Elliot Ortiz

Creative Lead, Industrial Design

Elliot is Creative Lead and Senior Industrial Designer at Whipsaw. His energetic personality and passion for good design are palpable and welcome on every project. Elliot is an Alias CAD expert so he excels at rapid 3D concept visualization and contributes to many of Whipsaw’s most innovative and iconic designs. Elliot is passionate about creating original, exciting and futuristic products. He also believes in perfect detailing. This well rounded approach, that starts with wide visionary thinking and ends with finite implementable design, clearly shows in his recent work on the Google OnHub wireless router, Nod Labs Backspin game controller, Arris SURFboard networking devices, and every TP-Link product he’s designed.

Before joining Whipsaw in 2011, Elliot worked as a designer at Alchemy Labs, DCA (England), and Samsung. Elliot has won several design awards including an IDEA award for his Perfect Pushup V2 exercise equipment, an iF award for the Cisco/Linksys router, as well as Spark and iF Awards for many TP-Link devices. His work has been featured in multiple design exhibitions. Elliot graduated from the Academy of Art University San Francisco in 2008. He loves mopeds and tinkering on pretty much any machine.
