AN ABSOLUTE JOY TO WORK WITH
I have had the pleasure of working with Elena on a few projects. A friend referred Elena after a successful brand launch with her, and I can now corroborate that she is talented, professional, timely, and an absolute joy to work with. Elena has helped me to create a brand identity for a mission-driven wellness concept, and she launched my website. I have in turn recommended her for a product launch for a brand I'm advising, and the founder is thrilled with her work on that as well. So, if you like talented, kind people who listen well and actually deliver what they say they will, then go with Elena! You won't regret it!

COLLABORATIVE, THOUGHTFUL AND FRESH
Over the course of our time working with Eléna, she has become more than just a designer we work with on occasion, her role in District Derp is more akin to that of a lead designer. We originally came to Eléna for help designing our website and it was during that process that we got to see what a collaborative, thoughtful, and fresh designer she is. 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. Her creativity and receptiveness to our ideas throughout the development process make her a joy to work with, and have pulled us back to her time and time again. We highly recommend working with her if you get the chance to do so.

TRANSFORMING OUR ORGANIZATION
Elena developed our new logo and brand style guide. She was creative and fresh. Her ideas were original and reflected that she listened well and worked to translate ideas into very appealing options. This new brand will transform our organization and allow us to share our mission more effectively! We are very pleased with her work and the energy, professionalism, and passion she brought to the project.
Jenna Hania, Director of Development & Communications at New Moms
Elena has been great to work with from start to finish - even the interview process with her was smooth. She's proactive and able to anticipate the needs of her clients which helps save time and energy in working with her. She's great at collaborating with multiple people on a team and is able to fulfill a variety of different needs all while staying true to the overall design vision and direction. Elena is also very skilled at taking and implementing feedback in an efficient and professional manner. Her version control is very organized and it was always easy to find the latest files and clear which revisions were the most recent. In addition, she 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.

ABSOLUTELY TOP-NOTCH DESIGNER
Elena has been a pleasure to work with and an absolutely top-notch designer. We came to her with a very particular style request, and she knocked it out of the park, taking our vague ideas for a style and crafting them into a look that truly felt unique and memorable. I'm extremely happy with the work she produced and look forward to working with her again in the future.

THE PERFECT PARTNER
Eléna was the perfect partner to lead us through a rebrand as we merged two companies into one. Branding seemed daunting but once we started working with Elena our whole team actually HAD FUN with the whole process. Elena made sure everyone's voice and ideas were heard, and did an amazing job helping us capture the story and soul behind our business. Simply put, we understand our business better after working with Eléna and are growing because of it. We are so happy with the work she did for us and can confidently recommend her to anyone looking to level up their businesses' branding!

STRONG PARTNER LEADERSHIP
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. In both case, she was exemplary in translating our needs into creative output, translating to my teams who aren't as well-versed with graphic design concepts and terminology. Elena found ways to speak to our audience in ways that made our brands relatable, fun, and interesting- while also connecting and focusing on differentiation. She is a proactive communicator that is enthusiastic and super organized. I would highly recommend working with Elena for brand elevation - and I can't wait to get the opportunity to work with her again.

DESIGNS SO ELEVATED THEY MADE ME WANT TO LIVE UP TO THEM
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. From a simple meeting, she was able to hone in on who I was and wanted to portray. Her designs are so elevated they made me want to live up to them.

KNOCKED IT OUT OF THE PARK
As a branding agency, our website redesign was an incredibly personal project for us. That's why we wanted to collaborate with a talented designer who would bring our very specific vision to life in beautiful, delightful ways. Needless to say, Elena knocked it out of the park and was game for every weird and wild idea we had. 10/10 would work with her again.

ONE OF THE BEST-LOOKING SPREADS IN THE MAGAZINE
I commissioned Eléna to put together some illustrations for my magazine. She was flexible and timely in her work, but more importantly, the illustrations she created were a perfect aesthetic match for the magazine, and the article they appear in is one of the best-looking spreads in the magazine. I recommend her highly.

SIGNIFICANT VALUE ADD
Eléna provides creative and thoughtful designs and visual analysis. She is reliably cheerful and diligent, and I appreciate that she is always willing to carefully process and incorporate feedback. She made several clutch observations during our app design process that brought a significant value-add to our product.
