Lisa Strausfeld has been a partner in Pentagram's New York office since 2002. Her work lies at the intersection of physical and virtual space: where information structures and physical structures meet, and where the navigation of information and the navigation of buildings join in a single experience. She and her team specialize in digital information projects including the design of large-scale media installations, software prototypes and user interfaces, signage and websites for a broad range of civic, cultural and corporate clients including One Laptop per Child, GE, Litl, Bloomberg, Gallup, The New York Times, M.I.T., Brown University, the Museum of Arts and Design and the Detroit Institute of Arts.
Strausfeld holds four patents relating to user interfaces and intelligent search and retrieval, and in 2006 she was named to the Senior Scientist program at the Gallup Organization. In addition to many awards and honors, Strausfeld was selected as one of Fast Company's "Masters of Design" in 2009 and received the National Design Award in the category of Interaction Design in 2010.
Strausfeld studied art history and computer science at Brown University and earned master's degrees in architecture from Harvard University and in media arts and sciences from M.I.T.
