Award-winning graphic design and marketing communications

Elements is an award-winning graphic design and marketing communications agency located in Branford, Connecticut. Elements was incorporated early in 1999 by principal and creative director Amy Graver, with a vision of creativity and collaboration — the name chosen to reflect all the elements that go into successful marketing communications, and the elements of creativity that each staff member brings to the studio.

Since its establishment sixteen years ago, Elements has become a leading member of the design and marketing community. 
This success can be attributed to a business philosophy which combines strategic and creative thinking leading to 
comprehensive solutions for our clients’ marketing goals. As a full-service firm, Elements can develop visual 
communications, manage budgets, write copy, strategize marketing plans, launch websites, plan events, handle public 
relations, execute social media plans, project manage vendors, deadlines and more. We make the process as 
straightforward as possible to the complete satisfaction of our clients.

During an average week, the Elements staff handles projects that range from creating new identity systems, designing product packaging, developing interactive campaigns – and everything in between. Working with the latest technology and 
software, every project begins with the complete understanding of our clients’ strategy and objectives. We then pair 
each team member with the tasks unique to their talents while working collaboratively to deliver a solid final project 
that achieves results for our clients.

Today, Elements operates out of the historic Willis Russell House, originally built in 1820 for Willis Russell, son of Reverend Samuel Russell, founder of Yale University. In 2010, the building was completely restored to its original glory and custom-built to suit our needs.
