Ella Doran began her career as a young designer with no experience in commercial product design.
Having received a Prince’s Trust loan in 1996, Ella showed her first range of tablemats at the UK trade show ‘Top Drawer’, where she won “Highly Commended Best New Product” for her ‘stones’ collection, a design which set the scene for photographic imagery onto home ware products from then on in.
Within a few years Ella was designing under license for UK tableware manufacturer Portmeirion and tablemat manufacturer Jason, creating ranges of tableware and accessories, which sold globally, further establishing the Ella Doran brand with new purchasers and distribution channels. The following years saw Ella’s creative work continue to develop with a series of product ranges including: bathroom accessories; stationery; storage; kitchen and outdoor picnic ware.
Today her bespoke blinds are snapped up by the most discerning clients, and future collections are planned for repeat fabrics and wall coverings. 2005 saw the launch of her first shop-front office on Cheshire Street, East London, and the online shopping site. While other professional commitments saw Ella becoming a fellow of the Royal Society of Arts in 2006 and her role as an external examiner and judge for new designers has seen her on a number of committees and boards including Middlesex University where she herself graduated in printed textiles.
