As conditions have shifted throughout 2020, the world has been challenged to adapt. And Pratt’s designers, artists, scholars, educators, and visionaries have responded how they do best: with agency, action, and innovation. It’s that brilliant, resilient spirit that we have been drawing on at Prattfolio, the magazine of Pratt Institute, as we too have been called to rethink and reinvent. The Fall/Winter 2020 issue, focused on adaptation, transition, and response to change, challenges, and uncertainty, is coming to you fully digital.
We hope you enjoy the issue, and as we move through this year of transformation, look forward to uncovering new Pratt work, stories, and voices, along with vibrant ways to illuminate them in all the formats available to us.
