Nio Ono is a graphic designer and developer based in New York City. Through her work in visual identity, graphic systems, and computational design, she seeks to find expression in the gaps of our technologic context and explore themes of reductivism, dualism, and virtuality.
Both through her own studio and as an individual practitioner, Nio has worked with major tech companies, startups, cultural projects, and various other initiatives to create conceptually rooted, computationally enabled graphic systems that prioritize the needs—and celebrate the uniqueness—of our digital world. In these roles, she has led production designers and has collaborated with illustrators, engineers, product designers, animators, and other visual designers to bring these projects to life. Her contributions to these projects have emphasized systems thinking, research, project planning, prototyping, traditional graphic design, and written design guidelines.
She holds a BFA in Communication Design from the School of Design at Carnegie Mellon University.
