About me

 

I moved from Utrecht (The Netherlands) to London in September 2014 and work under the name Ellis D. If you take a trip to 'design wonderland' with me, you'll see popping colours and the use of different techniques. My style is clear and often I combine different forms and figures in order to create a new story. I work on commissioned and personal project. Clients include: Root+Bone Magazine, Overdose.am, UAL Postgraduate Community / Scott King, The Dutch museum of Sound & Vision, De Optimist, Girls Club Zine and Staatsbosbeheer (Dutch Forest Protection) among others. She exhibited work in De Branding and Coffee Company, both in Utrecht. And took part in the group shows GIF weekender in Volkshotel and De Invasie van Amsterdam.

2016

Pod Leader

Modual

Jan 2016 - Jan 2016
  • Modual: is an innovative educational initiative created by Fred Deakin, Professor at University of the Arts London, to equip students with digital, entrepreneurial and collaborative skills that will empower them to thrive in the creative industries after graduation. Over the course of an intensive two week period, students explore their inner creative purpose and develop vital cross-disciplinary collaborative skills: they then create their own 'pop-up design studios' to develop innovative projects that will change the world for the better, with regular mentorship from leading industry experts along the way. At the end of the second week the students present their projects to a live audience of creative industry leaders, peers and investors. Over the course of the two weeks I mentored a pod of fifteen students. The first few days we connected digitally with the help of Fuze and Slack, later on we met physically in Somerset House.
