Be yourself. Everyone else is taken.

Tamara Elias

Web Designer, Writer & Content Creator

I have an eclectic career history from identifying national security threats and verifying people's identities to writing restaurant reviews and working on a cruise ship.

How the heck did I end up designing websites?

I have both a creative side and a very analytical side - I realized that web design satisfies both! And, it allows me to do my job from anywhere - a bonus for the traveller in me! In fact, you may see me on a sunny day working on a boat in the Burrard Inlet.


I have worked for and with many industries, in both the public and private sector, from Travel and Retail to Immigration and Trade. I have designed websites for Food Caterers and Beauty Salons to Spiritual Coaches and Accountants. The variety of fields that I have worked with have made me insightful and intuitive to people's varying nuances and needs. 

Interesting Facts:​

  • I used to play the accordion and saxophone

  • KLM Royal Dutch Airlines added an image of me and my husband to the outside design on one of their planes - yes, my face was on a plane!

  • I think peanut butter and dark chocolate is the best combo ever
