Graphic designer Hannah Smotrich’s work centers on issues of community, cultural history, identity and voice. Her projects explore the stories of our individual lives and the collective narratives of our communities, the many ways in which we communicate — and the walls we construct that complicate connection. Recent work includes a participatory public art project at the Jewish Cultural Festival in Krakow, Poland, an integrated system of street signs and publications for Neighborhood Heritage Trails in Washington, DC, and an exhibit for Museum L‑A on the lives and community of textile workers in Lewiston, Maine.
