Hello and Welcome! My name is Leslie Belingheri. I started Elle Be Marcom because I love the process of brand discovery and the resulting creative outcomes. Every organization has a unique story to tell. Communicating that story effectively through the development of identity systems, traditional print and digital media is how I can help.
I’m a graduate of Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo’s Graphic Communication department. I began my career working for Heidelberg USA, the premier printing press manufacturer, as a product marketing manager for the world’s first digital printing press. The experience solidified my love of high-quality printed materials. (And, yes, print still lives!)
During the 1990s, I transitioned to the creative agency side, working for CKS Partners, a Silicon Valley firm at the forefront of developing integrated marketing communications. My clients included National Semiconductor, Fujitsu PC, Children’s Health Council, and Healthrider. Later, I gained nonprofit marketing expertise working for Adolescent Counseling Services, the Okizu Foundation and the Buck Institute for Research on Aging.
I launched Elle Be Marcom in 2014 and work with a diverse client base consisting of businesses and nonprofits often in a transformative phase of their brand development. I enjoy immersing myself in a client’s industry with the purpose of understanding their organization as it relates to their competitors and the customers they serve. Helping my clients clearly communicate who they are, what they do and why it matters through creative work is fundamentally my role.
