Ellen has extensive experience in print and digital media design. As Colourphill’s Senior Designer and Writer, she ensures that our clients’ visual language and written voice are on brand continues throughout the design process. Her intimate familiarity with content and her clean design approach mean that the client’s message is always enhanced, not burdened, by the design.
