What is your design specialty?
I would say hand lettering. I first started hand lettering on a tablet before turning to inks and different colours. What I love about hand lettering is that it is completely my style; no one else can do the same design that has come from my hand. That uniqueness is incredibly special in our digital age.
What does a day in the life of Ellee look like? Very busy.
I work full-time as an in-house graphic designer and then I freelance on the side. Design is my hobby and my love.
Who are some of your favourite clients you have worked with?
Lush Fresh Handmade Cosmetics has been one of my favourite clients to work with. The brand is incredible, and one I admire. They have great morals and want to do right in the world. Their lush font is hand lettered and they also use black and white a lot (which is love). It was amazing to see my designs in the marketplace in Australia and New Zealand.
Why do you love design?
I have always been a creative person. It is my outlet, how I am wired, and how I express myself. I also love surprising myself with what I can deliver. Describe yourself in five words! Creative, unique, raw, vibrant, fun.
What band is on rotation at your place at the moment?
The Chainsmokers. Who would you most like to join you for a cup of tea? I am actually going to go very local and say (Brisbane-based graphic designer and content creator) Jasmine Dowling, who put hand lettering on the map. I think she is amazing.
