Bio

Prof. Goetz is currently the the COMD 4900 Internship Course Coordinator for the Communication Design Department. Prior to joining NYCCT’s faculty, Professor Goetz worked in publishing for over 16 years at various consumer publications. At Scientific American as Digital Imaging Manager and as Quality & Technology manager for U.S. News & World Report, she developed digital ad specifications and worked on improving color fidelity across CMYK and RGB workflows. Professor Goetz is a member of the Advertising Production Club (APC), the American Institute of Graphic Arts (AIGA), and the American Print History Association (APHA). Professor Goetz hopes to share with her students the endless fascination of managing color in multiple color spaces–CMYK, RGB, LAB, etc.– in a world where no two individuals see color the same way.
