Hey There!

My name is Mattie Elkin, and this is my portfolio! On this website, I will showcase my best works through all different mediums. 


A Bit About Me

From a small town in Connecticut, there are not many opportunities to flourish. However, I never let this become an obstacle for me, but rather an opportunity to step outside my comfort zone both location-wise and design-wise. Currently, I am attending the University of Connecticut as a Digital Media and Design major with a concentration in business strategies, with a minor in communication. My goal is to help companies improve communication through digital media experiences.

I have experience in graphic design through adobe suites and procreate. I love seeing the progress I can make over time, and DMD is visual art in which you can see all of your improvement. I am developing my UI/UX skills with Adobe XD, Figma, and programming languages such as HTML and CSS. I have been working with outside brands and companies, along with local businesses to elevate my design skills to help companies communicate their brand effectively. I also have experience in painting and hand-drawing illustrations. Out of all of these skills, my main focus is business strategies. I am developing my digital marketing skills through analytical softwares such as SEMrush, Google Analytics 4, and Google Tag manager.
