"Ilka is an extraordinary designer and creative thinker. Working with Ilka is a dream — she’s professional, thorough, thoughtful & fun! From brand identity and web design to marketing strategy, she’s an ace. We couldn’t be happier with our website design and the results it has produced."
Ginny Hutchinson - Principal, Zero Point Partners
Lately my illustrations have made their way onto some of my favorite things: Skis, textiles, & anything that has to do with food. Though my work is primarily digital, I often incorporate hand painted elements in my designs.
Web Design & Brand Identity
Zero Point Partners is a leadership consulting firm based in Jackson, Wyoming with clients worldwide. I worked with them to build their brand from scratch, creating a logo, business cards, custom icons, and a website with a custom video header. The result is a cohesive look & feel that reflects the global nature of their business without losing the personality of the partners & their mountain roots.
Honeycomb Strategies is a Colorado-based consulting firm that is a nationwide leader in event sustainability. I worked with them on a full re-brand that included a new name, logo, and website. A passion for the environment and a connectedness within the industry define this sustainability powerhouse.
"When I started working with Ilka on our logo, I had some general ideas, but no clear ones. Ilka listened, listened to our whole story, then crafted a gorgeous logo that represents our new small business perfectly."
-Julia Van Raalte, Finding Self Compassion
Below is a sampling of corporate sustainability reports, newspaper ads, and magazine ads. I have designed print ads featured in Backcountry Magazine, Homestead Magazine, Mountain Outlaw Magazine, JH Skier, JH News & Guide, and Planet JH. I have also created brochures, rack cards, and business cards. I work with clients to help their businesses stand out in a sea of images and am adept at creating files for newsprint, magazines, textiles, and beyond.
My favorite part about my job is the variety of clients I get to work with. I learn something from each one & enjoy immersing myself in each industry. Skis, apparel, resorts, real estate, print publications, ranches, start-ups, you name it. I feel really lucky to create (or have created) material for this rockstar lineup:
