Deb Caponera is a passionate educator, a well respected designer, and an award-winning photographer with great passion for design, typography, printing processes, and the history of and relationship between technology and communication.

She believes design and creativity can uniquely influence and impact our lives and should strive to teach important lessons in social responsibility, equity and diversity to ensure a more fair and sustainable society. Forging deeper connections through inclusivity, advocacy, and volunteer service, Deb instills a sense of working and creating for the greater good within her students, and in her own artwork.

“I’m deeply interested the power of design as a tool for communication and influence. Living in a culture that is largely guided by visual messaging I aim to help students look beyond themselves to deliver compelling messaging through their work that makes a difference. Simultaneously, I guide them towards understanding the power they possess as communicators and the responsibility that goes with that power.”

Deb is a 2023 AIGA Mentor, a member of the Art Students League of New York, and volunteers with various civic organizations.
