Brockett Horne

Teaching Professor

Brockett Horne is a designer, educator, and writer. Her creative work encourages audiences to question their own ways of consuming design. Clients include the Baltimore Museum of Art, Johns Hopkins University, Decentering Whiteness working group, and Harvard University. She has won multiple design awards and presents her work internationally. Her research interests include: information design, typography and power, packaging in the early 20th century, and monograms. With Louise Sandhaus and Briar Levit, she is currently collaborating as Co-Director of The Peoples Graphic Design Archive, a crowd-sourced online platform that enables new and expanded stories about graphic design history. This experimental project asks each of us to write history instead of reserving narratives for only those with special training or access to exclusive tools. The project has received multiple grants and has been presented internationally.

Before joining Northeastern, she served as department chair of Graphic Design at MICA in Baltimore. She holds a BFA from Carnegie Mellon University, an MFA from Rhode Island School of Design, and an MA from the Bard Graduate Center.
