Hi, I'm Bobby Genalo, a designer and educator in Brooklyn, NY.
At the moment I'm working on a line of limited edition wooden toys, teaching design courses at Pratt Institute, and have recently completed my Master's thesis at NYU's Interactive Telecommunications Program.
I'm interested in communicating design's evolving role in confronting and solving global issues. The internet has provided us (or, rather, we have provided it) with the community and information necessary to achieve a broadened perspective on how our actions impact one another and the pale blue dot we inhabit.
When I graduated from the Maryland Institute College of Art in 2006, I found myself working for a number of years in small design firms in and around New York City. After some success as the Creative Director for the political action committee Music For Democracy, I began freelancing from my home in Bushwick, Brooklyn, where I also ran Drwr Gallery. In 2009 I was asked to compete in the AIGA's graphic design reality show, Command X, and in 2010 released some recordings from my time at Drwr Gallery.
