Elliot Strunk

Elliot Strunk is the founder and creative director of Fifth Letter, a multi-disciplinary, award-winning design studio in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. Since 2005, Fifth Letter has worked with a variety of clients including nonprofits, publishers, universities and emerging businesses.

Elliot's client experience ranges from large companies including Weyerhaeuser, Krispy Kreme, Whirlpool and VF Corporation to educational institutions and nonprofits such as Winston-Salem Industries for the Blind, The University of North Carolina at Greensboro, Wake Forest University, Columbia University and the Southeastern Center of Contemporary Art, to name a few.

In addition to his day job, Elliot has taught graphic design at Salem College and Guilford College, helped establish the Triad North Carolina chapter of AIGA, and dabbles in a few entrepreneurial ventures. Always curious, he enjoys exploring new technologies, meeting people, kickball, dodgeball and exploiting his knowledge of trivial facts in barroom competitions.

He graduated a long time ago from Ohio University, cum laude, with a BFA in Graphic Design.
