Edith Valle (she/her) is a graphic designer, illustrator and fine artist based in Austin, TX. She studied graphic design at St. Edward’s University where she graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Graphic Design degree. Edith is active in Austin’s local art scene from painting murals across town to organizing workshops and lectures about design and publications for local creatives.
As Art Director at Deeds Not Words, she launched the organization’s first Artist in Residency program with a focus on art and activism. Through this program Edith provides mentorship to young artists and guides them in creating art that centers women and their narratives. As a strong believer in education and the power of telling your own story, Edith launched The Galvanizer, a zine by young people for young people. While Edith provides all creative direction for The Galvanizer and handles the printing and design for each issue, the young members of Deeds student chapters write and create the content. From using personal experience to educate women about the TX Lege to demystifying sex myths, The Galvanizer harnesses the power of young women and allows them to take control of their own stories.
Edith is dedicated to making spaces for young artists to thrive and bring awareness to the arts’ essential role in shifting culture and making change.
How to build the leadership of young people by making policy and civic engagement education accessible through graphic design.
