Elin Odegaard

Design Specialist

Elin joined the Neuger Communications Group team in 2004 and her design skills and experience have shaped countless projects for a wide variety of clients. Elin also lends her insight to communications audits, branding strategies and other endeavors. She is the undisputed typography expert of the office and will happily interrupt anything she is working on to talk about fonts.

Elin’s passions for strategic thinking and problem solving are well-suited to the communications challenges our clients face every day, enabling her to handle projects from concept to completion. She is currently lending her expertise to our printing company, Engage, managing the prepress department and spearheading several strategic initiatives.

Her previous professional experience includes freelance design and an internship with a Minneapolis design firm. She graduated from Philadelphia University in 2002 with a Bachelor of Science degree in graphic design communication. Elin grew up on a family farm in southern Minnesota, but loved living in Philadelphia during the five years she spent on the East Coast.

Elin lives in Northfield and spends much of her free time volunteering at her church and with the Northfield Arts Guild. After rediscovering her passion for theater through her first Guild show in 2013, she now serves on the theater committee and has appeared in more than 10 productions. If she has any time left at all, you might find her taking a dance class, reading a book or binge-watching crime dramas.

Favorites

Favorite aspect of my job:

I love working with such a talented group of individuals who are all strongly committed to our values, giving our best to every project we tackle. They’re also pretty fun to hang out with.

Favorite road trip or flight destination:

Anywhere I haven’t been yet! My list of places to see is very long, and I’d love to go back to many of the places I’ve already been, but my most frequent port of call is Philadelphia, to visit my best friend and adventure buddy, Kim
