Taylan De Johnette is a Minneapolis based Designer and Visual artist from Southern California. She was a member of the inaugural cohort of Studio #400 and currently forms part of P.F. studios in the Northrup King building. Taylan is passionate about the socially innovative side of Art and Design. She loves storytelling, translating experiences, and showcasing alternative perspectives. Her favorite quote is by Social Entrepreneur and equity Designer, Antionette Carol: “What many designers don’t realize is that they have the power to truly create change…we have the power to develop approaches around systematic impact, from micro-campaigns to macro policy changes. Our mode of being moves beyond visual to intellectual and actionable.”
