Elie Andersen runs an independent design practice. She collaborates frequently with Human NYC and XXIX. In 2016, she founded Crit, a collective for artists, writers and designers, and in 2018 she founded Olio, a publication and event series about sense of place derived from food.
Since 2016, she has been the manager of XXXI, a multi-use project space for designers; a producer of Likeminds, a creative conference in the Hudson Valley; and a host of At-elier, a network of studio exchanges for travelling designers.
At the root of her practice is the infrastructre of community: creating systems which commit people to people, and people to place.
