Hello, I'm Ella - a communications professional and content creator with two decades of experience managing and producing media, PR and brand campaigns.
I've produced content for national television programmes, run communications campaigns for international digital agencies and have worked 'client-side' in senior corporate communications roles for government, commercial and in the not-for-profit sector.
Some of the high-profile Australian organisations I've worked with include ABC TV, The Australian Film Institute, Film Victoria, Telstra, Google, RMIT University and Mount Zero Olives.
Born and raised in Melbourne, I've lived and worked interstate and overseas. For two years I worked for the Japanese Government on cultural exchange. As Marketing Manager for Emmy Award winning Iloura VFX I spent two months of each year travelling for business in Australasia. (I loved that job!) Prior to undertaking a Media degree at RMIT University, I also lived in the Northern Territory and worked for D.E.E.T supporting the education of Indigenous children.
Before starting my own consulting and production agency I worked as Head of Communications for the national not-for-profit, Alannah & Madeline Foundation. Supported by corporate partnerships with Google, Telstra, NAB and Richmond FC as well as community fundraising and media initiatives the Foundation runs successful programs in one third of all Australian schools and more than 80% of public libraries supporting children affected by violence and bullying.
My photography has been exhibited at Federation Square, Linden Gallery and has been published in Australian newspapers, magazines and included - by invitation - in the National Library of Australia’s archives. I've managed creative projects that have been awarded by the Melbourne Design Awards, the Melbourne Art and Design Club (MADC) and Desktop's Magazine's Create Design Awards. I guest lecturer in communications strategy Melbourne and Swinburne Universities.
When I'm not working I love to travel, watch films, lose time with family and friends in museums and galleries and jump onto my yoga mat.
As Mitchella + Co, I'm proud to work with a range of talented associates to provide brand and media strategy and marketing campaigns to businesses big and small. See my portfolio pages for selected examples of work, and click to view professional recommendations.
