Elena Chaikin


Chicago, IL

I was raised in Chicago, where I reside now. I lived in Los Angeles for a time and needless to say that Hollywood did not work out.

The Windy City called back to me. But I was actually born in Kemerovo, Russia. My wonderful parents brought me to America when I was three years old. 

Art and creativity were a part of my life for as long as I can remember. 

I'm a digital artist, graphic designer, as well as a writer.

I worked for Puck Creative Group, which was co-founded by the creator of the show Heroes, Tim Kring, and Emmy-nominated producer Bob Soderstrom.  

I create visuals for narrative ideas and brand campaigns. 

I worked on campaigns for brands such as Infiniti, Skin Dimensions, Cirque du Soleil, Silver Lake Forward; An Untitled LA River Project; “Table of Hope,” a proposal for Obama Presidential Center; and more.

I have a bachelor's degree in Creative Writing from Columbia College Chicago.  I also have a master's degree from DePaul University in PR & Advertising.

Please enjoy my work.
