Keetra Dean Dixon

Keetra Dean Dixon is an American designer, director, artist & teacher. With her hybrid design background she has been known to be very experimental with her work, in the process leveraging emergent technologies. She uses a wide range of mediums in her playful & process-orientated work such her work for the 2009 Presidential Inauguration where she used wax, acrylic paint & foam. She often works with the complexities of semantics, with her projects often focused on the fallibility of communication, attempts to connect, and unintended output.

She has been recognised on several fonts including a U.S. presidential award, a place in the permanent design collection at the SFMOMA & the honourable ranking of ADC Young Gun (6). She has been featured in numerous publications and exhibits, including feature articles in Time, étapes, + Surface & commissioned works for the ’09 U.S. Presidential Inauguration and the ’12 Olympic games.

  1. I really like the designs on Keetra Dean Dixon’s work and how she uses space to emphasise the message she is trying to convey like how in one of her works “aloud” is rising when “allowed” is falling and that really works with what she is doing. I also like how she uses homonyms throughout her work that kind of Mocs famous sayings such as ‘yes and no’ she wrote it as ‘yes and know’.
