About Kelli Anderson
Kelli Anderson uses design magic to connect people with the depth and possibility of the world.
Pushing the bounds of publishing, she created This Book is a Camera (MoMA)—which transforms into a working camera—and This Book is a Planetarium (Chronicle)—which houses paper devices (including a planetarium) and has sold more than 100,000 copies. Other projects include a viral paper record player and—with The Yes Men—a utopian counterfeited New York Times, which won the Ars Electronica Prix. Doctors have used the award-winning Tinybop Human Body app to communicate treatment in childrenʼs hospitals and to Indigenous Australians.
Clients include NPR, The New Yorker, the Guggenheim, MoMA, Apple, and The New York Times. Anderson has redesigned brands such as Russ & Daughters and Momofuku. She has exhibited internationally; her independent projects have been supported by the Japan Foundation, Exploratorium, Adobe, Center for Book Arts, MASS MoCA, ITP, and Letterform Archive.
