Daily Inspiration: Meet Elena Kunkel

Today we’d like to introduce you to Elena Kunkel.

Hi Elena, it’s an honor to have you on the platform. Thanks for taking the time to share your story with us – to start maybe you can share some of your backstory with our readers?
My affinity for creating digital experiences that make audiences feel vibrant, connected, inspired, and loved comes from my own desire for the same! My early career includes a string of social media jobs at small to medium-size creative agencies across Santa Monica to Pasadena. I started noticing a pattern: essentially, brands are communities. They are living, breathing organisms that act as an identity, a place, and a part of our consumer’s narrative if we’re doing the job right. I loved that and set out to help more brands feel alive – brands that moved beyond loyalty and into brand love. Brands that tell better stories.

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey have been a fairly smooth road?
Life is all about trading one problem for another, right? You just want better problems! I think my biggest challenge is a bad habit of saying ‘YES’ too often. I’m working on it, but it’s a default response that’s tough to autocorrect. It’s brought me both joy and frustration, and I’m grateful for it all.

Thanks – so what else should our readers know about your work and what you’re currently focused on?
I specialize in cultivating brand love. I create strategies that move people beyond loyalty to a brand but love and connection. I offer services like Brand and Marketing Strategy, Social Media, and Copywriting.

What matters most to you?
Community, Compassion, and Integrity. There’s more responsibility than ever before for brands to offer real value and I believe that when a brand is doing it right, they are a living community contributing to a better place for all of us.
