Don’t just take our word for it
Collaborating with Elena from Studio Elma has been an absolute pleasure and has provided Chayn Italia with a new powerful visual identity and tools. In 2015, Studio Elma was commissioned with creating our logo and visual identity, and we have been in love with the proposed ideas from day one. The logo, 6 colourful stylised figures of women that support each other, fully captured our focus on sisterhood and inclusion whilst being highly memorable and visually pleasing.
We are enthusiastic about our prolonged collaboration with Studio Elma over the years, which resulted in the creation of visual communication templates and tools that strengthen Chayn Italia communication efforts and made our internal collaboration much easier. Further, Studio Elma created a beautiful set of illustrations that capture our vision of empowerment, mutual support, and energy. We couldn't be happier with our collaboration and look forward to a new adventure together.

Elena was recommended and what a good recommendation it was. I needed a website designing plus branding for my new company. I was completely clueless with where to begin or even aware of what I needed. All I knew was I wanted a premium product reflecting my style and values, not an easy concept to convey.
However Elena held my hand throughout the entire process and managed to gently encourage and extract these details from myself resulting in a brand image perfectly matched to my business. She took care of the photographic shoot and directed the entire day.
I am thrilled with the final result and receive loads of compliments on my swanky website, stationary and photos. I would definitely endorse Elena Manfredi Design and will most certainly use again should the need arise. Thanks Elena - it was a real pleasure woking with you!!!

I worked with Elena for over two years to build the brand for my consulting service. She is one of the most gifted and thoughtful artists I have worked with. She brings to her work a high degree of professionalism and was extremely responsive to my requests. More importantly, she consistently worked to get what she created as close to my personal vision as possible. This was extremely challenging and complex because I only had a vague sense of what I was looking for. Her masterful use of meticulous carefully throughout out mood boards and iterative and consultative design helped produce products that far exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend her both as an artist and professional. She will undoubtedly produce work that far exceeds what you have envisioned.

Elena is a highly talented creative and I am fortunate to have collaborated with her on the branding for my new communications agency, Meaningful. She has designed a brand identity for the company which is authentic, powerful, and completely unique.
Meaningful works exclusively with organisations that are a catalyst for positive change and the branding needed to reflect this. The brief was a challenge due the agency’s diverse client base, which includes both corporate sector clients and non-profits. Integrating a rich colour palette and a coming up with a dynamic hero illustration were key elements.
Elena took time to understand the Meaningful business proposition, adopting a methodological and rigorous approach. The finished designs are original and arresting. Elena is the consummate professional – responsive, sensitive and a pleasure to work with. Her work for Meaningful exceeded all expectations.
I worked with Elena on a large and very complicated print design project where both the editorial approach and the deliverables were constantly changing. Throughout the process, Elena proved herself to be very professional, a good communicator, and, most of all, extremely capable, quickly harnessing her extraordinary talent to creative beautiful, impactful design that satisfied our clients' brief.
