I'm Ellen, a designer obsessed with solving problems and finding unconventional solutions. I take delight in the unexpected. My design approach comes from an intuitive empathy and an insatiable curiosity for the world around me and the people that inhabit it. In my work, I focus on how material, color, and proportion combine to tell a story that invites the user to participate. I love exploring creative use of materials and unusual conceptual combinations. In my free time, I cycle between hobbies like language learning, paleontology, and being outdoors.
