Ella Higgins

Ella is a designer based in Portland, Ore. She is fascinated with the relationship between colors and their emotional impact through design and is interested in experimenting with them through visual art. Her dream is to design wine labels (if you are a winery please contact) and to design the most beautiful cafe from the ground up.





GEMMS* Magazine is a publication I created. Only one copy exsists in the world! I’m interested in creating different ways of using a grid and placement of photos.

I like the idea of fitting smaller images within bodies of text.

This publication was inspired and dedicated to my friends. GEMMS is an acronym for the first letter of each of our names. I wanted to create a piece that embodied the culture of girlhood, which is why I chose the article Why Romantic Comedies matter to layout. There is beauty and a softness within the friendship of women, which is why I chose to use soft colors and off-white paper.
