About Alicia G.



My name is Alicia Greenwell.

I am a photographer, designer, traveler, story teller, coffee nerd and the owner-operator of Elements & Designs.


I’ve always loved a great story.

At the root of it all, it’s the story, your story that inspires me and my work. I make a point to work with the creative hustlers and the self-starters that continually push to make their dreams a reality. That drive gets me excited to create images and designs that speak for you. I will always take the time to research and learn about you and your project, to create images that align with your goals.

I graduated from the University of Oregon with a degree in Journalism. From that experience, I learned the importance and techniques of not just creating an image, but creating an image with intent and honesty.

Once I graduated from the U of O, in typical Millennial fashion, I worked as a barista for almost eight years. Those early morning shifts gave me the freedom to explore my creative world, travel, and eventually start my own business. To be honest, I sometimes miss barista life and I still like to nerd-out about coffee.

In 2018, I moved to Boulder, Colorado from the Big Island of Hawai’i and I travel between the two states often. Both states are beautiful and I feel lucky to call Hawai’i and Colorado my home.

Thank you for taking the time to explore my website and services. Like most creatives, I’m continually honing my craft and exploring different mediums. So if you have an idea or a concept, I’m more than happy to get a cup of coffee with you and talk about your project or idea.
