Danielle Elliott

i’m danielle, a brand and creative unicorn specializing in authentic storytelling through a lifestyle lens.

Dreams: I love to develop engaging brand experiences that connect each part of the customer journey.

activities: i’ve been a brand marketer, creative team manager, photographer, content creator, filmmaker, producer, small business owner, and oh so much more.

habitat: I’m most at home in nature by the water but I can sometimes be spotted at a local restaurant with a delicious cocktail.




Over the past six years, I’ve been working with a talented and purpose-driven team at online education startup CreativeLive establishing a brand voice and aesthetic, leading the creative team, and heading up brand campaigns. I lead brand positioning and established the mission, vision, value proposition, and brand attributes. We created a brand book and style guide as a foundation to move forward from and expanded the brand expression through voice and tone, photography, and thoughtful design. As the sole brand role in the company, I was the cross-functional thread across teams and executions, concepting and creating new branded content, launching new products, and maintaining the brand’s heartbeat.

MY Roots


I began my career in film production in LA which led me down a path as a producer. After over a decade of producing in post & production from edit houses to agencies, I decided to pursue more creative endeavors which led me to online education startup CreativeLive where I began as a Content Producer, went on to run the creative team and eventually moved forward to lead brand strategy. I'm also lifestyle photographer focused on storytelling through lifestyle imagery.


Stories are a communal currency of humanity.
