Elaine Lopez’s work sets conditions for communication around cultural diversity and inequality. Through her practice, she creates new ways to share, honor and celebrate the stories that have been neglected for too long due to white supremacy, patriarchy and other forms of structural oppression. Lopez creates immersive graphic design experiences that challenge people to question and expand their worldview. This methodology models an alternative way for designers to work toward a more just society. Free.

Lopez is an associate professor of graphic design at Maryland Institute College of Art. She earned her Master of Fine Arts in graphic design from Rhode Island School of Design in 2017. Previously, Lopez worked at 3st Studio under Rick Valicenti, as well as at Prophet, Greater Good Studio, gravitytank, Leo Burnett, Geometry Global and closerlook.
