Hello, I’m Elie Andersen. I run an independent graphic design practice in New York City. I collaborate frequently with Pathh.co, Human NYC and XXIX. In 2016, I co-founded Crit, a collective for artists, writers and designers, and in 2018 I co-founded Olio, a publication and event series about sense of place derived from food.

Since 2016, I have been the manager of XXXI, a  storefront space for the design community; a producer of Likeminds, a creative conference in the Hudson Valley; and a host of @elier, a network of studio exchanges for travelling designers.

At the root of my practice is the infrastructre of community: creating systems which commit people to people, and people to place.

I was born in 1993 when the sun was in Aries and the moon was in Cancer. I grew up in Pound Ridge, NY, the third generation of female graphic designers in my family. In 2015 I graduated from RISD with a BFA from RISD’s graphic design department and then got kicked off a farm in Mallorca. Someday, I hope to run for public office.
