Ellen Laux

I see possibility in the ordinary and seek out mission-driven, engaged teams to pour my soul into.

I am a senior design leader with 10+ years creating digital experiences and leading creative teams. I listen, collaborate, synthesize, and share so people see the big picture. I thrive in fast-paced, mission-driven, engaged team environments. I love collaborating across departments to build a holistic design, product, and brand strategy that is thoughtful, consistent, and human.

I bring unique perspectives to teams because of the many hats I’ve worn in my career, most recently director of product design - where I lead an international team of product designers and researchers. Past roles include creative director, art director, product designer, web desinger and developer, brand strategist, content strategist and writer, lead gen marketer, sales development rep, and project manager.

My favorite role, and perhaps the common thread that ties all my work together is: advocate for our customers and employees. My passion is leading teams that unify all touch points along the customer journey - from the way the brand looks and speaks - to how and when we write emails. This requires a pulse on what is important to the customer and creative collaboration with all internal teams to achieve a cohesive, unique brand that speaks to their audience.
