Who We Are

Ilysia Design is the brainchild of designer, marketer, pop culture aficionado and jewelry devotee Ilysia Belosa. With 15+ years of experience in publishing and brand marketing, Ilysia brings that elusive combination of creativity and strategy to the table, resulting in layered designs and intelligent campaigns that pack the perfect punch.

At Ilysia Design, we pride ourselves on executing projects clearly and cleverly to attain the best end results possible….all with a killer work ethic and an equally killer sense of humor.

Ilysia believes that every project is a full-on collaboration…two heads are better than one, four eyes better than two…you get the drift. She’s got a roster of the industry’s best consultants on speed dial to ensure that each project she takes on gets a 360 degree candid inspection of what potential exists within.

We are fueled by an overt attention to all things grammar-related, a rampant icon usage, and a distinct appreciation for anything sparkly. We are fueled by obvious (yet still hilarious) puns, a healthy appetite for anything related to pop culture, and the rush of turning great brainstorms and schemes into reality. But most importantly, Ilysia Design is fueled by concept, creativity, and caffeine.

What We Do

It’s about far more than excellent design for us —
It’s about creating multi-faceted campaigns that clearly get the message across to end-users.

It’s about analyzing each step of the process to ensure our clients maximize every business opportunity.
It’s about thoroughly enjoying the process and working on the turn of a dime…whenever creativity
and opportunity strike. And finally, it’s about bringing strategic optimism, brand-marketing expertise,
and a passionate sense of style to every project we take on.

Love Notes

  • I wouldn’t have been able to launch Sophie and the City book series and merchandise without my partnership with Ilysia. From our first meeting to the book launch at Barneys, Ilysia was part of every design detail down to the codes on the back of the books. Her particular eye and ability to question design and push for a better layout were exactly what I needed to launch, and her perfectionist ways are now a part of my brand—you see her love of fonts and style on every page.

    Kelly Kasouf, Sophie & The City
  • I truly do not know where my business would be without Ilysia. She is far more than a designer; she is a trusted partner and confidante who knows that the smallest tweak makes the biggest impact. Look at my business cards and notecards and you’ll understand—I am constantly complimented on the unexpected design, sleek layout, printing quality, and the special yellow edge touch…all things recommended and directed by Ilysia. Her taste level is impeccable and she has an unparalleled talent for immediately understanding the necessary voice for a client and then consistently executing excellent design for any size project.  I’d propose marriage if I could… 

    Alex Dickerson, Le Brain
  • Working with Ilysia Design always feels like I am working with a part of my in-house team; her attention to detail is incredible and she is able to help me prioritize and focus on the right projects at the right time. Ilysia puts her heart and soul into every project and I rely on her creative input, editing, and feedback to take the work to the next level. And the best part is, she makes working fun, even on the most dreaded project…her quick wit, warmth, and expertise is a killer combination. 

    Natalie Holst, Holst + Lee
  •  Ilysia brings a positive, organized, and creative point of view to every project she works on. She is collaborative and works well with multiple ideas, and is flexible with changes as needed. She is quick, reliable, and brings a sophisticated quality to all her projects—her expertise comes through quite clearly.  She simply “gets” our aestheticand us… making our creative process a breeze.
