Designer

Ellen is the quiet powerhouse of the design team. A six-year veteran of Skidmore, she landed at the studio fresh out of school and has proven herself an indispensable and versatile part of the creative team. Skilled at everything from layout to typography to illustration, Ellen enjoys distilling complex concepts down to their simplest and clearest form. To Ellen, less is almost always more. To us, more Ellen is always a good thing.

DREAM VACATION

A month-long excursion to Japan to eat all of the food, soak up the culture, and wander the hillsides. Also, a quick ferry ride over to Okunoshima Island.

I’M STILL LEARNING

How to keep my succulents alive.

MY IDEAL MEAL

Beginning: Oolong Tea. Middle: A solid dim sum array with all of my faves (pot-stickers, BBQ pork buns, sticky rice, broccoli) paired with a glass of unsweetened iced tea. End: A bite of chocolate and a cup of coffee, always.

MY KIND OF FUN

Taking an evening stroll through the neighborhood to see how many wild rabbits I can spot.
