Meet Creative People | 遇见创意人士 Ella


Craft and creativity continues to grow in China, none of which would be possible without the inspired and daring minds behind the ideas and production. We are asking the creative community in China five fun questions to learn a little bit more about the people behind this burgeoning industry.  Hope you enjoy! If you think you should be profiled or you know someone creative who should be profiled send an email to


Dashchenko Ella
illustrator, photographer and graphic designer

My name is Ella.

I am originally from Siberia, and I currently live and work in Shanghai.

Although I am not the best storyteller in person, my artworks speak for me.

All the images I create are metaphors and stories that offer an opportunity to feel the world around us differently.





In addition to graphic design and illustrations, I also express myself in creative photography – with a mix of different styles to create deep, meaningful and unique images.

I work with international clients in order to create new ideas and creative solutions for various brands – logo design; custom illustrations for books, magazines, music track covers; character design and icons.



I’m always open for interesting and challenging projects!


1. Coolest place you’ve travelled to 旅行去过的最有意思的地方是哪里?
