Ward Goes (August 20, 1990) is an independent designer, researcher and writer, trained in design and cultural anthropology. He is based in Paris and Amsterdam, working on a freelance-basis on commissioned projects while also developing his independent research projects.

 

In his work he focusses on news, public debate and visual culture. His projects call into question how design is part of sustained social and cultural systems, and how it can be used to challenge established visual orders. After gaining work experience at Studio Dumbar and Based Design, he works independently since 2012, while at times tutoring at the Design Academy Eindhoven.
