ep 01. Starting out in a downstairs studio

“I think at the end of the day, we started Ellivo
because we just wanted something more”

Scott Whiteoak (Co-Founder)

Scott and Mason started Ellivo 25 years ago in the downstairs studio of Scott’s house in Bardon. They had a drive to create an environment that was supportive and enjoyable, that put people first and fostered good design. The business has changed a lot since then, but the core values have stayed the same.

“We really wanted to have an office environment that was both professional but fun at the same time. I think at the end of the day we just wanted something more, a choice about how you might put your own stamp on the industry that we were working in.”

Mason Cowle (Director)

“It was certainly an exciting time starting a company. Today the excitement is more around leaving a legacy that is larger than us individually and that will continue to produce good work and a great into the future.” 

Scott Whiteoak (Co-Founder)

Ellivo has changed and grown a lot over the last 25 years. Here are a few of our favourite earlier projects.
