HEY THERE! MY NAME IS
Elizabeth is a black multidisciplinary creative who believes in the potential for design to do good. She trusts that design underpinned with bold research, careful focus on implications, and an iterative process can bridge gaps and re-imagine futures. Currently, Elizabeth is working towards a BFA in Graphic Design at the University of Florida. In the program, she has had the opportunity to deepen her interests in co-design, disability justice, and equity through both coursework and independent study. She also works as the visual designer for Co-designing Equitable Futures, a project that centers local expertise via lived experience, alongside Maria Rogal, Dr. Dori Griffin, and Dr. Laura Gonzales.
BORN: Broward Country, FL

FAVORITE HEX CODE(S): #9D7EF3
ZODIAC SIGN: Aries
MORNING PERSON OR NIGHT OWL: Mornin'
FAVORITE UFGD STUDIO MEMORY: There's too many :'(. I really loved our first get-together outside of studio time. Spending that first night in studio felt unreal at that point. Eating pizza, sampling Jenny's home cooked soup, and watching some YouTube on our orange couch made studio feel like home.
DESIGN INSPIRATION(S): So many people, but mostly my peers. My friends make some killer stuff.

DESIGN + DISABILITY JUSTICE
This project interrogates the harmful ways non-disabled designers approach creating for disabled communities and explores how they can be better inter- abled collaborators. The outcomes of this project include a few parts: a zine defining Disability Justice and Design Justice’s frameworks, an interview recording one person’s experience and expertise to share, and a resource archive..
I NEED TO START A GARDEN
Heynderickx’s debut, I Need to Start Garden, is a moody, rock-folk album. Each track candidly illustrates the disparate emotions that occur when a person experiences a loss. There are several somber, brash, and intimate tracks with moments of lyrical levity. This re-design is intended to create a visual system that better captures these complexities with delicate illustration and hand-lettering, and collaged bits capturing the lush, hopeful environment she imagines.
Mint is a faculty-supervised, student-run graphic design studio. Beginning in Spring 2020, I worked as a student designer in Mint Design Studio.During Fall 2020, I worked alongside Jenna Agres to co-create a series of collage and poetry workshops for Project YouthBuild students, staff, and alum.
