Hello, I'm Chris Ellinas and I love solving business problems, through design thinking!
I believe in good people. Good work is secondary.
I had the opportunity to work with engaging clients and brands around the world. My main client right now is Netflix, Disney+ and Amazon Prime where I design logos for movies and tv series (You have probably seen some of them but I can't tell you which they are...yet🤫).
I have worked with some other large companies in the past and as employ in advertising through Ogilvy.
I'm also into video production for a local tv-series and most importantly online education which will be my main focus this year. I'm also designating my free time to help and teach creatives about the business part of the design industry and people that are looking to jump to the next level.
(You can find more free content on my youtube channel and podcast, link ⬇)
I like to focus my time on a small selected number of Mentees per year, so I'm asking for three main things from you before you apply:
🚀 Active engagement and initiative in communication.
🌱 Be open-minded to new ideas and constructive feedback.
🎯 Follow through and be ready to put in the hard work.
Some of the topics we could talk more about are:
• Career launching (design, freelance, employee, youtube, podcast).
• Career growth & coaching.
• Finding your next client.
• How much to charge?
• The business part of the creative process.
• Process refinement.
• Portfolio/CV Feedback.
• Land your dream job.
• Create a tailored study plan or career strategy.
• Start your own Business.
• How to run your business.
• How to film yourself.
• Designing or Video editing issues.
• Personal or Business issues.
• Finding your life/career purpose.
• Open talk... (about your favorite Netflix tv-series maybe?)
Feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.
And get ready to lunch in T minus 10...9... 🚀

My mentorship with Chris was one of the best things I did this year. Not only did he give very helpful, practical, and precise advice as I improved my graphic design portfolio during a career shift, but he was very kind and supportive, helping me return to a healthy mindset at a time when I was feeling discouraged. I have a tendency to plan way ahead, overthink, and get overwhelmed by my own goals, but he navigated me through organizing those goals into more manageable, actionable, bite-sized chunks. I'm very grateful for the time I spent working with him!

Chris is the mentor dreams are made of. He provides thoughtful yet critical feedback, while being patient, and encouraging at the same time. He is also timely with his responses and immensely professional. We achieved all the design deliverables we set out to create and I'm so proud of each. Thank you for your time and effort and motivation. You will be missed, Chris!

Chris was patient and supportive, providing me with valuable insights and resources to improve my skills in Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign. He helped me to develop my skills in typography, layout design, and color theory, and provided constructive feedback on my designs. Chris was always available to answer my questions and provided me with advice on freelancing, including how to start, pricing strategies, and project management.
