Picture of Robert

Greetings. I’m Robert McConnell, a graphic designer from Brooklyn, New York with a longstanding affinity for visual systems, information mapping and typographic-centric design. This site contains a selection of my client-facing projects, student work and self-initiated design inquiries.

I received an MFA from the Graphic Design graduate program at Rhode Island School of Design in June 2019. My research and design work culminated in a thesis book, titled Standards, Rules, Setting, which interpreted and analyzed the practice of graphic design as a protocol for communication.

I am currently working as a graphic designer in the Communications and Marketing division (PComm) at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn.
