Keetra Dean Dixon is a designer, director, and artist. Her hybrid design background and expertise in graphic design often lead her work toward speculative terrain, such as the leveraging of emergent technologies and the shortcomings of ubiquitous creative tools. She has been recognized on several fronts, receiving the US presidential award, the ADC Young Gun award, and a place in the permanent design collection at the SFMOMA. She has been featured in numerous publications and exhibits, including feature articles in Time, étapes, and Surface, as well as commissioned works for the 2009 US presidential inauguration and the 2012 Olympic Games.
Dixon has held solo exhibits at the Kessels Kramer Gallery KKOutlet and she has shown at the Walker Art Center and the Smithsonian Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum. She has acted as the design director for installations featured at the 2008 Venice Architecture Biennale and 2010 01SJ Biennial. In 2013, Dixon was a featured speaker at TYPO SF and participated in INCONGRUOUS, a residency for “brazen experimentation in design practices,” with the Museum of Arts and Design in New York City.
