Joelle Riffle


Joelle, originally from Cleveland, Ohio, is a recent transplant to Boston from New York City, where she received her BFA in Communication Design at Parsons School of Design and explored a great diversity of work and design experiences that inform her perspective on design as a means to cultivate connection, empathy, and growth, where creativity and love are most needed, on the margins.

As MASS Design Group’s in-house graphic designer, she’s eager to uplift the work of the organization through collateral, publications, and exhibitions. Joelle seeks to deepen her creative practice and research to explore the relationship between graphic design and social justice movements, and how the designed world shapes and responds to power and privilege.
