Ginette Caron, born in Canada and Italian by adoption, is a unique and emblematic figure in the design world, an example of how one can bring two worlds together while directing complex communication processes. She has a multidisciplinary vision that ranges from visual identity, publishing, packaging, exhibit design and archigraphics to products while keeping her extremely refined design approach. Her graphic work searches the essence of the question and combines poetry and playfulness to create unexpected communication systems.
She graduated in Graphic Design at Concordia University – Montréal, city where she worked for a few years. She then lived in Bologna and Venice before founding in Milan her own studio. Former in-house design director at Benetton and Prada, she has worked for clients such as Bulgari, Knoll, Moleskine, San Carlo, Swatch and Vatican. Her works have been published, exhibited and awarded internationally. She has been elected to membership at the Royal Canadian Academy of Arts. Member of international jury boards, she has been professor at IUAV Venice and now at Raffles University in Milan. She often give lectures and workshops in universities in Canada, China, France, India, Italy, Switzerland, Tunisia and Turkey.
She is advisor for PosterForTomorrow, a NGO based in Paris using graphic design to create awareness on major humanitarian issues.
