Elaine Li

Elaine is an art director and photographer. She was born and raised in Hong Kong, spent time in Melbourne, Chicago, San Francisco, and is now based in Sydney. Which explains her weird hybrid accent.

So far in her advertising career, she’s planted a beer ad in people’s dreams; raised money for bushfire victims with a burnt Christmas tree; made edible finger lickin’ good nail polish; and created limited edition sneaker trading cards.

Elaine competed in Cannes Young Lions in 2017, representing Hong Kong. Shortly after moving to Sydney, she was shortlisted in B&T 30 under 30, tutored AWARD School, and won Young Lions Australia with her partner Jared. They competed in Cannes and came top 5 worldwide.

With her obsession in photography and social media, she has garnered over 265k followers on Instagram, work with various brands, and do public speaking engagements as a social influencer.

When she’s not making ads or taking photos, she enjoys travelling and binge watching sitcoms.
