Elizabeth Goodspeed is an independent, multidisciplinary designer, art director and educator living in Providence and working between New England and the New York tristate area. As a professional designer, she’s a devoted generalist but specializes in idea-driven and historically inspired editorial and identity design. Her clients include Google, HBO, MAC Cosmetics, The NYC Parks Department, Planned Parenthood, REI, Spotify, The Whitney Museum and many other startups and new businesses.

In addition to her commercial work, Goodspeed also writes and gives talks about design history, aesthetic trends, public domain materials and other archive- and ephemera-related topics. She’s interested in the cyclical patterns of visual culture and the impact that everyday, workhorse graphic design has had on the larger creative landscape over time. She’s also a graduate of the Brown|RISD Dual Degree Program and Type@Cooper’s Condensed Program.
