Hey there! My name is Elly and I'm a creative thinker living in beautiful Oakland, CA. My strengths lie in illustration and visual design. I've been working in the design industry for over 6 years rotating between in-house design (previous companies include MTV Networks, Telemundo, Liftopia, Thoughtworks Studios) and freelancing. These days you can find me working independently from The Port Workspace with Wear Your Voice Magazine, or teaching design courses at the Berkeley Art Studio. I'm always interested in working with small business owners, and folks contributing positively to the progression of our society. I'm eager to collaborate with other artists, be a voice, and hear other voices. If this sounds like what you're up to, please feel free to say hello and shoot any project ideas my way.
