Kelli Anderson is an artist, designer and tinkerer who draws, photographs, cuts, prints, codes, and creates stop-motion videos.


You may have previously seen her work for Tinybop’s acclaimed Human Body app, her paper record player wedding invitation, or the counterfeit NY Times hoax (made as part of activist group, The Yes Men). She is also known for her work for NPR, The New Yorker, Wired, and Martha Rosler/MoMA—as well as branding and redesigns for Russ & Daughters, Munchery, and momofuku.


She furthermore released “This Book Is a Planetarium: And Other Extraordinary Pop-Up Contraptions” a collection of functional pop-up contraptions that elucidate scientific principles in tactile terms (and…yes, the book begins with a tiny paper planetarium).
