Along with her role as Assistant Professor of Graphic Design at Rutgers University-Newark, Chantal is a founding member of IntraCollaborative, a team of designers and educators sharing a deep-seated interest in design and its relevance to the social sector.
Chantal integrates publicly engaged practice and design education through her work at Express Newark, as Co-Director of Visual Means and Design Consortium, two academic programs that model a design-studio working experience in which faculty, students, researchers and community partners engage in a collaborative design process to create impact in the city of Newark.
Through my academic research at Rutgers University-Newark, I’ve experienced a clear intersection and productive exchange between my career focus, my role in the classroom and my responsibility to the community — through collaboration, co-building, social engagement and service learning — so I continued to investigate ways in which social contexts can be applied to the fundamentals of graphic design: image, word, message-making and the technological conditions of the medium.
One of the most important aspects of my professional development has been the collaborative process. The strategy, decision making and design process behind highly charged social issues, are more purposely founded and more democratic when it is informed by a collaborative and/or participatory process with partners, clients, audiences.
NUBE Gallery is a contemporary art space fostering both local and international artists, in Santa Cruz de la Sierra, Bolivia.
The identity features the word "NUBE" (CLOUD in Spanish) suspended over a horizon line which at the same time, in musical notation, represents the symbol for silence — NUBE being, an un-obstructive, silent space or white canvas that supports artists in their development and as a platform to promote their voices by providing them with local and international exposure.
Following the concept of the brand, the promotional postcards display imagery that can be identified as environments for silence, contemplation and introspection.
