Having been in the design industry for the past 25 years, the things that really excite me & evoke the 'wow' response, are the things that cannot be bought off a shelf. True authenticity - when you can claim that you have something that no-one else on the planet possesses - is a wonderful & powerful thing. I wish to make it available to people when decorating their spaces, with the added opportunity for them to personalise the theme around something that is meaningful to them and will evoke a positive emotional response every time they look at it.

Hi there! I’m Ela.

I love colour. I love drawing.
I love all things design, but my passion is for hand drawn typography.
In a world of ‘sameness’, I like to offer you something unique, something that cannot be
replicated by a computer.
Whether it’s a company logo, a new ad campaign, a menu blackboard, or your wedding
invitation, I can help you create something that is one-of-a-kind and memorable.
I look forward to working with you.

“Ela Purnell is a gifted graphic designer. She was able to listen to what we wanted and develop it further. She was very open-minded, flexible and efficient. As and when feedback was needed, new versions of the logo or any modifications were made quickly. Her creativity and work on the logo was very impressive. Ela produced a stunning design. We highly recommend Ela.

Thank you Ela for doing such a great job on the logo, the sign and the stationery!”
