Guenet Abraham began her career in New York City as a book designer at Pantheon Books, Random House, and was senior designer for W.W. Norton before she earned her MFA at Yale School of Art. Her work is recognized by the American Institute of Graphic Arts (AIGA), American Association of Museums (AAM), University College & Designers Association (UCDA), and most recently by the Paris Photo – Aperture Foundation PhotoBook Awards: https://aperture.org/blog/2017-photobook-awards-shortlist

In concert with her philosophy as an educator, who teaches graphic design, typography, and visual communication, Abraham maintains an active design practice and consults and designs books for publishers. She creates visual language that speaks to contemporary audiences with impact and appeal.

She has been awarded two consecutive Fulbright Core fellowships for Teaching and Research in Ethiopia for 2017-2018 and for 2018-2019. She teaches at the Alle School of Fine Arts and Design in Addis Ababa.

Her research focuses on the Ethiopia’s murderous Red Terror period under communist rule. She intends to document her research for an upcoming multimedia exhibition.
