Founded in 1999, 21 Skye Design is an award-winning, independent design studio in Prospect, Kentucky. As a graphic designer, Elizabeth feels that her job boils down to listening, comprehending, and problem solving with her clients—the level of comprehension where you lose the extra, the unnecessary, and create simple, good design.
The 21 Skye Design client list features non-profit organizations and fine art projects including: the Louisville Downtown Partnership, South 4th Street Branding, LOOK – Seven editions of the Biennial Gallery Guide and website design for the Louisville independent gallery consortium, the Exhibition Catalog and CV featuring the 60-year career of work by artist Ann Stewart Anderson. Elizabeth also created an extensive, posthumous catalog project for renown, local sculptor Paul Field’s Retrospective Exhibition in conjunction with Louisville Visual Art. Just some of the other prominent Louisville fine artists who she has designed for include: C.J. Pressma, Jacque Parsley, Keith Auerbach, Sarah Havens, Anessa Arehart, and Shayne Hull.
Other clients include independent authors and publishers: Sally Van Winkle Campbell, Mark Davis, Thom Shelby, Paige Valdiserri, Old Stone Press, and Crescent Hill Books.
For-profit clients include businesses of every size and nature: Wiltshire Pantry, Twisted Salon, Goat Rodeo Productions, Craft(s) Gallery & Mercantile, and a nationally-recognized vitamin supplement company SuperNutrition, through L. Douglas Keeney, CMO.
Elizabeth currently volunteers her time for the Speed Art Museum as the Chair of the Board of Governors. She was also an active board member of the Louisville Graphic Design Association, LGDA, for many years and served as President in 2005 and 2009. She served on the steering committee in 2013-2014 to transition the organization, in its’ 25th year, to AIGA Louisville. Elizabeth was a proud St. Baldrick’s participant and head-shaving fundraiser in 2002.
Elizabeth completed her Bachelor of Design at the School of Design and Planning at the University of Colorado in Boulder. She continues to expand her technological skills with continuing education classes as often as she can schedule.
