Johanna Bohoy designs and paints to complete her life of art.
Upon graduation from RIT (Rochester Institute of Technology), she was chosen a "Mademoiselle Magazine" Guest Editor; then went on to work as a professional designer/illustrator. She has won numerous design awards and has been honored for her environmental work.
Her paintings have been exhibited at Boston City Hall, Clark Art Institute, Phillips Andover, and various galleries, and are in collections across the US, Europe and Asia. Her work was featured in the "Boston Globe" and on the "Boston Neighborhood Network."
She has authored and illustrated a children’s book, been invited to lecture on design at the Smithsonian, judged numerous design shows, and featured in the professional design bibles– "CA" and "Print".
Her award-winning work is in the permanent collection of the Cooper Hewitt Design Museum, NYC and the Amity Arts Foundation.
She lives in an 1860s gatekeeper's cottage in an ocean town with her husband, and works out of their studio (a former duck house) for her companies Bohoy Design and Lightcaught.
Bohoy Design created a 200th anniversary logo and signature for the Peabody Essex Museum which they used as their icon until the development of their new branding and museum expansion.
For this expansion PEM hired Bohoy Design to create a case statement to help raise the $125 million needed.
The final result was a portfolio of colorful, interrelated pieces that represented the vision of the director and what the “new” museum would be.
To market the new museum and also it’s unique Chinese House [YYT], which was brought over from China and reassembled on their newly transformed museum campus, two informational brochures were produced by Bohoy Design.
