Rose is a designer, teacher, and incurable volunteer. She is principal of DiSanto Design, a design firm based in Philadelphia whose client roster includes Apple Computer and Reebok, as well as nonprofit and arts-based clients like New England Conservatory and The Steppingstone Foundation. Rose currently teaches graphic design at Philadelphia University and does volunteer work in the Philadelphia public schools. Through AIGA Philly, Rose founded and now directs the chapter’s first mentoring program, pairing seasoned professionals with emerging designers. And since 1989, Rose has volunteered as a summer camp counselor with Paul Newman’s The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp in Connecticut. Rose holds a degree in Visual Communications from the University of Delaware and a Masters in Education from Harvard University. She resides in Philadelphia with her husband, Stephen—except for a week in July, when she’s usually covered with paint in the arts and crafts studio at Camp.
