A Tribute to Eli Fogel From Will Madej's Past & Present Coworkers

Created by Elisabeth Klisser

From Will Madej's Past & Present Coworkers

In honor of Eliza Fogel’s courageous battle against cancer, Will Madej’s coworkers from past and present have created this Tribute page.

If you’ve ever worked in a creative field, you know that lousy copy plus good design still equates to a less than ideal outcome, and vice versa. Although approached with significantly distinct tools and guidelines, the two elements must be incredible to create something truly noteworthy. This is tough to accomplish, but as soon as you see it––a marriage of equally compelling words and pictures––there is little you can do but admire its fleeting perfection.

Eli, Will’s incredible other half, was a talented writer with a kind, whimsical soul. She provided the perfect balance to Will’s undeniably chaotic energy—a soothing source of pause, thoughtfulness, and laughter. Will has been my coworker for four years and is unlike anyone I’ve ever met before. It only makes sense that Will’s wife was equally unique, creative, and oddly obsessed with Legos. Over the last four years, she wrote our team thank you notes, joined us for outings when she could, bought me a wonderful secret Santa gift on Will’s behalf, and, most importantly, made our friend and coworker very happy.

Eli’s brilliant knack for word choice and profound storytelling ability complemented Will’s daring and unconventional approach to visuals and life. A love like theirs is hard to come by, but as soon as you see it––a marriage of equally compelling words and pictures––there is little you can do but admire its fleeting perfection.

Will, Lis is right, you and Eli were the perfect match and were so lucky to have each other. Words can’t expressed how extremely sorry I am for your loss. There is nothing more honorable than helping find a cure in her name. Love you, brother! Xoxo Nick

Wil, My sincere condolences to you and your family. This Hebrew Proverb has brought me comfort when I suffer a loss and reminds if the privilege I had to be a part of the experience. Say not in grief ‘he is no more’ but in thankfulness that he was. – Hebrew Proverb
