Background

Summary

Lisa Morales-Hellebo is a serial entrepreneur, seasoned product strategist, and creative director with a career that spans 20 years helping companies; from start-ups to F500s (such as Coca-Cola, P&G, Hasbro and Nexxus) maximize conversions via multi-channel, e-commerce product strategy, development, and brand extension. She recently was the Executive Director and Co-Founder of the New York Fashion Tech Lab, which she launched with Springboard Enterprises and the Partnership Fund for NYC. Her previous fashion tech startup, Shopsy, leveraged patent pending, smart data, Remix Technology to allow women to shop online the way they shop offline — browsing and mixing items in context to produce inspiring combinations, executed via proprietary algorithms (aka, contextual search).

Lisa is active in the startup community as an alumna of Springboard Enterprises and TechStars, along with being a member of 85 Broads, the Dell Founders Club, and mentoring at The Founder Institute. She currently serves on the Board of Advisors for SNOBSWAP and Voysee, while mentoring fashion tech startups around the globe. Born in the Bronx, New York, Lisa went to college in Pittsburgh, where she received her BFA with University Honors in Graphic Design from Carnegie Mellon University. She is a life-long lover of all things fashion, is addicted to magazines, new media, technology and travel. While living in Norway with her husband for nearly three years, she freelanced and learned the language, adding fluent Norwegian to her list of accomplishments. Lisa lives in the NYC suburbs with her husband and two sons.

Creative Director/Owner

Good Egg Design, LLC
(5 years)

Intelligent creative direction for print & web.

According to my employers & clients, I have been told that I am a good egg. I am a designer with the ability to see the big picture of marketing strategy while creating beautiful graphics that not only increase brand awareness, but more importantly, increase sales. I promise that every decision is made in the best interest of your company with the bottom line always in mind. I think that you would agree that that is a truly good thing.

Good Egg had clients ranging from Coca-Cola, Nexxus, startup companies, e-commerce companies and a minority wealth creation non-profit. The agency's consistent track record of delivering quality work on time and on budget while significantly increasing the bottom line and introducing new revenue streams in many cases, led to steady word-of-mouth clientele.
