Change happens when emotions or ideas are understood and shared. We help business, government and cultural organisations to connect powerfully with people’s emotional and functional needs, using design to impact behaviour.
Design: creating positive change in our society
Ellis Jones helps business, government and cultural organisations understand audiences, make places, tell stories, sell products, move people and change the world. How? By recognising and employing the power of design to impact human behaviour.
The visual identity is the ‘clothes that your brand wears’, creating an indelible first impression. We create visual systems that powerfully evoke the essence of your brand through colour, imagery, typography, motion and interaction.
Outstanding campaigns achieve the perfect synthesis of concept and creative: strategic and responsive to audience insights to drive action. An unexpected image, a shock of colour, a turn of phrase, a tone of voice, that demands response, this is our toolbox.
The digital environment is our new normal. Audiences demand coherent, integrated and designed experiences that transcend ‘online’ and ‘offline’ divides. We help organisations and brands to design user experience, platforms and products with authenticity and resonance.
Stories come to life through motion. Ellis Jones designs and directs motion content from TVCs to social content and everything in between. Our work is always strategically grounded, has multiple lives through distribution, and is focused on delivering measurable results.
The tactility of a physical object creates an immediate emotional connection. Humour, shock, desire; we cannot help but respond. From livery to reports, promotions and point of sale to exhibitions or activations, we bring the message and the medium together in beautiful and surprising ways.
Objects and environments
Sometimes you need to push past the page, surpass the screen. We work in the world. We design ‘the object’. Sometimes a physical interface, sometimes it is a totem, sometimes an entire world to explore and share. Branded places and spaces, wayfinding, installations and experiences.
What our clients say
“We have been working with Ellis Jones for the past four months on a very important event campaign. It has been a pleasure working with David and the team – they are highly professional, efficient and no request is ever too small or big. Many thanks for your excellent work and taking our event to the next level.”
