Manuel Miranda Practice (MMP) designs things that humanize connections between audiences and organizations. MMP’s work is engaged in using graphic design to make places and content visible, legible, and navigable to people. Working within community, cultural, institutional, and corporate contexts, the studio strives to employ multiple visual rhetorics across an expansive media spectrum.
Owner Manuel Miranda is an adjunct faculty member of the graduate design program at the Yale School of Art and Vice President of the AIGA New York board of directors. He has spoken on design and visitor experience for AIGA New York, New York University, PENN Design, Silliman University, the University of Washington, and the Yale School of Art. In 2015, he led a team that created the winning proposal for Van Alen Institute's "National Parks Now", a competition to imagine new audience engagement strategies at urban parks for the National Park Service. In April 2016, the Mayor's Office appointed him to the Public Design Commission for the City of New York.
MMP is based in the Lower East Side of New York City. The studio joins, builds, or manages teams where appropriate on a per-project basis. Please get in touch for more information.
