I'm Elliott.

I'm a DC-based brand designer best known for having two kids that steal my photo backdrops when trying to set up a photoshoot.

I've spent the last 15 years creating beautiful experiences for big brands, non-profits, and names you've not heard of (yet).

I surround myself with the smartest, most talented people and there's always room for one more.

...just keep one eye on your stuff. My kids are still around here somewhere.

Can't wait to hear from you.

I like doing lots of things.

You're still here? Nice. I like to think I specialize in keeping audiences engaged.

Most of my time outside of work is spent sharing my creative interests with my kids. Together we sew, take pictures, build robots, plant flowers, make biscuits, read, read, read, and draw, draw, draw.

I'm a long-distance runner, so I spend a lot of late nights and early mornings training for my next race.

And it takes a village, so I coach Baseball in the Spring and Fall and Run Club in the blazin hot summers.

We stay busy.

And learning from other people.

For the first part of my career, I was an Interactive Designer. It's during that time that I learned the power of digital to tell a story.

Later I transitioned to UX/UI and spent a great deal of time understanding the needs of the people who would use and maintain what I built. This was the formative part of my career that forced me to sweat details.

For the last few years, I’ve been focused on brand strategy and design. I’ve had the privilege of helping startups, non-profits, and established brands understand and articulate their story. I’ve collaborated with strategists, writers, researchers, and creative directors to design experiences that make people wonder and think and feel.
