Stephanie Nuria Sabato’s professional life has been dedicated to the
“value of design” through professional practice, critical writing
and—what she considers most important—through the education of designers
for more than 25 years. As a design educator she has been recognized
and honored locally, regionally and internationally—one such honor
includes the Ernest L. Boyer International Award for Excellence in
Teaching, Learning and Technology.
Sabato’s work as an artist and designer has been exhibited throughout
the United States, Europe and Asia. Her work has appeared in several
publications and books, and has earned her numerous honors and awards.
She has been named in the Who’s Who in American Art and the Who’s
Who in American Education directories.
Sabato’s studies of world religions have taken her on spiritual
pilgrimages throughout Europe, the Middle East, and India. Her first
journey to India was in 1990, when she personally met Mother Teresa and
His Holiness the XIVth Dalai Lama. Her worldwide community service has
led to the co-founding of the Jamtse Tsokpa Foundation Tibetan-American
Friendship Society. The Foundation is dedicated to raising and
distributing aid to suffering exiled Tibetan Refugees. Her work as
co-founder and chair has received recognition by the Dalai Lama, and in
1997 she was invited to meet with His Holiness in His personal residence
in Dharamsala, India.
In her dedication to our professional community, Sabato was a
founding member of the AIGA Kansas City Chapter in the 1980s. In 2008
she was named a Fulbright Scholar on appointment in Morocco.

We’ve all heard the joke about a client saying that their nephew could just make them a logo—but we’re also wary of the idea of certifying designers. I’ll agree that a certification isn’t inherently valuable—you need to have the work to back it up. I believe that AIGA is best positioned to certify designers. But what would that look like?
