Born and raised in the city of Vancouver, Elissa has always been interested in the arts and design. In grade school, she developed a passion to improve others’ homes and decided to pursue a career as a interior designer. Prior to the program, Elissa was often seen doing still life sketches and paintings.
With a background in interior design and as a current visual merchandiser, she wanted to learn more and expand her skills; which has led her to the Digital Graphic Design program at VCC. Inspired by the likes of Antoni Gaudi and Milton Glaser, Elissa’s goal is to become a recognized designer. Never one to be limited, she loves the versatility and creativity that the graphic design world provides. Her favourite saying is “all you need is one good idea”.
