Abby Ryan Guido (Bennett) is a communication designer and educator at Tyler School of Art and Architecture, Temple University. Her research examines the process of implementing graphic design principles while building complex systems. These systems include branding, packaging, typographic hierarchies, data visualizations, information graphics (infographics), user experience design, and user interface design. She is also interested in exploring how advances in technology may disrupt the industry and change the landscape of teaching graphic design. 
When not teaching, Guido spends time creating work for Abby Ryan Design, a design studio she founded that focuses on branding, design for the screen, and information design (infographics). Notable clients include Nancy Silverton, Gino Angelini, and Research for Action.
Guido is also one of the founders of PhillyRow, a research collaboration studying the unique aspects of the Philadelphia rowhouse. She also recently started a new podcast, The Design Together Podcast, sharing stories of how design collaboration works in the industry and in the classroom. 
Guido recently started her second term as an Adobe Education Leader, connecting her with over 350 educators across the globe.
