I'm Elyse Schreiber.
I'm the creative mind behind Freehand Collective.
When it comes to design, I believe in authentic craft, passion, and creating an engaging brand story.
On paper, I am a graphic designer, illustrator, and letterer with experience in marketing and advertising. If I could pick my dream job it would be to travel around the world and work with clients on illustration and lettering projects. I love working with my hands and keeping the novelty of hand-crafted art alive in an era of digital abundance. I also really enjoy meeting new people and submersing myself in a new culture - so it isn't always my priority to be sitting at a desk "designing."
I grew up in a small mountain town of Colorado and, without a doubt, that has shaped my approach to the everyday: I talk to everyone like I know them and I'm inspired by adventure and postcard-worthy views.

PHOTOGRAPHER + PEER
Elyse is such a joy to work with! She has a fresh and clean style and listens to what her clients want. She can take a vision and make it happen. Elyse helped me with some brand updates for my company and exceeded my expectations, and helped me figure out pieces I didn't even know I wanted - until she created them for me! Having worked with her both as her client and partnering together as vendors for events, I would recommend her as an awesome connection for both design and event planning/logistics.
BRIDE + CLIENT
Elyse is a seriously special person. She's so talented and creative - t's inspiring! She not only designed my wedding save-the-dates and invitations, but she also helped me plan everything; from the small details to the bigger things like arranging the bouquets (which turned out beautiful, of course). Not to mention, she kept me sane as the big day approached, whether it be with a bottle of wine or her always-kind words. She's a fantastic designer and an even better friend. Thanks, Elyse!
BUSINESS OWNER + CLIENT
I hired Freehand Collective to design and paint a mural in my retail store. Elyse did a fantastic job. She understood my vision and designed a mural that was exactly the vibe I was hoping to achieve. Her style is unique, fun, and modern. She worked quickly and around my store schedule so as not to disrupt business. I highly recommend her services!
Elyse is the perfect fit for all creative needs. Her process makes everything from concept to final product a breeze. From talent to communication she has it all!
BRIDE + CLIENT
Not only is Elyse wonderful at what she does she's wonderful to work with! I received endless compliments on my custom calligraphy invitations! She also did an original "Welcome" sign for us because we wanted something different from the run of the mill Etsy ones. It was amazing! Everything was perfect, highly recommend!
