For Elliat Rich the design process is a creative translation between materials and culture, alive to a broader context of power and social value, always calling on the possibilities of the imagination.
Elliat is based in Alice Springs, Central Australia. She works across a broad-spectrum of design for a diverse client base, remotely, locally and nationally. Her practice covers cross-cultural resources, exhibition design, public art and furniture, product development, one-off exhibition and editioned objects.
All projects align with an ethical imperative to increase equality between people and across species, now and into the future.
