Rose DiSanto, principal and founder of DiSanto Design, is an accomplished graphic designer, teacher, and incurable volunteer. She has worked with Fortune 500 companies like Apple Computer, Sheraton Hotels and Reebok but her true passion lies with helping both local and national nonprofit, educational and arts-based organizations spread their message and their work. Organizations like the American Cancer Society, New England Conservatory of Music, Bridge Boston Charter School, Paul Newman’s The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp, and The Steppingstone Foundation to name a few.

Rose is also partner and creative director of The Bucket, a new online magazine that’s mission is to help people lead more fulfilling lives by acknowledging—even embracing—their own mortality.

Away from the office, Rose teaches and lectures at several area universities and volunteers within the Philadelphia school district. She currently sits on the boards of Roots2Rise and AIGA Philadelphia, where she founded the city’s first mentoring program for graphic designers. Currently, Rose is spearheading the committee for Civic + Community Engagement—a new initiative that seeks to engage AIGA’s membership of creative thinkers with the community at large.

And each summer she spends some time as a camp counselor making arts and crafts with kids at The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp.
