Hi, I’m ellen.
I'm a visual storyteller working as the Creative Director of the Washington Post's daily commuter publication, Express.
My goal is to tell our stories in eye-catching and conceptual ways through illustration, graphics and layout on fast-paced deadlines.
I love the challenge of helping a project evolve from a sketch to a final product through detailed art direction.
I’ve worked across platforms, creating print designs, digital magazines, GIFs and videos for social media and information graphics from data sets.
I previously worked for The Memphis Business Journal, Gannett Digital and Indianapolis Monthly magazine.
