"Phoenix Picasso"

From science leadership academy to being a graphic designer, phoenix hopes to influence the world of education with a number of graphic interpretations that relay the information regarding the corrupt school system.


A west philly native

Phoenix Satterfield is currently a sophomore at Science Leadership Academy. Phoenix works for UrbEd in the position of Graphic Designer. He has studied at Laboratory Charter School throughout elementary and middle school.

Throughout that time, he has done a lot of work with his father (who was a parent representative and the PTO President at the time) for the school's annual bazaars and talent shows. During his first year of high school at Science Leadership Academy, he competed in the Voices of Philadelphia tournament, held by the National Speech and Debate Association, where he received a participation award. He knew he had an interest in graphic design when we decided to join the school's Graphic Design Club, and he knew about his interest in photography when he applied to the school's Digital Video CTE Program. He now pursues both graphic design and photography.

Like his dad said, education is the very first stage, and you need it to get anywhere else in life. He also said that you haven't learned something fully if you never put it to use. Phoenix still claims he has a long way to go and thousands of concepts and lessons to learn before he finish this stage. Working for UrbEd is a great opportunity for him to prove that he has learned what he know by putting it to use through teamwork, and media. Phoenix can also share anything he have to offer from his experience.

Here's Why I Love My Position As: GRAPHIC designer

  • I like how I'm able to create graphics for the team. Graphic Design is something I've always been pursuing, especially logos and icons.

MY role model is jamel shabazz. hERE'S WHY: 

He is an African American author and a fashion/fine art photographer. He is well known for “taking normal people and turning them into icons”. He has picked up his first camera 40 years ago and has written eight monographs. The photos he has taken are from all around New York.
