Lead Graphic Artist with a background in Fine Art, designing from experience to create wonderful graphical props and dressing from all eras, skilled in the art of forgery. My work has taken me from the 16th Century through the 1920s and 30s up to present day, even visiting heaven and hell in a magical universe along the way.

Working to set up busy graphics departments, and support the designer’s overall vision. Sourcing interns and specialist suppliers, and liaising with on set cast and crew to show how the final graphic will be represented.

Every aspect of my job is a joy: designing, sourcing, making and creating as much in house as we are able, to see the final result slip seamlessly into a scene.

Based in Cambridge, have kit will travel.

The prophecy book is glorious, thank you so much! Ella is inventive, ridiculously versatile, has lots of great ideas and no ego about going in other directions. She’s detail oriented and very smart.  We were incredibly lucky to have her on Good Omens, as it covers 6000 years of history, not to mention Heaven and Hell.
Neil Gaiman – Good Omens, Writer and Show Runner

Ella uses her talents thoughtfully, achieving clients’ briefs without loss of creativity or integrity. She is a treat to work with.
Graham – Hart Mcloud, Director

Ella is an exquisite designer. She listens to exactly what you want then gives you something more beautiful than you could have imagined!
Menna – The House at the End of Hope Street, Author

Ella is the most wonderful graphic designer to work with, she was able to adapt really quickly to the fast changing situation and amazingly keep on top of her considerable workload with confidence, always producing work of high quality even under considerable pressure. Her positive input and attitude was invaluable. Ella often had to produce work with a scant brief and minimal instruction taking initiative when needed whist showing a brilliantly all round grasp of the specialist field in which we were working. I would recommend her professionality and high integrity. She was an indispensable part of our film production team being even willing to drop her ongoing work and lend a hand with all manner of other tasks aiding setting up photo shoots and other practical art department tasks.
Fionn – Capriol Films, Art Director

Ella has been working with us for six months now to help us promote our programmes and transform our website. She has a fantastic eye for colour and images and excellent attention to detail. She is so friendly and straightforward to work with and nothing is too much trouble. The transformation she has brought about in the way we present ourselves is stunning.
Freya – Faculty of Education, Cambridge University, Graduate Manager

You’re just oozing with inspirational encouragement, you know! Thanks for taking the time to show me this, it’s really – I don’t know – kind and energising!
Dan – Student Mentee

Ella worked as an assistant art director on a contemporary drama for ITV. She has proved herself to be most adaptable and talented within this role. Taking on the full responsibilities of producing the graphics. All of which have been delivered to a high standard even under the constrains of a tight budget and schedule. She has relished the challenges of working within this department and is a responsible, humorous and dedicated part of our team. She would be an asset to any art department.
