Elly Thompson


I’m a multi-disciplined designer with 13 years industry experience and a background in online & digital advertising. Having spent the majority of my design career working in an agency environment, I’m now a lucky mother of two young children and I freelance from my home in Wiltshire, using my skills in design and creativity to help businesses flourish.

Education & Work


I graduated from Bath Spa University in 2004 with a BA Hons 2:1 in Graphic Design (Specialising in Screen Design in my third year).

New Zealand
After graduating, I moved to Auckland (NZ) and worked as a freelance designer, before joining London Agency Skyron in 2005, where I created online marketing creative for a variety of clients, including The Sun, XL Leisure Group and Heineken.

Squeeze Digital
I then moved to Squeeze Digital in 2006, a digital direct marketing agency that specialised the development of bespoke digital marketing applications. Clients included Harcourt Education, RM, Macmillan, Pearson, Vodafone and British Red Cross.

Senior Designer at Donor Cardwell Hawkins
Squeeze eventually merged with London advertising agency Donor Cardwell Hawkins (DCH) in 2008 to form an integrated agency. Clients included Vodafone, Travelodge, Sharp, Nikon, D-Link, St. John’s Ambulance.

Senior Designer at Dare
In 2010, I joined Campaign’s Agency of the Decade ‘Dare’, where I was Senior Designer for three years before having my first child. Here I was responsible for designing and producing online digital and social media content for large clients including BMW, Sony, Premier Inn, Sainsbury’s, Greene King, Sky, Vodafone and Vision Express.

I now freelance, creating all things bright and beautiful, for clients great and small.
