Steve Elliott | Creative Design Directing Manager at PTI Design

Steven has great presentation, design thinking skills and his ability to brainstorm and to apply cohesive solutions to design challenges are something we may find with a seasoned designer...he was able to rock this out right out of school!

Chris Eschenburg | Vice President, General Manager AOL Autos at AOL

Steven worked on a project for AOL Autos that wowed everyone at the company. He came fully prepared for each and every meeting. So much so, that we felt unprepared in matching his attention to detail. His work was well thought out, had a deep meaning behind why he designed it the way he did, and ultimately, it was beautiful work that was recognized as such by our entire group. He seems to have leapfrogged some of his peers and will be a great asset to whoever hires him.

Ludwin Cruz | CGI Designer at Armstrong White

Steven for lack of a better description lives his design life outside the box. And has the mindset to innovate and improve the box looking in.
Steven is very unique when it comes to idea generation and exceeds in visual communication. I had the Honor of going through several courses with Steven at CCS and as a team member in a couple of projects. He was in most cases the key to several successful design endeavors. As a mentor I am always looking foreword to experiencing more of what he brings into this world.
