Sela Lewis, graphic designer at The Education Trust, designs a wide range of print and Web projects including (but not limited to) research reports, briefs, brochures, charts, infographics, interactive reports, microsites, and logos. Sela has worked in such varied settings as commercial real estate, law firms, and political campaigns. Her involvement in education activism in high school and summers during college working with children at her neighborhood Boys & Girls Club have shaped Sela’s knowledge about the issues The Education Trust supports. A graduate of Howard University, she holds a bachelor of fine arts in graphic design. For Sela, graphic design is about effectively communicating ideas visually so that good ideas become great — a bit like fine cooking, which calls for quality ingredients, coupled with intuition about flavors, colors, and textures.

Education is this fascinating space that challenges even our best minds to be better or think differently. That is the real superpower. That is a power that should be nourished in everyone, regardless of background.
