Manuel Miranda Practice (MMP) uses 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. MMP is based in the Lower East Side of New York City. Please get in touch for more information.
In addition to being the owner and lead designer of MMP, Manuel Miranda is active in design advocacy, education, and service. He is an adjunct faculty member of the graduate design program at the Yale School of Art, formerly the Vice President of the AIGA New York board of directors, and has spoken on design and visitor experience for the National Park Service, the Center for Urban Pedagogy, New York University Steinhardt, University of Pennsylvania School of Design, Silliman University College of Performing and Visual Arts, the University of Washington, and Wayne State University. He has created design programming for the Museum of Arts and Design in New York City, and has developed community-based design projects funded by ArtPlace America and the NYC Small Business Services Neighborhood Challenge Grant. 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. Previously, he was a design director at 2x4, and a designer at Brand Integration Group at Ogilvy.
