Beatriz Lozano (BFA‘16) has been recognized with a 2023 National Design Award in the Emerging Designer category, awarded “in recognition of a designer or practice who has demonstrated profound talent in the early stages of their career.”
A Cooper Hewitt initiative launched in 2000 as a project of the White House Millennium Council, The National Design Awards bring national recognition to the ways in which design enriches everyday life.
Lozano will be honored in a ceremony held on October 5, 2023 to celebrate the 24th class of winners.
Beatriz Lozano is a designer, typographer, and educator exploring how technology can push typography to exist at the intersection of the physical and digital world. Originally on the path to becoming a mechanical engineer, Lozano shifted to graphic design as her involvement in immigrant rights activism exposed her to the power of visual communication. She is dedicated to using design to create social change and bridge the gap in access to resources and knowledge. Lozano’s work has been recognized by the Art Directors Club, Type Directors Club, Communication Arts, and PRINT. In 2023, she was awarded the Art Directors Club Young Gun Award, which recognizes the world’s best creatives under the age of 30. She teaches interaction design at Parsons and was formerly a design director at Sunday Afternoon.
