Jessica Destoppeleire is the most recent addition to Elixir and we couldn’t be happier. It will take us some time to say her last name properly and to really know her, but here’s what we’ve gleaned so far:
We have reason to believe she is as good at coming up with big picture ideas as she is finessing details. No surprise, she’s got exceptional design skills and can make the computer do whatever she wants it to. The bigger surprise is that she can draw beautifully. While this isn’t a requirement to being an awesome designer, it’s rather rare and we value it. On a more personal note, she gets around San Francisco on a single speed, spends several evenings a week bouldering, and looks incredibly good in red lipstick.
In the short time that she’s been with us, she’s already jumped on a project branding pig carcasses, design for an architecture firm’s website, and has put her impressive illustration skills to use for a client in the education reform sector.
