Elly Ross is a graphic designer, writer and art director based in London. As a graphic designer, she specialises in typographic and print design. She has a particular interest in book arts, historic influenced design, and analogue experimentations with type.
During her degree in Graphic and Media Design at London College of Communication, Elly nurtured a passion for design for film, collaborating frequently with students in the screen school to make props for their films, as well as working externally in film art departments. This has deepened her interest in vintage aesthetics.
Elly’s thesis on the subject of queerbaiting in the BBC’s Sherlock was selected to take part in her degree show “Word Matters” research symposium, in which she delivered a presentation on her writing. Her interest in this subject has culminated in the self publication of her thesis, and plans to develop a critical writing platform of the subject of representation in media.
Elly has experience as a graphic designer on a variety of projects, a writer for a range of publications, and an art department assistant on a diverse range of short films. She is always looking to collaborate and get involved in new projects.
