An article in SeattleMet about absolutely amazing and talented art director Elena Aryshtaeva who also happen to be my dear friend.
"Russian-born art director Elena Aryshtaeva’s passion for creative work predated the social and visual networks replete with her inspirations today. Before earning degrees in biology from Russian State Agrarian University and in graphic design from the Art Institute of Seattle, she had an affinity for drawing (which is pretty handy when developing mood boards). Believing that life was too short to not take a leap, she ventured to the U.S. on her own. As a freelancer with a career built upon conceptualizing visual ideas, her work registers as style stories indelibly attuned to detail and clarity. "
