Ellen Sloan BA (Hons) Graphic Design

Ellen Sloan

Hi, I'm Ellen! I'm a Northern Irish, Manchester-based Graphic Designer with a strong base in illustration. I enjoy looking into the wider background of projects and creating an educational impact with my work. I have a strong interest in branding/packaging design and creating a face for a story. Ideally, I believe I would thrive in the field of branding and packaging design, however, I am more than willing to try my hand in all areas of graphic design to improve personal and professional skills. The project that is pictured is entitled 'Mish-Mash'. Mish-Mash is a competition brief that I submitted to Brand Opus. Mish-Mash is a CBD-infused drink with sustainability at it's heart. Made using UK-grown, 'wonky' fruit, this lessens the carbon footprint and means nothing goes to waste. On the topic of no waste, the bottles are made using the same hemp plants the CBD is derived from, meaning they are 100% biodegradable. Every bottle has its very own unique pattern and the launch event consists of vending machines that would pop up around the city. An app has been designed with a map to show where the venders are located. There would be a weekly 'winning pattern', where a prize would be won if this patterned bottle is found.
