Benedetta Crippa advocates for an evolved design field grounded in the transformative power of aesthetics. She works as graphic design director in Stockholm running her own studio practice, and she is also a recognised educator and advocate on the intersections of visuality and power. An engaging speaker, she lectures on visual sustainability, power-critical design practice and feminist methodologies for design, from private companies to the international stage, most recently at the RGD Design Thinkers national conference of Canada (2021) and the AIGA Design Conference (USA, 2020). Benedetta has intervened as speaker in Sweden, USA, Canada, Switzerland, Norway, Italy, Finland and Germany, and she comfortably presents both remotely and in person. Her talks use a high degree of visual material and relatable language to make the fine mechanics of visual culture accessible to both specialists and the general public. Check her CV for a full list of talks. Portrait credit: Sofia Runarsdotter
