About me

I’m Elnaz, a Graphic Designer and Illustrator based in Bristol. My design career began a few years ago, although I have always had a passion for creativity and the arts. After gaining a degree in History of Art and French, I decided to pursue this passion further by enrolling at Shillington Graphic Design College in London. It was here that I developed a particular appreciation for conceptual thinking, and found an outlet for my skills in hand drawn illustration. Since graduating from Shillington, I have worked in a variety of roles within the creative industry, both in-house and agency based, on projects spanning print, digital and social platforms. If you would like to learn about how I could help you with your new project, feel free to drop me an email at hello@elnazsoltan.co.uk. I look forward to hearing from you :)
