Keetra Dean Dixon is a designer and artist who relocated in 2014 from NYC to rural Alaska where she tests the claim “I can work from anywhere” by building a new studio practice with a remote home base. Dixon traded in her team leading role as an Experiential Design Director for more independent practices, including lettering, sculpture, and product design. Her hybrid design background continues to lead her work towards speculative terrain, leveraging emergent technologies and process focused making.
Dixon has been recognized on several fronts including a U.S. Presidential award, a place in the permanent design collection at the SFMOMA, and the honorable ranking of ADC Young Gun. Her clients have included NYTimes, Nike, VW, and Coach. She’s shown at the Walker Art Center, the Smithsonian’s Cooper-Hewitt, and the Museum of Arts and Design in NYC.
