Daniela Marx is an Associate Professor of Graphic Design at Loyola University New Orleans, and has lived in the city since 2001. As coordinator of the only Graphic Design bachelor's degree program in New Orleans, she looks to Loyola's Jesuit mission of social justice to shape Loyola's design students. In the past she worked at Fabrica, an international research center for design located in Treviso, Italy and as a designer for George Magazine in New York City. She later received her MFA at California Institute of the Arts, where she focused on social political issues through motion graphics and screen printing.
Aside from teaching at Loyola University New Orleans, she does freelance graphic design focusing on motion graphics, print work and silkscreening, usually collaborating with local artists, musicians, politicians and writers. Her newest project developed from her sabbatical show thinkNEWorleans, a design campaign that encourages New Orleanians to think about their community and how they can be a part of creating the city we aspire to live in. Daniela also had a one-year sabbatical at the American University of Sharjah, United Arab Emirates.
