Hello! Welcome to Peachy Art + Design. I am Elise Lewerenz, an American graphic designer living in Newcastle, Australia but working globally.
In October of 2016, my unwavering appetite for design prompted me to start my own business then, rather than waiting until I graduated. And thus a mere 9 months into my degree, I created Peachy Art + Design. Since then I have been fortunate to work with over 30 clients all over the world, from Sweden to Hong Kong to the US, and have loved getting to turn my passion into my career.
I am minimalistic in my design style and perfectionistic in my work ethic. I will work with you to develop your vision from initial concept to final delivery and will keep you in the loop every step of the way. I design in a straightforward manner and believe that there is beauty in simplicity and every communication piece from packaging to a website should function effortlessly. When I'm not creating, you can find me redecorating my house for the umpteenth time, Skyping with my friends and family back in Boise, Idaho or laying on the beach with my nose in a book.
