Patty K. Wongpakdee is a NY based graphic artist and an Associate Professor of Graphic Design at New York Institute of Technology.
Prior to teaching, Patty was a Senior Designer/Art Director for Ernst & Young. In that capacity, she designed the artistic components for business proposals, brochures, and invitations for corporate functions. Clients have included CBS, General Electric, IBM, SUNY University Hospital and MaxMara. She currently continues to create graphics for various clients but is truly proud to give back to a worthy organization by doing pro-bono graphic design work for the American Cancer Society, NYC.
She has received an award for Outstanding Design for a Corporate Publication in the 58th Annual Graphics Arts Exhibition. She is also a recipient of the In-house Design Award from Graphic Design USA. The award recognizes her print designs for the American Cancer Society. Her art and design work is featured in various print and online publications.
In addition to teaching, Patty is committed to her own artwork. She merges her graphic design sensibilities with traditional paint-like qualities. To further this concept, she often applies paint directly onto the image, which was printed on canvas.
