IT'S NICE TO MEET YOU.
My name is Ilse Colby and I currently live and work in Carmel, CA. I am grateful to have worked with companies and brands I genuinely believe in and admire and to have learned so much in the process. Over the years, I've learned to ask questions, be responsible for the answers, and use them to fuel good, smart communication design. That's the kind of design I'm most excited to create; visually beautiful, yes of course, but also hard-working and smart.
Other things I get excited about:
My family and friends, the kiddo, travel big and small, ideas, change, innovation, lakes and oceans, taking care of our planet, taking care of each other, animals including but not limited to my dog Trout, my cat Oscar, and my monkey Big Moo, color, children's books, road trips, riding around in our old car, cooking, eating, a perfect sidecar, the quest for the perfect sidecar, wine, beer, good music as well as good bad music, the states of California, Minnesota & Maine, exploring the PNW, going to the mailbox, finding pennies, crafts of all kinds, and anything bread-like. Maybe you also get excited about monkeys and bread, or maybe you just want to work together. Either way, let's talk! You can write me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
