Some people get their inspiration from others and some people are the
inspiration. Joele Cuyler is the latter.
In 1999 Joele Cuyler was Art Director for six special Millennium issues for the New York Times Magazine, all of which have sealed her place in design for the next thousand years . . . literally! The six issues have been sealed in a "Time Capsule" designed by Santiago
Calatrava, located at the Museum of Natural History in New York City and will not be opened until the year 3000.
Aside from guaranteeing her place in history, Cuyler prefers to live in the here and now. Her relentless passion for design and her curiosity to embrace the new gives her an advantage – an ability to bridge all print applications and the many faceted platforms of new media.
Cuyler's work is intelligent, innovative and inspirational. Her eloquent typography and creative wit establishes her along side all the design “greats”. Her work has been awarded gold and silver medals by several major design institutions including AIGA, Society of Publications Design, Art Directors Club of New York and LA, Print, and Graphics.
While at NYU Cuyler did her master’s thesis on a "museum handheld wireless device". Museum visitors could use this devise from a distance to access information about individual artworks and get a global explanation of the context from which the work was created. Joele also designed a prototype for a World War II interactive memorial wall, which was a zeitgeist of sound, images and personal histories from that time.
Cuyler holds a Master’s degree in telecommunications from the prestigious Tisch School of the Arts at New York University in New York City. Her Coach House Press book design is in the permanent collection at the Art Gallery of Ontario, Toronto, Canada.
