Here at MATRIX we are delighted to have Rebecca Tegtmeyer join us as our newly appointed (and newly named) Director of Visual Design Projects. Tegtmeyer is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Art, Art History, and Design and specializes in projects involving graphic design, information design, and infographic visualization (see portfolio here). She recently worked with MATRIX associates Bill Hart-Davidson and Liza Potts to create the above-pictured poster for their food-borne illness project.
Rebecca Tegtmeyer graduated from the University of Kansas with a BFA (emphasis in Visual Communications) and from North Carolina State University’s College of Design with a master’s in Graphic Design. In addition to her teaching role at Michigan State University, Rebecca is also an active member of the AIGA and has served as the Education Director for the Detroit Chapter of the AIGA over the past two years. As a tenure-system professor, Rebecca continues to do work influenced by her graduate thesis, Spatial Mapping and Navigation: Physical and Online Environments, which analyzes the interactions between online and physical environments and the use of technology in our experiences of both.
Tegtmeyer brings to MATRIX the unique skill set of being able to convey large amounts of technical information while, at the same time, incorporating a visually arresting design. Her abilities are most welcome here at MATRIX and we are excited to continue partnering with her on future projects.
