COLLEGE OF VISUAL AND PERFORMING ARTS
Jane Ciminera is a senior completing her BFA in Communications Design with a minor in Women and Gender Studies, which fuels the concept and content of her work. She is a member of Women in Design, as well as the Communications Director of the SU AIGA executive board. Jane believes that a creative’s work should challenge societal norms and injustice. She is interested in creating for change, innovation, and justice. Last year she had the opportunity to present conceptual designs to the UN for the 2020 World Expo in Dubai, which tackled issues of food insecurity, technological access, education, reproductive health, climate change, and more. Jane is fiercely devoted to using her abilities for socially conscious design.
