ABOUT ELYSE MARKS
The memory of my grandfather scribbling on my chalkboard easel, sketching a winter scene, is still as fresh in my mind as when I was a little girl. I was entranced by the ability to create an entire world with a few marks from a piece of chalk. Since that moment, I strive to create that magic in my own way, through the design of engaging spaces.
As a creative director and environmental designer, I am always investigating how to improve and enrich people’s interaction with the surrounding world. Accompanying a keen understanding of technical and digital components, I excel at generating innovative designs and concepts that tell a company’s story.
My design influences stem from fashion, science, and technology. I understand emerging trends in these areas and merge them with a brand’s DNA to create compelling products and experiences that engage the consumer and enhance the physical world. Clients I have worked with include Google, Heineken, T-Mobile, Ebay, Mazda, Toyota, Scion, Lexus, Bombardier, Sony, Universal, and Disney.
