Creative Director, NPR and Chair and Co-founder, MFA Interaction Design, School of Visual Arts
We didn't realize just how expansive the term "design" was until we met Liz. As Chair and Co-founder of the MFA in Interaction Design Program at the School of Visual Arts, mentor to the NEA Studio and a member of the advisory board of the Austin Center for Design, she applies design thinking more broadly and productively than most dare. This is, no doubt, how she approaches her role as Creative Director of Digital Media for NPR, working to create a visual and user experience that matches the heights of NPR's content. Sessions with Liz will support Teach for All.
