We welcome Elisa Foltyn to the Marketing Working Group as Lead Designer.
Elisa is 32 years old from Nuremberg in Germany. At the beginning of her work career she worked as a media designer (online and print) for one of the first German social media platforms.
Later, in 2006, when she started to work at an advertising agency she had her first experiences with Joomla! and fell in love with it. In 2009 she graduated from her studies as a Marketing Communication Specialist and began her career as a self-employe "designbengel".
Elisa was active in the relaunch of the joomla.de website and is well known as an SEBLOD evangelist and speaker at the recent JoomlaDays in Germany and Austria. Currently she is co-writing with David Jardin a (German language) Joomla! book which will be released in 2016.
Thank You Chiara for all the beauty you’ve brought to our community! Chiara joined the Marketing Working Group in 2012 and took on the role as Brand Manager. She created the new brand manual and a lot of different imagery still used within our community today. Chiara is an inspiration for many and designed beautiful images for many Marketing projects and events in the past years. Just to mention a few the design of the booth and flyers, the imagery for 10 Years Together, and many more. We can't remember a time when our campaigns & brand have looked so nice.
Today we regretfully announce the resignation of Chiara Aliotta as Joomla’s Brand Manager. She will be focusing on her business and her family. This is a great loss for us but we can only respect the decision and wish her the best.
We were proud to have you as part of our team and look forward to your future contributions as time allows.Image Credit: Helvécio da Silva
