About

Born in Oxford, England to a Welsh mum and a Kiwi dad, and raised in Southern California, Eleanor “Elle” Hamilton started as a globe-traveling tot and has become an accomplished and diverse designer. While most of her peers spent their summers in the same zip code where they went to school, Elle spent her summers exploring the picturesque landscapes of New Zealand and the lush, rolling hills of Wales.
An expert at “Branding Diagnostics,” you’ll easily find Elle on a Monday morning in a conference room consulting with a CEO about exactly how to target their market by enhancing the “look and feel” of their marketing materials. Later that day, you’ll most likely find her at a light table configuring the best lay-out possible to really make a new client’s website pop. And circa 3 a.m., no doubt she’ll be in her studio listening to Radiohead and working on original illustrations.
Elle subscribes to the philosophy of Antoine de Saint-Exupery, author of the classic Le Petit Prince (The Little Prince), who said, “Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.” Her commitment to artistic simplicity and portraying a clean, concise and interesting message, has made her work as a designer sought after by companies in all sectors.
