After graduating from Tyler School of Art in 2006 with a degree in Graphic Design, she worked for Headcase Design in Philadelphia before taking a position as Senior Designer at Louise Fili Ltd. While working for Louise, she continued developing her freelance career, working for clients such as Tiffany & Co., Chronicle Books, and The New York Times. In September of 2009, after two and a half years of little sleep and a lot of hand-lettering, she left Louise Fili to pursue her freelance career further.

Elle Luna: 100-Day Project on The Great Discontent

There’s this wonderful African proverb, “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.” This year we are bringing more partners in to help spread the word, support the community, and participate; this is truly a group effort. I’m talking with partners about this year’s 100-Day Project, especially museums, because museums are making their walls more permeable and rethinking how and where audiences experience, participate, and grow from the presence of art in their lives. It’s exciting to imagine museums taking on ground-up, community-driven, public art projects.
