Hi, I'm Hollie.
A conscious designer.

Biography

I am a graphic designer with a passion for responsible design, driven by producing work that benefits others. 

 

My skills and knowledge include in-depth researching and copywriting, alongside visual communication, typography and illustration.

 

Ultimately, the desire to solve a problem is what matters to me, based on good research and user feedback. 

 

I am open to ideas and test them throughout the design process to come up with the best way to create a solution that will both inform viewers and create positive impact.

 

I enjoy designing for both print and digital and therefore approach a project in the most appropriate way for the subject matter and audience’s needs.
