Abby Guido

Abby Guido is a communication designer and educator whose research examines the process of implementing graphic design principles while building complex systems. These systems include branding, typographic hierarchies, data visualizations, information graphics (infographics), user experience design and user interface design. She is also interested in exploring how advances in technology may disrupt the industry and change the landscape of teaching graphic design.
When not teaching, Guido spends time creating work for Abby Ryan Design, a design studio she founded that focuses on branding, design for the screen and information design (infographics). Notable clients include Nancy Silverton, Gino Angelini and Research for Action.
Guido is one of the founders of PhillyRow, a research collaboration studying the unique aspects of the Philadelphia rowhouse. This creative endeavor has produced various rowhouse themed collateral including a series of screen printed infographic posters featuring distinctive styles of rowhomes. Currently, PhillyRow is working on producing a mobile app to help Philadelphia rowhome owners maintain and manage their homes.
Guido recently assumed a position as an Adobe Education Leader, connecting her with over 170 educators across the globe.
