Ellis van der Does is a Dutch illustrator and designer based in London.

Her style is clear, while using various techniques and popping colours, often combining existing forms to create new stories.

In September 2015 she graduated from the MA Graphic Design Communication course at Chelsea College of Art and Design. Before going to London she studied BA Illustration at HKU University of the Arts Utrecht, from which she graduated (with honours) in 2012. During her time at the HKU she interned with Eskils Junker Film in Stockholm.

In april 2015 she took part in Fred Deakin's experimental educational initiative Collabology in Somerset House. This January she was happy to be back - this time to help mentor a pod of students.

Ellis works on commissioned and personal project. Clients include: Museum of Sound & Vision, Root+Bone Magazine, Overdose.am, UAL Postgraduate Community / Scott King, De Optimist, De Dakhaas, Girls Club Zine, Bite Me, Chanced Arm, Sister Magazine, The Carton and Staatsbosbeheer (Dutch Forest Protection) among others.

Ellis' series 'Zoological Land' will be exhibited at Thuyskamer in Amsterdam from 27th November onwards. Previously she exhibited work in De Branding and Coffee Company, both in Utrecht. And took part in the group shows GIF weekender in Volkshotel and De Invasie van Amsterdam.
