Hi, I'm Elise!
I am an eager and passionate Graphic Designer. I graduated with a B.F.A in Graphic Design from Grand Valley State University in April of 2019, but began my design career while still a student. I started taking on freelance clients in 2015 and accepted my first official Graphic Design position in 2017.
I have experience working on in-house creative teams at BIXIB Pet Food, Cannonsburg Ski Area and Founders Brewing Company. I also have experience working in agencies such as 21 Handshake and The Image Shoppe. I am currently an in-house Graphic Designer at Cultivate Premium Corporate Gifts. My previous experience includes being an in-house Graphic Designer for BIXBI Pet Food, where I did all of their consumer packaging design alongside marketing and sales requests. I also have experience working for the in-house creative team at Founders Brewing Company, as well as working and interning for a variety of marketing and design agencies, including 21 Handshake and The Image Shoppe. My wide range of in-house and in-agency experience has given me the tools and knowledge to excel in various positions.
In addition to Graphic Design, I have a background and interest in illustration, hand lettering, and photography. One of my design strengths is incorporating my own unique illustrations and graphics into my work. I am also experienced with shooting and editing photos for clients.
When I am not designing I am an avid backpacker and trail runner. I also have a sweet puppy named Indie and 2 cats, Salvador & Frida.
Thank you for taking a look at some of my work!
