Parsons CD Lecture Series SPRING 2020 [5/6]


Ramon Tejada is an independent Dominican/American designer and teacher based in Providence, RI. He works in a hybrid design/teaching practice focusing on collaboration. Ramon is an Assistant Professor at RISD in Providence.

His recent design research interest lies in the areas of disruption and puncturing of the Design Canon, inclusivity, diversity, collaboration and the expansion and openings of design narratives and languages beyond the “traditional” Westernized paradigm of design. A practice he has named as one of “puncturing.”

He has taught in the graduate MFA Communication Design program at Pratt Institute; as well as at the undergraduate level at Parsons/The New School, in the MA at the Minneapolis College of Art & Design (MCAD) and at CUNY–Queens College. He has also spoken and been a guest artist at Cranbrook Academy of Art, Otis College of Art and Design, Ontario College of Art and Design, University of Illinois–Chicago and Pratt Institute among others. Most recently, Ramon has been engaging in collaboration with Silas Munro in developing and running a workshop titled “Throwing the Bauhaus Under the Bus.”

He received an MFA in Graphic Design from Otis College of Art and Design in Los Angeles, and an MFA in Performance Arts from Bennington College.

About Parsons CD Lecture Series

Parsons Communication Design Lecture Series invites designers with a unique perspective on practice; not only to learn from their work but also from the way they work. What drives their work and how do they sustain interest? What are the various forces that shape their projects? How do they manage conflicting interests in collaborations? The series is supported by the School of Art Media and Technology at Parsons School of Design.

Lectures are open to public.

The lecture details are announced through email and
