Mike Ellott – Designer

I’m a Creative based in Sydney Australia, with over 25-years experience in editorial and book publishing design.


I recently held the position of Creative Director at Australian Geographic, there I worked and commissioned world leading photographers and illustrators.

Specialising in book designs that reflect Science, Travel, Nature and Adventure. I pride myself in creating books that deliver clean, creative modern results that let the content sing. I’m a collaborative designer who enjoys meeting and working with others to design books with impact. I produce commercial books that stand the test of time, many having multiple print runs.

Now working for myself, I look forward to taking on new challenges and expanding on my body of work.
