Brief. Concept. Fire!
Unfortunately, sometimes it looks a little more like: “Brief. Worry. Concept. Stress. Uh, fire?” It’s a shame when the hustle, and the stress of the advertising world stands in the way of creating really great work. Sometimes all your campaign needs is a fresh mind unburdened by the stress of the 37 rounds of revisions that you’ve already been through with the client.

20th Century Fox
This is a microsite I created for the Australian release of the Night at the Museum movie. 20th Century Fox wanted a site that reflected the fun quirky character of the movie, and offered the opportunity to win free tickets and other prizes, and watch clips. This site succeeded in capturing information from a large number of visitors, and driving an unexpectedly large number of visitors to the main movie site. Fox was more than happy with the final product.
Universal Studios Hollywood
I created this site for the Halloween Horror Nights event at Universal Studios Hollywood. I did all the design, and Flash animation based on existing television and print media campaigns.

Commonwealth Bank wanted a new way to encourage consumers to start thinking about security practices for themselves, while promoting a new batch of security products related to the bank's online services. My colleagues and I came up with the idea of the security quiz, which I created and executed in Flash.
Text Pacific PublishingText Pacific Publishing, Australia's leading publisher, contracted me to create their new online corporate image. Before contacting me, they were frustrated with time and money they had exhausted working with two other designers on a new corporate website that wasn't meeting any of their objectives. After clarifying their objectives, I developed a new corporate website that they were excited and proud to move forward with!
I created this microsite for Commonwealth Bank, Australia's largest bank. The bank wanted to take advantage of the financial new year to promote new savings and loans products. They wanted a theme of celebration, hence the confetti and balloons.

As the creative director working for Australia's largest bank, it is a challenge to find designers that I can rely on, and who do work of the caliber I require for such an important client.
Finding Elliott, and working with him on numerous projects for the bank, has saved me so many headaches! He works quickly, comes up with great original ideas, and requires minimal direction from me, which is great! And our client loves his work!
Mike Dennis | Assoc. Creative Director, Ikon
Elliott has the skill, temperament, and ability to take a company’s vision and bring it to life with full functionality on the web.
A better teammate would be hard
to come by.

Elliott is an excellent designer with a great aesthetic sense and very high production standards.
He designed a website for me for the Australian Labor Party which won praises for the cleanness of its design. He also developed flash banner executions for the election campaign, which were highly creative whilst following the existing campaign very well. He is always reliable, genial and calm to work with.
Camilla Cooke | Managing Partner, Catalyst MDC
I am very happy with the work Elliott does on my site.
I find him to be highly qualified, creative, and patient with my lack of technical skills. Elliott is easily reachable for my follow-up questions, as well.
