Hi, I’m Elise. I’m a digital designer & illustrator.

I currently work on the great creative team @ Upwork as an Associate Design Director.

As a digital specialist, my experience is in leading and contributing to design within e-commerce, brand services, design systems, and product teams.

For over a decade I’ve brought brands to life in digital spaces with the latest web trends and accessibility. I work with both local and global brands. I’ve been leading teams in senior roles at agencies, start-up, and in-house settings and love to discuss the under-the-hood of digital production design to anyone with an interest.

Some global brands I’ve had the privilege to design or illustrate for include Nike, Microsoft, Upwork, Spotify, and AutoDesk.

In my downtime I illustrate & design for non-profit organizations to empower under-served communities, youth, and women.

I believe that the most valuable contribution I can make as a designer is the work I put into the world & who it is for. Some non-profit teams I’ve been lucky enough to meet and work with for include Skate Like A Girl, The Vera Project, and Move Redmond.
