Ellis in Wonderland
Game researcher and consultant

Ellis Bartholomeus started her career as a industrial designer at the Design Academy in Eindhoven. Via signage design, graphic, web and interaction design she became a game designer and created serious games for ten years with Laika.nl. Gaming appeared to be a rich medium for clients to get a message to their clients/users, for educational and health purposes, to help users/players develop knowledge, skills or attitude on various topics.

In 2010 she became eager to get more indepth involved with the use of gaming as a medium and tool and not just for fun. Gaming has great potential in education, health and daily social life. As game researcher and game consultant she is full‑time in Wonderland and learning about play and motivation.
