Roxanne Knapp

Marketing Lead


Roxanne comes to the Institute of Design from the peacebuilding field where she spent several years working to strengthen organizations' and practitioners' capacity to learn from and respond to complex conflict environments. She is passionate about finding smart ways to engage with large-scale, systemic problems, and communicating about complexity in ways that make it easier to grapple with.

As Marketing Chair of BarnRaise 2015, she looks forward to spreading awareness about this unique opportunity and communicating the value of design in tackling major social problems in Chicago communities.

Outside of ID, Roxanne loves painting, pranks, and watching Tom Brady cement his legacy as the greatest quarterback of all time!
