Former Director of Communications and co-worker at GenderAvenger
I would work with Elan again in a heartbeat. She is a savvy, skilled designer with a sharp mind for strategy. She offers elegant solutions to complex problems and brings her lightning fast mind, engaging aesthetic, and delightful personality to every project. Elan is a warm, thoughtful, and talented coworker. You couldn't ask for a better addition to your team.
Writer, Editor, Designer, Consultant
Elan recently worked her design and technical wizardry to help me give my website (BostonMamas.com) a long overdue makeover. There are many reasons it was a wonderful partnership: 1. She was completely open to working with my specific elements (e.g., logo I designed) and recommendations (e.g., wireframe). 2. She used her expertise to up the awesome on the layout I proposed. 3. She made a blog platform change that I had been DREADING shockingly seamlessly. 4. She is the kind of designer who takes care of design elements she knows you will love but have just not asked for yet. 5. She is overall a wonderful person. It was a joy to work with Elan on this project and she has my highest recommendation.
Co-Executive Director at SaskBooks
We have hired Elan in a number of roles for the Saskatchewan Publishers Group, from data collation and entry to display and sales to creative design work. Elan is always professional, enthusiastic, and approachable - there's a reason we keep coming back to her!
Recently, we contracted Elan to design two large pop-up banner displays for our non-profit organisation. Elan's work is inspired and visually stunning. She came in exactly on budget and exactly on time.
I highly recommend Elan.
Deputy Editor at BlogHer.com
I've hired Elan for design, editorial and social media management personally and at BlogHer. I keep going back over and over because she's smart, fast, funny and talented. Highly recommend!
Principal at Platform
I've hired Elan several times for branding and graphic design projects. She's the best of the best, with both a progressive design vision and superior execution skills. Great follow-through and customer-centric approach. I highly recommend her.
Education and Engagement Coordinator at Literary Press Group
[Elan] delivered a series of informative and well-organized workshops… that were fundamental in helping us to flesh out our ideas and goals… The world of social media is also somewhat philosophical, and Elan helped us navigate its murky depths with good humour and cheer, not to mention amazing advice… I can't recommend Elan's services enough as a consultant.
Writer, Editor, Podcaster
Elan's understanding of and ability to meet her customer's needs borders on the nearly magical. Working with a vague idea of what I wanted, she guided me gently through a process that allowed us to narrow down my needs in a specific way. Her design transformed my personal blog into one that fits both my content and my style and I couldn't be happier.
President at Slightly Bent Productions, LLC
I have had the pleasure of being Elan's client and employer. Both left me in awe of her ability to excel and motivate, always assist others in making the end product more successful and find minute details that made her quality stand above and beyond.
