraduate class enrolling women at Yale University, Ghory-Goodman also received a graduate degree from the Yale School of Art and later pursued advanced study at the School of Design in Basel, Switzerland.
She has won a number of awards and grants, most notably from the Society for Experiential Graphic Design and the National Endowment for the Arts, where she received both a visual artists fellowship in photography and a design arts fellowship. She also has been recognized for publication, Web and poster design projects.
Ghory-Goodman has lectured and published articles on topics ranging from photographic history to the role of design in social change. She also has spoken at national and international venues and exhibited her work widely, including recently in Beijing, Lima and Havana.
Ghory-Goodman previously served as adjunct professor in the visual communication design graduate program at RIT and she is supporting programming in the Vignelli Center for Design Studies, where she spoke last month as part of the Design Conversations lecture series.
