Hello. I'm Elliott, a designer.

I get excited about cultural trends, technologies, communication — and the ideas that bring them together.

I'm currently a Creative Lead, Designer with the Google Creative Lab in New York.

More interesting than the biography:

• I grew up in Adelaide, Australia
I sleep talk
• I paid for university by washing cars for three years
• I spent two years in London, UK, left to make films and design products
• I make an annual radio show for my (future) children
• I spent two years in Treviso, Italy, without speaking any Italian
• I time-lapsed my lunch for a year
• I think creatives need a width of experience, not just depth — here's a table
• I ride a bike everyday

Elliott's work has been featured in solo and group shows in Rome, Paris, Venice, Lisbon and Melbourne; his illustrations have appeared in Wired Magazine.
