Sara Duell is a graphic designer based in NYC and Stockholm

I work with social justice, civic and cultural institutions to create high-quality designs that make social messages legible, accessible and inviting to large audiences. I also work directly with artists, writers, editors, filmmakers, curators and other creative practitioners to develop portfolio & project websites, artists books, and marketing material. 

I have 10 years of experience in creative strategy, design for social justice, and book and publication design. Interested in collaborating? Contact me at

Feminist Design in Portuguese

Brazilian photography magazine Revista Zum just published a Portuguese translation of my essay “Feminist Design as a Method, Not Aesthetics“. The essay was originally published in Aperture Foundations Photobook Review in 2019. The translation is by Daniele Queiroz, Curatorial Assistant at the Moreira Salles Institute. A pdf of the english version is available here.

The project website also features interviews, profiles and fiction by lesbian/queer women and non-binary people. WMN currently has an Instagram following of 10K+
