I am a designer, illustrator, and creative director based in Chicago and partnering with brands around the world.

My clients have big goals, diverse challenges and need help breathing life into their brands. That could involve identity systems, websites, collateral design, packaging, creative direction, or illustration – or some combination of them all. But I’m not just another vendor, I’m here to be your creative partner. I’m invested in your long-term success, and we haven’t even met yet.

A few brands I've worked with recently:

"There isn’t a week that goes by without someone complimenting our site, and frankly our growth to date simply wouldn’t have happened without the incredible product Eléna put together."

CHRIS LICATA
FOUNDER OF DISTRICT DERP

"Elena was a creative partner I brought in to two different companies when I had critical projects that relied on strong partner leadership and execution to get the job done."

BETSY MCCANN
VICE PRESIDENT OF PEOPLE OPERATIONS AT EMBROKER

"Elena is wildly creative and skilled at translating the vision of her client into beautiful and impactful work. I would 100% work with her again in the future and hope I get the opportunity to again one day."

KELLY WALLICK
FOUNDER AND CEO OF INDIE MEGABOOTH

"I can't say enough about my experience working with Elena. From start to finish, it was a pleasure. I was blown away by her ideas and concepts around creating my brand. Her designs are so elevated they made me want to live up to them."
