Born in 1978 in Germany, Nina Boesch is a New York based graphic designer and artist. She has worked for firms in Germany, Italy, and the United States where she has specialized in interactive media design. Her past projects range from software prototypes and mobile apps to interpretive displays and large-scale media installations for museums and cultural institutions. Boesch holds a BFA with honors from Rhode Island School of Design.
After moving to New York in 2001, Boesch focused more on her artistic interests. Since then, she has been “upcycling” discarded used and expired MetroCards—New York City subway tickets—by turning them into mosaic-like artworks. Each MetroCard collage is a unique one-of-a-kind artwork. Boesch’s collages have been exhibited across the United States, enjoy an international audience, and have found homes with art collectors all over the world.
Boesch won awards from the Art Directors Club, the Industrial Designers Society of America, the Type Directors Club, and others and she received the Adobe Design Achievement Award for her interactive city-guide “Manhattan Dissected” – a multimedia experience showcasing a subjectively viewed Manhattan.
