Welcome to an open lecture with Nicole Killian, graphic designer & artist based in Richmond, USA.

Nicole Killian’s work uses graphic design, publishing, video, objects and installation to investigate how the structures of the internet, mobile messaging, and shared online platforms affect contemporary interaction and shape cultural identity from a queer perspective. They are interested in the repetition, looping, and dissemination of content. They think about catnip and bird toys, scratching and the depths (or voids) of the desktop folder.

Nicole has been invited to Konstfack to share their work and raise questions about approaches to queering graphic design and graphic design education. During their visit, they will also be running a week-long workshops with BA Graphic design & Illustration students.

They are currently co-director of the Design, Visual Communications MFA and Assistant Professor in the Department of Graphic Design at Virginia Commonwealth University, and recently served as guest editor for the Walker Art Center's Soundboard and organized "How Will We Queer Design Education without Compromise?"
