Hi, I'm Elissa.

I crave blank paper.

I listen. I hear what people are saying about their ideas, even if they are not sure how to best articulate them.

I can recognize a fantastic idea, even if it is not my own.

I never lose sight of the big picture but I’m a stickler for the details. 

I am a champion of other designers.

I love my job.

I work fast and smart.

Inspiration is everywhere.

I know that any creative problem has a thoughtful, intelligent and beautiful solution. Probably several. 

Creating something from nothing is intoxicating!
