Ellie's creative with design

From initial ideas, I can work up different options, incorporate feedback and finally produce artwork files.

Tiny Tours app design

Mini adventures for kids
(and fun for adults too!)

Tiny-Tours-Animated-logoIdeal for keeping little ones entertained over the summer, Tiny Tours is a fantastic FREE app to help parents explore Bristol with their children. It presents a range of great places to visit and then provides transport options on how to get there.

I worked in collaboration with the developers Blue Sparrow Apps, who won an award for the prototype which uses Bristol City Council’s open data API. I designed the logo, overall brand, strapline and our fun character Rex! From this I then developed the app design and worked with Blue Sparrow Apps to refine the UI.

A little book with lots of business advice! Designed in collaboration with Rapport Digital.

Starting out with the Little Book of Business Analysis, the book was so popular it has evolved into an entire series.

Demand has outstripped expectations with several editions already requiring a reprint. Hitting it’s target market well, the books are becoming important in cementing Nine Feet Tall’s position as knowledeable, as this review from Brilliant Business Books shows http://www.brilliantbusinessbooks.co.uk/archives/933
