Elisa Michelet is a French/Californian independent designer based in Tokyo. At the moment, she’s likely hoping for a good glitch to screenshot.

Rooted in graphic design & brand identity her work aims to be informative, effective, and playful. She has a strong interest in the relationship between humans and technology as well as sustainability, food, agriculture & traditions.

Beyond her design practice, she’s an analog photographer, an avid backcountry backpacker, a long-time yogi & seeking ways to be a more sustainable human. In 2022, she launched Yuba.

She has a B.A. in Design Media Arts + a minor in Film & Television from UCLA. She speaks English & French fluently & is learning Japanese as fast as she can. To get in touch regarding a project, email is the move.︎
