Taylan De Johnette is a Minneapolis based Designer and Visual artist from Southern California.
She was previously a member of the inaugural cohort of Studio #400 and currently forms part of
P.F. studios in the Northrup King building. She is a 2020-2021 PLACES: Research and Design Fellow,
the 2021 recipient of the Forecast: Early career and Research Grant and a Lead Lab assistant at

Taylan is passionate about the socially innovative side of Art and Design. She loves storytelling,
translating experiences, and showcasing alternative perspectives. Her favorite quote is by Social
Entrepreneur and equity Designer, Antionette Carol: “What many designers don’t realize is that they
have the power to truly create change…we have the power to develop approaches around systematic
impact, from micro-campaigns to macro policy changes. Our mode of being moves beyond visual to
intellectual and actionable.”
