Ashlie Ellis - the Owner
Born in Chelmsford, England. I studied Graphic Design, Interactive Media, IT, and Photography in college. I went on to study at the University of Suffolk graduating with a Bachelors of Arts with Honours in Event Management,
From there I began my graphic design career working for an event styling company based in London, England, producing work and events for brands such as L'oréal, YouTube, Charlotte Tilbury and many more.
I decided to make a big change and look for adventure and inspiration. This led to me backpacking solo around Thailand and Australia working as a freelance graphic designer creating professional products and designs.
AE Creative Design was born.
Jim Gunzel - 3D and Animation
Born in the Netherlands, Jim and his family moved to Moraira, Spain when he was aged 7. Growing up in a new country allowed Jim to develop incredible language skills; he is fluent speaking in Dutch, Spanish, English, Valenciano and can even speak some German. Jim studied Mountaineering, before heading off to Asia, Australia and New Zealand to work and travel for 3 years.
Jim self taught himself to create spectacular graphic design work, specialising in 3D and animation. Working as a freelancer whilst he travelled, he gained and developed more skills and was able to work across the world.
Jim Moved to England in October, and will be starting his British adventure whilst working for us at AE Creative Design.
