Anne Burdick operates a quadruple threat practice: she designs, writes,
curates and/or edits both client-based and self-initiated projects out
of the Los Angeles-based Offices of Anne Burdick. From lexicographies
to poetry installations to net.art, Burdick's projects broaden the parameters
of contemporary design. As an outgrowth of her interest in the intersection
of writing and design, she has been involved with the electronic literature
community as the site designer and design editor of the online literary
journal, electronic book review (www.altx.com/ebr),
since the mid- 90s. In 2000, she designed the Fackel Worterbuch: Redensarten,
an unconventional 1,056-page dictionary created with literary scientists
at the Austrian Academy of Sciences, which won "The Most Beautiful
Book in the World"
competition at the 2001 Leipzig book fair. Currently, Burdick is a core
faculty member in the graduate Media Design Program at Art Center College
of Design, and also teaches at the California Institute of the Arts.
