Meet the Fall 2020 Public Access Design Jury!

Meet the Fall 2020 Public Access Design Jury!

We're delighted to announce our latest Public Access Design jury, who will help us select our first Public Access Design collaborations for 2021! This year we are joined by renald Louissaint, Dr. Carole Gothelf, Ting Ting Fu, and Boyeon Choi (clockwise, from top left).

renald Louissaint

renald Louissaint is a Brooklyn based designer and illustrator who balances the different approaches required for both practices to inform all of his work. His illustration focuses on introspection and self, and is expressed through a light, minimalist touch. In contrast, his design work is lush and detailed, carefully researched and composed with typography. He recently graduated from the University of Connecticut where he received his BFA in graphic design and currently holds a role as a brand designer at Medium.

Dr. Carole Gothelf

Dr. Carole Gothelf is Associate Vice President for Individualized Supports at AHRC-New York City, an organization that is committed to finding ways for people with Intellectual/Developmental Disabilities (I/DD) to build full lives. She earned her Doctorate at Columbia University Teachers College in Special Education and her Bachelors in Art Education from New York University. For over thirty years, Dr. Gothelf has provided individualized, person centered services for people with I/DD. This consists of the promotion of the self-advocacy agenda of full integration into the community, opportunities for individualized housing, full participation in higher education, and transitioning from school to adult life and meaningful employment. She was drawn to CUP because it married her two passions of design and social justice into an interest in the visual display of information. In 2016, AHRC was chosen by CUP’s Making Policy Public program to develop “What does it mean to live in my own place?” a poster for people with I/DD illustrating their rights to make their own choices about where to live and how to live their lives.

Ting Ting Fu

Ting Ting Fu was born in the Fujian Province of China and moved to Sunset Park, Brooklyn at age 7. Since the age of 12, Ting Ting has been an organizer with UPROSE. She started as a Summer intern and transitioned to being a Youth Organizer and to Climate Justice Organizer. Today, she is a Lead Organizer and the Operations Coordinator at UPROSE. Throughout the years, Ting has supported dozens of campaigns at UPROSE. Ting Ting now has over 5 years of experience engaging the Sunset Park community in climate adaptation and resilience education. She has facilitated youth teach-ins, and community events educating the community on Environmental and Climate Justice issues and supporting community-led solutions. She is the organizer of POWWA (Protect of Working Waterfront) and UPROSE’s Anti Displacement Work.

Boyeon Choi

Boyeon Choi is an illustrator/graphic designer based in New York. Illustration and design are like her left and right brain.They fulfill her in different ways but are equally rewarding.The two sides often feed and inspire each other and collaborate. Currently, she’s leading a design team at an experiential design agency with a focus on creating virtual event experiences. In her spare time, she loves to create zines and stationery goods for a project group ‘Instant Rabbit’. She also likes to travel and read, which she considers another form of travel. She served the CUP Design Fellowship in 2016.
