Kimberly Mitchell

Kimberly Mitchell is an Associate Professor of Visual Communication at Northern 

Arizona University. She received her BFA in Graphic Design from Bradley University, a Post-Baccalaureate MFA from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and her MFA in Graphic Design with a minor in Gerontology, from Iowa State University. She has worked with clients like the Grand Canyon Association, Friends of Flagstaff National Monuments, Tazewell County Children’s Advocacy Center and the Arizona Republic. 

She has been an AIGA member of the Arizona Design community since 2008 and served as a Faculty Advisor to the NAU Student Group for five years. Prior to AIGA Arizona, she was an active member of the Chicago chapter. She has spoken at numerous international design and design education conferences about the power of social impact of design. Her research focuses on underserved audiences – and how designers can help make things more universal for everyone involved. 

She truly believes that design can make a difference in the world, and it is her goal as an educator to share this knowledge. She wishes to inspire her students and encourage them to use their skills in a positive way so that they can be heard. 


Their Talk...

Parallel: A Game of Design is an AIGA Innovate grant-funded project designed to reach underserved high school students and encourage them to become designers. In this session, the team behind Parallel – John Gialanella, Eric Torres, Jen Pace, Kimberly Mitchell & Robert Franklin – will discuss their project process, show the game’s progress, and most importantly, give a super fun teaser of what the game is all about. You’ll also have a chance to play the game yourself during breakouts on Sunday.
