Lindsay Ballant is art director of The Baffler. Born into the fates of being a Scorpio, an early millennial, and an Orioles fan, she’s an ex-New Yorker and self-identifies her home state of Maryland to be part of The North. Previously, Lindsay applied her love of shapes and colors to Print Magazine, The New York Times Magazine, Newsweek, and Foreign Policy. Academic institutions such as the School of Visual Arts (her alma mater) and (currently) the Maryland Institute College of Art have entrusted her to inculcate undergraduate and graduate design students on an adjunct basis.

She occasionally writes and designs other things, loves her dog and boyfriend, and does not care for late capitalism nor (most) condiments.
