Kelli Anderson

Kelli Anderson is an interactive designer who most recently served as Adobe’s first ever artist in residence. She is currently exploring how design can tap into invisible forces at play in the world to make unexpected things happen. This Fall, she will publish This Book is a Planetarium—a collection of functional pop-up contraptions—which includes a tiny paper planetarium, and explains how humble structures can perform extraordinary feats.

Kelli is known for her design, animation, and illustration work for NPR, The New Yorker, Wired, MoMA and The New York Times—as well as her redesign of brands such as Russ & Daughters, Munchery, and momofuku. Popular projects have included a paper record player wedding invitation, a book that becomes a pinhole camera when opened (This Book is a Camera), and Tinybop’s acclaimed Human Body app.
