Elle Mitchell, CEO

Education:
Nease High School, St. Augustine
Florida State Univeristy, Tallahassee

Background:
Graphic Design, Website Design, Digital & Print Marketing, Business Management, Brand Management, Creative Manager, Marketing Consultant, Advertising Manager, Brand Consultant, Production Manager, Media Specialist, Photographer, Brand Ambassador

Elle enjoys creating. Whether it be building a website, a piece of art, or strumming her guitar. Elle was born and raised in Jacksonville, Florida and takes great pride in her city. She is an American history buff, music lover, and an avid fisher on the First Coast. She loves finding sharks teeth and spending as much time as she can at the beach fishing or skateboarding.

She’s worked with several different companies, on all sides of the spectrum, but her favorite was the one she worked for that almost became the next Instagram and failed to make her a millionaire. Elle worked for a company called Radar, which was the first ‘Instagram” of it’s time, allowing users to post pictures and like other friends pictures, keeping in touch, and allowing users to focus solely on photos. While the company was based out of San Francisco, Elle managed to build an exclusive, massive following in Tallahassee, Jacksonville, Orlando, Miami, and even Atlanta. Her marketing and networking skills led Radar to take off in the Southeast and its fan base grew to over a million users. Sadly, when the owner was asked to sell, he didn’t and that same developer bought Instagram instead a few months later and Radar eventually closed down. This was the start of her career as a digital artist.

Elle created branding for a brewery, designing several craft beers and had a blast doing it while running the brewery. It wasn’t until she saw the response her marketing had on the breweries social media that got her attention that it could be a game changer for any company. It was a honey company out of Hilton Head, South Carolina, that she credits as being one of her favorite logos because it was drawn on a bar napkin. The second one was a wild manta ray logo she created for two friends who sold their belongings, bought a boat, and are now spend their time traveling around the world writing.

Her career highlights include winning best wed designer in Jacksonville’s yearly poll and still keeping her very first client, B&W Marine Construction on. Starting a branding is one thing, but keeping that branding going, evolving, and bringing it to the next level is the whole reason she loves the call of the digital wild.
