Desert Elements Logo Desert Elements + Consumer51

Desert Elements has been a reliable, established business since 2001. In 2024, we're excited to offer you even more than before.



When were you acquired by Consumer51?

Desert Elements was acquired in July of 2019.

Why was the company acquired?

Desert Elements’ clients are in need of services that an expanded team can provide. Consumer51 and Desert Elements have a similar approach to design, marketing, and customer service. And with Consumer51’s global team and award winning designs, we’re better able to grow your business!

Do you still offer the same services?

Yes, as well as new services including:

  • Inbound marketing with HubSpot
  • Competitively priced hosting packages, domains and email
  • A wider range of custom software solutions
  • Expert user experience research
  • Beautiful contemporary designs from our expanded creative team
  • Marketing solutions for all sized companies — from startups to Fortune 500

I still working with the same team?

If you're working on a project or have a retainer with us, you’ll keep working with the same project manager.  The only difference is that you now have access to even more talent, extended business hours with our distributed team, and a wider range of services!

Are you still located in the same offices?

We have moved! Our Old Santa Fe Trail office is no longer needed, as we now operate from Consumer51’s offices in Santa Fe and Albuquerque. Please let us know if you would like to arrange a time to stop by.

Are you still servicing local, New Mexico companies?

Yes! Desert Elements is proud of its long history in the Land of Enchantment. With a bigger team and broader reach we can better serve our local clients. In addition, we’ll also be bringing more business back to our home state from other parts of the country and world.

Can I arrange a time to speak with the management team of Consumer51?

Absolutely! Our CEO Arijit Banerjee is eager to meet with you. Please just reach out and let us know a good time to arrange a phone or video call.

"We suspected that Desert Elements could build us a web site that would look much better than what we could build ourselves. And what they built us is a first class, visually stunning beauty. We were also incredibly pleased to find out that they could integrate some of the high-end, technical site features we wanted far better than our own in-house programmers could! The whole experience was timely, professional, and impressive from start to finish.  We love Desert Elements and often recommend them to our most important clients."
~ Oban Lambie, President Brownrice Internet, Inc.

"I've worked with Desert Elements since shortly after my first restaurant Vinaigrette opened in 2008 and it has been an evolving partnership and creative team effort from the very beginning. Cheryl and Molly know how to interpret brand purpose and business needs into strong, original visual content and narrative. They understand both the creative and the practical ramifications of their work and manage both with finesse. I’m always delighted by what they come up with in response to project prompts—whether its web, print or marketing strategy. Often they manage to capture not just what I said I wanted, but what I actually wanted and didn't quite express—that extra truth between the words. No easy task! Plus, they are fun to work with and have great senses of humor!"

~ Erin Wade, Owner / Vinaigrette, Modern General

"Wow. It's one word, a simple word, but it is THE word that describes the quality of product and service you get working with Desert Elements. And, on top of that, they were absolutely easy and fun to work with from concept to deliverable."

~ Belinda Padilla, Program Manager, Venture Acceleration Fund NNM Connect

"Since 2003, I’ve relied exclusively on Desert Elements to design and update EricOKeefe.com. It’s my best calling card and has never failed to impress."

~ Eric O’Keefe, Author Editor Journalist

"Hiring Desert Elements to handle the complete redesign of our two websites was the most important and best decision we made in going into what felt like a challenging project. The project, however, ended up being fun and surprisingly smooth. I could not have asked for better communication, project management or design implementation. Since our two sites have launched, our membership numbers have skyrocketed and our ticket sales have increased significantly. I highly and without reservation recommend Desert Elements, a local, creative, professional and exceptional company."

~ Emily Crawford, Director of Marketing, Lensic Performing Arts Center / Tickets Santa Fe

"The staff at Desert Elements Design has exceeded my expectations and continues to deliver in design, functionality and assistance. Everyone on staff is not only responsive and helpful, but continuously goes above and beyond with suggestions and ideas. The Santa Fe County website has had multiple upgrades and Desert Elements has made it an enjoyable process every time. Desert Elements is an absolute pleasure to work with and the end result is always amazing, they are truly stellar in every aspect. I honestly can't say enough wonderful things about this company!"

~ Kristine Mihelcic, Public Information / Media Production, Santa Fe County

"Desert Elements routinely exceeds our expectations, and it does so on time and under budget. Highly recommend their multi-talented team."

~ Eddie Lee Rider Jr., Publisher, The Land Report
