Judy Toretti
Art Center College of Design

Judy Toretti is a designer, maker and researcher who’s work revolves around creating community-led action through conversation. The core of her work is not about designing scalable, one-size-fits-all solutions, but about using design to open up a space for discussion around complicated, sensitive and often unspoken issues, which can lead to a different kind of community advocacy. Originally from western Pennsylvania, Judy received her BFA in Media Arts from Robert Morris University in Pittsburgh, PA. She worked as a freelance designer for several years in Pittsburgh, Tucson and Los Angeles before taking a more permanent position in the communications department of International Medical Corps’ headquarters in Santa Monica, CA. Judy received her MFA from the Media Design Practices / Field Track at Art Center College of Design where her project partners included Intel Labs’ Interaction and Experience Research Group and UNICEF’s Tech Innovations Unit in Kampala, Uganda.
