Elise Grinstead

I’m a graphic designer who helps corporate marketing departments to communicate their brand messages visually. Unlike my competitors, I develop and steward your brand to maximize your impact, rather than my own.

I started my first business when I was 14 years old where I designed and imported custom soccer balls for Colorado teams. I was an avid soccer player and budding designer who spent my spare time creating designs on my soccer balls with sharpie markers; my dad noticed and encouraged me to get a design manufactured onto the soccer ball itself. My team that season was the pilot project, and using Microsoft Word, the internet, and a questionable wire transfer, a month later 25 balls were delivered via FedEx from Pakistan. Two years and thirty teams later, I had my first real taste of what running a business meant.

It got me hooked on the possibilities from combining what loved with my talents, while meeting needs of those around me. Today, that means I combine:

  • My passion for the power of design to work in the minds and eyes of the viewer, serving to create lasting interest of the subject
  • My love for the written language, communicated well and effectively to engage the intended audience
  • My intrigue to understand the challenges of businesses and to work alongside them to accomplish their goals

My clients see me as their partner and advocate as we set out together to solve their visual messaging challenges and reach their goals. I’m not here to build my own portfolio and work; I’m here to develop your brand and business. Your success is my own.

Drop me a line to discuss how we can partner together.
