Liz Seibert grew up outside of Boston and studied Buddhist philosophy and fine art at Stanford University. Prior to attending grad school at Pratt Institute, Liz designed sets for local theater and worked in production at Pixar Animation Studios. She is currently earning her MFA in communication design, where her work explores the effects of digital media on perception and attention. Liz says that “beyond pursuing our personal interests as designers, Pratt’s program encourages us to cultivate a critical voice that speaks to graphic design as a tool of culture and communication. Everything we do is in conversation with where the field is going, and that’s been incredibly valuable.”
