• Hey there, design enthusiasts and creative spirits! I’m Ellen, and you’ve just stumbled upon my little corner of the internet where we geek out about all things design. Whether you’re a seasoned pro or just dipping your toes into the vast ocean of visual creativity, you’re in the right place.

    So, who am I? Well, I’ve been in the design trenches for over a decade now, working on everything from sleek corporate branding to funky indie album covers. I’ve had my fair share of victories, blunders, and “aha!” moments, and I’m here to share it all with you.

    This blog is my way of giving back to the design community that has taught me so much. Here, we’ll dive deep into design principles, explore cutting-edge trends, and unpack the psychology behind why certain visuals just work. But don’t worry – we’ll keep things practical, fun, and BS-free.

    What can you expect? Regular posts breaking down design concepts in plain English, behind-the-scenes peeks at my creative process, honest reviews of design tools and resources, and the occasional rant about Comic Sans (spoiler: it’s not all bad).

    I’m a firm believer that good design isn’t about following rigid rules or chasing perfection. It’s about understanding the basics, then bending them to create something uniquely yours. So while we’ll cover tried-and-true principles, we’ll also explore how to break them effectively.

    Whether you’re here to level up your skills, find inspiration for your next project, or just indulge your curiosity about the visual world around us, I’m thrilled to have you along for the ride.

    So grab your favorite beverage, get comfy, and let’s start decoding design together. Trust me, it’s going to be one colorful journey!
