My name is Elena. I'm a visual storyteller & creative problem solver.
Let me elaborate.
I tell stories through design, illustration, and creative concepts. I love thinking of ways to communicate to audiences and consumers. I always want to spark change in their brains.
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 writer and an artist.
I worked for Puck Creative Group, which was co-founded by the creator of the show Heroes, Tim Kring, and Emmy-nominated producer and mentor 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. Currently, I am working on my master's degree at DePaul University in public relations & advertising.
Please enjoy my work.
I believe that creativity is about storytelling and evolving.
