Ella - Brand Designer

Ella Small Agency

What's your favourite aspect about working at Shape?

The Team is super friendly and is more like a family, we are relaxed but get stuff done. Everyone loves what they do and that really shows, we're passionate and always pushing the boundaries. There’s a huge range of projects we work on at Shape, from Fashion to Healthcare, to Marketing to Hospitality, no day is the same.

Where do you find inspiration?

I’m constantly finding new projects and exploring the Agency/Studio that created them. There are tonnes of super cool sites out there that aid in projects, Awwwards, Godly, Behance, Pinterest, Instagram, and Dribbble - just to name a few. Even in everyday life I’m always subconsciously looking - I go to a restaurant with a funky menu? I’ll do some investigating and find the agency to view the full project.

Have you always wanted to be a designer?

I actually wanted to be a sniffer dog handler when I was younger, but maybe that was just a phase?! I’ve always been creative and loved 'arts and crafts' when I was really small. But I knew from the age of 17 that I wanted to work in the design industry after undertaking an Art foundation course and was keen to get into the working life thereafter, so I studied full-time at Shillington back in 2020 - Now I’m here!

What's your favorite project you've worked on at Shape?

Wow, that's a toughie. There have been so many exciting projects I've worked on - iET is up there with one of my faves as the client allowed us to push boundaries with the overall identity, creating unique 3D characters paired with a display serif, it was a great outcome. I'm also currently working on some super cool projects at the minute that may take the top spot once launched 🤫.

I've heard you love dogs?

Yes, a bit too much. I've got an 8-year-old black lab that is absolutely bonkers and eats anything she can find (She also needs to lose weight, no surprise there).

Why should clients choose to work with Shape?

We are a team of 16 that genuinely love and enjoy what we do, from start to finish. We get excited about your projects, however big or small and are always here to help you throughout your whole journey with us. We also make pretty damn cool projects, did I mention that?
