Elke is a multidisciplinary designer and an ally for brands and users.


Elke has built creative things for more than fifteen years, bringing digital and print communication to life for a wide range of wonderful clients in a variety of industries. Today, her focus is on corporate & digital branding, which she implements in various projects.

β€žFor several years I worked in a design studio as a senior visual communication designer, mainly for local clients and small to medium sized companies in the organic sector.

Together we brought ideas to live and developed visual languages: brand identities and full brand implementation, graphics for retail or event spaces, exhibition graphics, packaging, publications, illustrations, infographics, user interfaces.β€œ

Since 2022, I am happy to be a part of PHINEO β€” a unique non-profit organisation. A community of professionals who want to make a difference in civil society through their actions, with truly measurable impact.

My motivation as a designer is as simple as Phineo's attitude: I want to help brands bring clarity, value and differentiation through design to all areas of brand communication and application, with measurable impact.

And I firmly believe that beautiful design also needs users' approval and best experiences to create successful brands and products.

Experience and Goals


I like to take on new challenges, develop my skills and design-knowledge.

Now I am curious about Digital System Design and Innovation Design Management.

I am solution-oriented. Strong in design. Always an advocate for the user and for the brand. And a real teamplayer.
