My name is Ellen and I specialize in icon and logo design. As I've developed my skills, my passion for flat illustration has grown. I am drawn toward modern art and a minimalist approach. There is a beauty that comes from simplicity and a welcome challenge in designing it. I have a background in branding and presentation design, and continue to be inspired by my community here in the San Francisco Bay Area. I am currently working as a designer for Duarte, Inc. where I tackle the demand for innovative design in a field that is constantly evolving. I dabble with calligraphy and enjoy putting together stellar dinner parties with friends. I have a passion for running, travel as much as I can, and obsess over French Bulldogs. I am a designer, an optimist, an explorer, and a modern woman looking to take on the world one challenge at a time.
As I end one chapter and start another I decided to take a week off and explore Wyoming. It was absolutely beautiful! I finally drove a car again for the first time in over a year. It was surprisingly meditative. Utah, Idaho and Wyoming we're just country roads with hardly anyone else on them. We explored the Grand Teton National Park, Yellowstone, the National Museum of Wildlife Art, and Jackson Hole. It was such a change of pace and scenery compared to the Bay Area. I hope to go back and ski sometime.
Here are some photos from my trip.
