Elizabeth Carey Smith

Elizabeth Carey Smith has been a designer for 15 years. Her unorthodox trajectory has found her in a multitude of design environments, from New York agencies to Australian studios, big publications to an indie feminist magazine, cultural institutions like Lincoln Center and Australia’s National Gallery of Victoria, and from in-house corporate to startup sustainable fashion.

Elizabeth earned her post-grad in Typeface Design from The Cooper Union and serves as a board member for the Type Directors Club. She runs her own branding studio, The Letter Office, and believes in the power of the authentic message—through letters, words, images, and data. She lives in North Brooklyn with her husband and daughter.
