I began my career in New York City in the publishing industry after graduating from Syracuse University. I began as a production artist at a weekly publication, Editor & Publisher, where I learned to perfect a keen attention to detail and accuracy. Next, I transitioned into the advertising and marketing industry designing marketing materials for clients such as BASF and The NYS Bar Association. In the mid 90s I moved to Chicago and landed a spot in the marketing department of one of the ‘Big Six’ accounting firms, Arthur Andersen, LLC where I gained valuable marketing and business experience.
I transitioned into website design and was on the ground floor of a startup interactive agency. I learned HTML and designed numerous websites including Experian’s first site. I also created designs for The Alzheimer’s Association, legal giant Mayer Brown, and an e-commerce site for children’s retailer, One Step Ahead.
After four years I said goodbye to the Windy City and moved to San Francisco to work for Publicis, an international advertising agency, as an Interactive Art Director. I worked on campaigns for many brands including HP, Lancome and Whirlpool.
I officially founded Ellen Morse Originals after my family and I returned to my hometown of Buffalo, NY. It was at this point that I put my marketing and design skills to work for businesses and non-profit organizations as an independent contractor. My many years of project management as well as clean, compelling graphic design ensures a seamless end-product that attracts attention and drives results. In the past ten years as an independent contractor, I have built an impressive client list collaborating with many diverse businesses and non-profits.
