If you visit Element on any given day, you’ll likely see car windows smudged by dog noses and offices filled with cute cat photos. You may even see some fresh eggs in the fridge. It’s obvious that we’re pet people, so before you can truly know us, you need to familiarize yourself with the furry faces of our pets.
Molly Wentworth is the hub of Element—she’s our receptionist, office DJ, proofreader extraordinaire, and a superstar account assistant. Before she joined the Element team, Molly was a professional portrait photographer at a Green Bay-area studio.
If you’ve called our Neenah office recently, you may have heard a new voice on the other end. That’s because we recently welcomed account coordinator, Kayla Marcoe, to our growing company. Kayla, a recent graduate of UW-Madison, has been learning the ropes of advertising firsthand by working alongside the agency’s administrative, account management, and public relations teams.
We are excited to welcome Amanda Jackson, Element’s newest web developer to the team. With a background in website design and development, Amanda works to improve the function of existing websites and researches new platforms and frameworks to give our clients the best interactive resources available.
We caught up with Amanda to learn about her love for website development, what it takes to learn a new platform, and just how her Neopets are doing!
Creative design and marketing isn’t all we’re good at here at Element. In fact, our employees possess a wealth of talents to share with the world! This month, we’re taking time to highlight some of our employees’ unique talents outside of the workplace.
Element would like to give a big warm welcome to our newest graphic designer, Jenna Garvin! Jenna comes from an extensive design background, most recently working as an account manager for a social media agency in the Fox Valley. Prior to that, she was an in-house designer for Sendik’s Food Market, a Milwaukee-based grocery store chain.
‘Tis the season for third helpings of stuffing, heated political arguments with extended family, and early morning shopping deals that require a healthy dose of endurance and even more caffeine. It’s the most wonderful time of the year! So what will Element employees be doing when the clock strikes twelve on Black Friday?
2016 keeps moving along, and signs of the fall season are everywhere you look, from autumn leaves and pumpkin everything to Halloween costumes and apple picking.
Each month, one of our talented designers creates a new Facebook cover image and answers a few questions for our blog. Our latest Designer Series subject is Element’s Director of Publications, Ann Behling.
Ann has worked at Element longer than the vast majority of us. In fact, she started here in 2003, just a few months before the ad agency switched from River North Communications to Element Creative.
For the month of September, our Designer Series brings us the “leader of the pack,” Mike Tessmer.
Mike is Element’s Creative Director. As an experienced art director, he works closely with the design team and helps conceptualize many of the amazing ideas we bring to life for our clients.
As you’ll learn, Mr. Tessmer is also a car guy. He drives a Prius to work because he needs to get good gas mileage due to a long commute, but he’s a fan of fuel-guzzling machines of all shapes and sizes.
Welcome to the first installment of a new series on the Element blog we’re calling the Element Designer Series. Find out more about Element’s talented graphic artists and illustrators who help create campaigns and bring ideas to life.
Over the next six months, we are giving each member of the art department a special mission: Design an original cover image for the Element Facebook page!
It’s a chance for them to have a little fun using their imaginations to make something that’s completely their own. Then we’ll ask each of them a few questions about their idea and their creative process.
First up, it’s Art Director and Designer, Joel Haase. He combined two recognizable pieces of Element’s agency culture to make a custom illustration that includes photography and tells a story about our mascot and unofficial spokesmoose, Canuck.
Check out Joel’s design for the month of June and find out what he has to say about it …
