Tid Bits:

Aside from being a graphic designer, I enjoy writing articles and blogging about various graphic design topics. My work, including written and creative, is featured on a variety of websites and has been posted as inspiration for other graphic artists across the world.

Although I grew up all over the US (Illinois, Alaska, Wisconsin, Washington and Arizona), the little town Eagle, Idaho (a suburb of Boise) is where I love to call home. I'm an avid fan of mystery and dystopian novels, will travel far and wide for a good cup of coffee, and received an "Accomplished Under 40" award from the Idaho Business Review in 2014 (age 36). That was pretty cool, and I'm still humbled by the honor.

David Bassiri, Owner, Fresh Off The Hook Seafood Restaurant

I have had the pleasure of working with Elle on different projects from software to food and beverage marketing. She is very creative and has always delivered my raw concepts in refined design. She takes direction well and is open to feedback and numerous changes to please her clients. I consider myself a demanding and at times difficult client and she has been able to deliver exceptional results at competitive rates for over 15 years. I highly recommend her for any marketing project that requires creative concepts, print media, and internet marketing.

Elizabeth Goode, Owner of Goode Ink

Elle is one of my favorite go-to-designers. I have worked with Elle on various logo and website projects and she consistently brings creativity and professionalism to the job. Very creative, quick, on time, on budget and customer focused. Whether or not she is working directly with the client or through a project manager, Elle's first priority is to ensure the client needs are met and they are satisfied with the job. A true professional and wonderful person to work with - I highly recommend Elle Phillips Design.

There are designers and there are creative designers, Elle is one of the best creative designers I have worked with. She has a good alround knowledge of her craft, fantastic ideas and always ready to go the extra mile. If you want a trustworthy, reliable and creative designer, give Ellie a call today.

Jeff Krause, President of RT Foods, Inc.

We have struggled for years with both in-house and outside contractors to get the projects done right and finished on time. We have been working with Elle for over a year and she has performed for us beyond our expectations and we feel very lucky to have found her. Not only is she a brilliant designer but she is conscientious, ethical, responsive, dependable, efficient and most of all cost effective. What more could we ask for?

Dave Lakhani, Author and Owner of Bold Approach, Inc.

I've worked with Elle for more than a decade on dozens of graphic arts and design projects. She has consistently provided amazing results, very creative, effective design, all delivered on time and in budget. I strongly recommend Elle to anyone who is looking for something extra and special in your graphic design or web design. You'll be hard pressed to find better value, consistency, and timeliness than with Elle. She has my highest endorsement. Contact me anytime with questions.

Nate Brookshire, Author and Operations Officer

I highly recommend Elle Phillips. Her expertise in design, publication and editing will give you an edge. She took the time to educate me on the process and kept me to a timeline. This was significant considering my status as a new author. We were so pleased with her work on the book that we asked her to do our website. Please contact me and I can go into great detail on why you should hire Elle Phillips Design for your next project.

This is just a small sample of the work I've done for my clients. If you have a specific graphic design project in mind, don't hesitate to contact me so we can discuss it in detail. I would love to hear from you!

How My Graphic Design Process Works

01 Contact Me

Contact me using the form below, and give me as much detail about your graphic design project as you can. Too much to type? No problem, just leave your contact information and I'll get back to you within 24 hours.

02 Rates & Quotes

I'll be straight-up: I charge $110/hour. Need something more definitive? I'll send you a quote. Upon acceptance, I'll require your billing information and a 50% deposit if it's a one-time project. Once received, I'll get started! Revolving work will be billed on a monthly basis on Net30 terms.

03 Proofs & Review

On most projects I'll send you various concepts (unless discussed otherwise). Proofs are sent to you via email in PDF format. If you'd like to see any changes, let me know! You won't hurt my feelings, and my ultimate goal is to give you a design that you LOVE.

04 Final Files

Once I receive your final approval, I will supply any files required for professional printing or online use. Your final invoice will be sent with payment required within 30 days, and we're done! Wasn't that easy?


Logo Design

A professionally designed logo is often the branding cornerstone of any business. It's deeply personal, creative, eye-catching, and will be the start of the entire look and feel of your company. I LOVE the challenge of designing a logo for a new business, or refreshing the design for an existing one.

Contact me if your business needs a new identity.

Website Design

Face it, if your business doesn't have a website, or it's been more than a few years since its last update, then chances are you need someone who can take care of that for you. Finding a freelancer who can both design AND code well is rare indeed... which is why I'm very happy to be able to offer both services.

All of my websites are built with mobile-responsiveness and SEO integration. I can create websites within the HTML5 Bootstrap Framework, or Wordpress.

Print/Online Marketing

If it can be printed or put online, I can design it! And if by chance you do ask for something I haven't done before, I'm ALWAYS willing to learn something new.

Catalogs, tradeshow booths, e-newsletters, annual reports, product packaging... well, see the list below to get a better idea. But pretty much, I can do it all.


So you want a catalog or website design, but don't have any photos of your products? No problem!

I happen to have an in-house photo studio, including a 360° turntable that allows me to take full rotating images of your products if desired. I'll then clean up your images and supply them to you for use in publications or any other needs you may have.

 Grab some coffee and let's talk service.

As a professional freelance graphic designer, I strive for the very best in customer service and achieving all the goals of my clients.

Elle Phillips is a Freelance Graphic Designer from Boise, Idaho

I may be a little goofy and express my humor at times, but customer service is no joke to me. Making my clients feel comfortable and providing exceptional services to them is #1 in my book. It's what's kept me in business for over 18 years, and keeps new & existing clients contacting me on a regular basis. I love what I do, and I love the people I work for.

I keep time sheets for all projects or jobs. Once completed, or as otherwise agreed between us, I will email your invoice to you with payment due within in 30 days. Payment by check is preferred, however if you wish to pay by credit card I will be happy to accept payments via PayPal, Venmo or Zelle (some fees may apply). Once payment has been received, the completed print-ready files and/or photography become yours, unless otherwise specified.

PLEASE NOTE: In my designs I do not use images or designs that you do not own the rights to. If stock photography needs to be purchased in order to complete a graphic design project, please contact me for details. I always strive to maintain the highest ethical standards and will not knowingly infringe on anyone's copyright.

By retaining my services for the scope of work agreed upon, you acknowledge acceptance of these terms and conditions unless otherwise specified in writing. Should you have any questions at all please don't hesitate to ask me! It is always my goal to meet the specific graphic design, web design and photography needs of my clients. Biscotti, anyone?
