I’m about to launch into the nuts and bolts of the business, but before I do, if you happen to be visiting this page just to find out what our name is all about, you’ll find that story here.
Now, on to the nuts and bolts part….
We’re a small design firm is based in the Midwest, but work with brands from across the United States. We have more than 15 years of design experience and have focused almost exclusively on the craft food and beverage industry since 2018. We’ve created everything from packaging and cans to food and beverage logos, cardboard carriers, case trays, grocery store displays, and marketing materials. We’ve even created outdoor signage, vehicle graphics, and worked alongside architects and contractors to help with new buildings and remodels to enhance the brands they house. This includes indoor and outdoor building graphics, but also bar design, merch displays, and menuing systems.

Meet Jillian – Creative Director & Brand Strategist
Hi! I’m Jillian, owner and designer at Elbongürk.
Before launching Elbongurk, I created textile designs for Pottery Barn, Target, and West Elm. I also spent nine years teaching branding and package design classes in the graphic design program at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point. Now, Elbongürk is my sole focus.
I bring extensive experience, a solid technical background, formal training, and a deep understanding of the underlying processes and principles that drive effective design. Beyond that, I have the practical knowledge necessary to turn my designs into tangible products that meet FDA and TTB regulations, align with printer requirements, and take advantage of the materials and print type to get the most out of any print. I’ve also built strong connections with some of the nation’s/Midwest’s top printers, Belmark, CanSource, Aljan, Blue Label, Bear Graphics, Lagersmith Can Supply Co., Craft Beverage Warehouse, and Hart Print. As a result, I partner with top service providers for every job, ensuring the best outcome for your project.
