About me
I’m Maria Elges, a German-Argentinian designer based in sunny South-East London, whose practice consists of writing, visual communication and collaborative interventions across different media. With degrees in both design and media management, I’ve developed a holistic design approach, underpinned by international industry experience in publishing, advertising and media production. Independently, I’ve co-founded Midge Press; a ‘lasagne of writing, printing and publishing’ for aspiring designers, researchers and writers - and I’m currently found tutoring Goldsmiths design students on Zoom.
