IT'S NICE TO MEET YOU.
My name is Ilse Colby and, after 16 years of city living, I currently live and work in Carmel, CA. I've worked with companies and brands I genuinely believe in and admire and I've learned a lot 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 smart.
Other things I get excited about:
My family and friends, my incredible kiddo, ideas, change, innovation, lakes and oceans, taking care of our planet, taking care of each other, travel, 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.
