Hi I am recent graduate from the University of Gloucestershire in Creative Advertising and aspiring Art Director.

I got on the New Blood Academy as a wildcard, by doing stand up comedy when our pitch broke in front of 40 industry professionals.

Luckily my work is better than my jokes...
What do you get if you cross a joke and a rhetorical question? *crickets*

I will support D&AD over the next year by showing first hand experience of getting a job as a young Art Director trying to make it in London and hopefully will gain some useful insight into how to make it better and easier for the next years New Bloods. I also love doing talks and presentations, so would be more than happy to come in and talk to D&AD and the younger talent about the Academy itself and the big wide world of the creative industry. But Ultimately have a lot to owe to D&AD and the New Blood Academy itself and i aim to repay the knowledge and opportunities it has given me, especially being a wild card.

I designed the most recent D&AD New Blood zine within Creative Review, so that's pretty cool.

I also pledge to erect a statue of Harambe outside every affiliated D&AD agency.

I literally just ate 4 pizzas in a single day, some say I'm overqualified but I don't get involved in the politics.

Ellis xoxo
