Juliette Cezzar is a designer, educator and author based in New York City. She is currently the director of the BFA Communication Design and BFA Design & Technology programs at Parsons / The New School. She holds an MFA in Graphic Design from Yale University and a professional degree in Architecture from Virginia Tech.
She established her small studio, e.a.d., in 2005. Her work has primarily been concerned with the communication of design or art practice of creative or cultural clients to a non-design audience. Her approach often traverses the space between two and three dimensions, between the digital and the real, and between shaping content and shaping form.
While books anchor the practice, her work has included co-design for interactive screens, wayfinding, and labels at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, creative direction and design for RES Magazine, design direction for the Linked Media Group at Vh1, art direction for the New York Times, exhibition graphics and invitations for Columbia University’s Graduate School of Architecture, Art, and Planning, and the design of several websites, identities, and invitations. For MoMA’s reopening in 2004, she designed the identities, collateral, and signage for its restaurant and two cafes, the reopening invitations and the new store packaging.
She is also the author-designer of four books: Office Mayhem, Paper Pilot, Paper Captain, and Paper Astronaut. The Paper books include die-cut designs for three-dimensional card models for readers to assemble. She is currently starting work on a fifth book.
