Associate Professor of Design Judy Livingston, School of Art and Design at Alfred University, recently served as guest curator, designer, and participant in an exhibition of posters and typographic works entitled EXTRA BOLD at Rowan College of South Jersey, in Millville, NJ.

The exhibition brought together eight designers from Italy and the United States who are passionate about the power of graphic design to raise awareness, break through apathy and complacency, and create positive social change.

Livingston’s works in EXTRA BOLD featured laser-engraved Hebrew and English typographic illustrations of ancient biblical quotes as core tenets of social justice. The illustrations are part of her campaign for creating inclusive bar and bat mitzvah ceremonies.

Other participating designers included Armando Milani, of Milani Design, Italy; Ginette Caron, of Ginette Caron Communication Design, Italy; Carlotta Origoni, of  Origoni Steiner Studio, Italy; Professor Emeritus of Design Chaz Maviyane-Davies,  Massachusetts College of Art and Design; Josh MacPhee, founder, International Cooperative Justseeds; Sherri Baker Hamilton, creative manager, Wegmans Food Markets and former assistant professor and chair, Art and Design Department, Nazareth College; and Professor of Design Jan Conradi, Rowan University.
