Elise Metzger is a Chicago-based designer, stylist and creative consultant. While her love of photography is life-long, she began her formal design education as an architecture and design student, and her career doing retail displays and museum exhibit design.

She has created large scale retail environments for Anthropologie, helped revitalize and develop brands for SC Johnson, designed trade show booths and branded environments for Brainlab, styled photo shoots for McDonalds and Unison, and launched a multi-city, design driven supper club. Her work has been featured in media outlets such as Martha Stewart and Style Me Pretty, and written about in Travel and Leisure, and Luxe Interiors and Design. There is nothing she loves more than seeing a project through from strategy to creative execution.

Elise holds a BFA in Architecture and Design from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst and a Masters of Design from Illinois Institute of Technology.
