Background

With over two decades of experience in design and art direction for clients ranging from boutique to corporate, I draw on my passion for design to deliver inspired, relevant, refined solutions for diverse and complex client needs in print, packaging and digital arenas.

Through my in-house work and as an independent designer, I’ve collaborated with celebrated artists and photographers, editors and individuals on a multitude of projects including novelty kits and recipe decks, invitations and announcements, cookbooks, retail catalogs, websites and logos.

The artfully arranged page, a cleverly constructed package, a well-conceived and beautifully composed image and the unexpected emotion inspired by a great logo are what inspire me to do the work I do. I hope we can create something that delights.

In addition to my design work, I also create fine art and photography. Please visit my website - www.elizabullock.com - to see samples of both my design and fine art work.

The Grip Project Logo The Grip Project Logo
I designed this logo for an installation artist's project in which she collected what she called "grips". She collected impressions of people's hands in porcelain clay for public installations. Community members would squeeze cylinders of clay which would then be fired and arranged in patterns in public spaces. Then the "grips" would be given back to the community.
