2019 | Résumé

Hello. I’m Elaine Phillips, an artist, problem solver, and graphic designer based in Honolulu, Hawaii. I’m a recent graduate of graphic design from the Academy of Art University, SF. My specialty is crafting vector graphics and visual identity systems for packaging  and branding purposes. I believe in the continual practice of traditional art forms to maintain a strong structured skillset which generate inspirations for my designs.
