Ellen has been with DDB & Tribal Amsterdam since 2013. She leads a team of user experience designers and creative technologists that realise digital experiences for real people. She has brought a UX mindset into all projects, working for clients such as adidas, KLM, McDonalds, Unilever, P&G, Volkswagen and Heineken. She can be found at the helm of a diverse array of projects, varying from digital campaigns, to big platform sites, to interactive installations.

Ellen studied Arts & Sciences at Maastricht University, specialising in technological culture, and has 13 years of working experience on various key projects and clients – always driven by innovative strategy and end user satisfaction.

In her personal time, she can be found still at the helm – of a sailboat – or with a good book in hand. And spending time with friends and family, preferably accompanied by a home-cooked meal, is what she loves most.
