Elin Matilda

Elin Matilda exploded into our inbox full of quirk and character, all wobbly arms and triangle noses and we couldn’t help but smile into the colourful glow of our computer screens. Elin uses exclamation marks and bold caps to express her enthusiasm via email, it was this extra point that solidified for us, that Elin x Maker’s Mgmt was a match made in heaven.

Born in Sweden, but now basking in Sydney Sun, Elin is here to bring joy to all clients wanting someone Australia based who is fun and full of life (and exclamation marks!). She was once a graphic designer, but jumped over to the dark (bright) side because let’s face it, being an illustrator is waaay better… biased? Not us! Working without boundaries across Illustrator and Photoshop and also by hand, her creativity is restricted only by client guidelines that she loves nothing more than to collaborate on.

So here she is, distinctive, yet versatile, fascinated by people and influenced by her Scandinavian roots, Elin will inject your project with an illustrated vitamin boost!

Keen? Email us
