Anna Kealey

Anna Kealey holds a BA in Visual Communications from the Institute of Art Design and Technology in Dublin, Ireland. She was awarded the Design History Society prize for her undergraduate thesis Innovation and Exploitation: a Critique of American Apparel.

Her current research centers on how design, particularly pastoral imagery on food packaging, is used to propagate myths about food production. She was profiled on the industrial design blog Core77 and spoke about her research the International Conference for Designing Food and Designing For Food (ICDFDFF) at London’s Metropolitan University in June 2012.

In 2011, Anna worked at AIGA, the professional association for design, assisting the organization of Pivot: AIGA National Design Conference. She currently works as a research assistant for design writer Steven Heller and at the creative recruitment firm Wert & Company, researching potential candidates for a broad range of international clients.
