Work with Ella Johnston

Thank you for taking an interest in us collaborating together. I’m an illustrator, crafts and interiors journalist, photo shoot stylist and sometimes as a presenter and demonstrator. You’ll see examples of my work across the pages of this blog – if you think any of my portfolio of skills and experience could help with your project or business then please get in touch.

Previous magazines I have edited include, Homemaker, Let’s Get Crafting, PaperCrafter, Craft Focus and Restaurant Magazine. I have also written and worked on publications for brands such as Cath Kidston, Marks and Spencer Home and Boots.

UNI-BALL/POSCA

I also work with Uniball on workshops, product development and as a brand ambassador. I have worked as a creative consultant looking at the company’s craft delivery, developing a style of photography, projects and tone of voice to appeal to the craft audience. I also provided top tips, projects and videos for the Posca Make Today website.

I enjoy working with brands that share my love of craft and design and am always happy to discuss collaborative campaigns and opportunities to champion products that excite me. If you’re a PR or brand and would like to get involved with Ella’s Place, then please get in touch.

If you have a product or idea that fits with my idea of great content then I’m happy to run sponsored posts on this site (always flagged as such). Alternatively, I’m available for styling your products at photoshoots, speaking and presenting roles plus column, feature and copywriting.
