Ellee Hc; the all-round creative who took a gap year after graduating high school, founded a worldwide digital magazine and built it up from scratch to only then land herself a freelance design gig at LUSH Cosmetics and an internship at the biggest selling magazine in the world. All the while keeping her freelance design business going since 2008.
2 great years, 8 jam-packed issues, 77+ interviews with the talent of the world (e.g. 360, Marcia Hines, Short Stack, Taylor Henderson, Tony Mott), over 2000 Instagram posts and countless cherished memories have all lead to this…
In May 2016, Ellee declared it was time for YOLO Mag to go on a tropical holiday while she explores her creative passions. None the less, this lead the young raw-talented Brisbane girl to jet set to Sydney for 3 months for the experience of a lifetime.
Before she even landed, Ellee had scored herself a freelance gig with LUSH Cosmetics as one half of their graphic design team. Seeing her work not only in the store’s product signage, but large, bold and impactful in their big store windows for the Fresh, Wash on the Wild Side, Father’s Day and Stop Exfoliate and Listen campaigns was definitely a massive highlight of her very lush life.
The next SYD destination found Ellee walking the halls of the Bauer Media Group building where she interned at Cosmopolitan Magazine, working in with the Digital Team for Cosmopolitan.com.au and the Art Department. Having run and created a digital magazine for 2 years, this was an eye-opener for Ellee, but at the very same time, she felt abundantly at home.
With 3 months experience in the Big Apple of Australia, Ellee booked a flight back home to Brisvegas with a journey she will never forget, contacts you couldn’t buy and one heck of a killer portfolio and resume.
Hence, this is where Ellee Designs flourishes again… life after YOLO Magazine, LUSH Cosmetics and Cosmopolitan Magazine. The place to hire an unique, young-minded, talented graphic designer and photographer, the place to order personalised typography prints with Ellee’s hand drawn and digitally edited calligraphy, secret-diary-worthy confessions of a magazine editor turned full time creative living the dream and really… etc.

An incredibly talented and driven young designer. Multi skilled and highly creative, she helped take the brand in new directions and tackled some challenging and time sensitive projects with enthusiasm. I genuinely enjoyed working with Ellee and hope we cross paths again because I know that whatever we have on the go, she'll bring a keen eye and a can do attitude.
It has been great working with Ellee and the team at YOLO Magazine! Ellee has a great understanding of clients' needs and always gets key messages in articles seemlessly. We love what she does with visuals in the mag, especially with our stories for Rdio and Twilight at Taronga. We are looking forward to continuing the relationship.
Ellee's design skills speak for themselves, all you need to do is look at her work and see the marvellous things that she is cabable of. Nonetheless, here's what LinkedIn is endorsing her for...
