Joel Kern is a designer at MTWTF. Joel's constructionist design approach takes shape through a range of media types — oscillating between the characteristics of typography, multi-materiality, and spatiality. This approach straddles the borders of graphic design, environmental design, and social sculpture. Joel has engaged in design collaborations with C-U-B-E: Experimental Design Lab, the campaign of Marcia Ranglin-Vassell, and the Humanities Action Lab. Joel received his MFA (Graphic Design) from Rhode Island School of Design and his BFA (Graphic Design) from the Lamar Dodd School of Art — University of Georgia. Joel is interested in the human relationship to public space and new ways of connecting communities.
