Jenny Yucus is an Associate Professor of Graphic Design at the University of South Florida St. Petersburg. Yucus is a social awareness designer who travels the globe assisting non profit organizations with design work. Jenny visited HopeChest CarePoints with The Table Initiative in November 2018 to capture stories of hope and transformation in Uganda. Yucus also continues to explore women’s issues in Africa; specifically in Uganda and Ethiopia.
In October of 2017 she traveled to Jordan where she conducted research to create a new body of work that dives into the misconceptions of the Middle East. She takes these global experiences and translates them into the classroom where her students partner with local non-profits to meet their design needs and shed a light on various social issues in our community.
