Graphic Design

I offer many years' experience in design for print, screen and social media platforms. I'll create artwork that you can rely on to look and function perfectly in digital and in your hands.


If you're looking for a strong, memorable brand identity or logo and you're not sure where to start, I can help create that personality. Check out my Case Studies for inspiration.


Do you need creative artwork to tell your story? I produce hand-rendered and digital illustrations to suit specific projects; often mixing the two to create a distinctive outcome.

Holly was a joy to work with on our business startup branding. We found Holly knowledgeable, professional and incredibly intuitive, not just hearing us but really listening and understanding the brief from the beginning. A breath of fresh air. We recommend to all.

The vision for my company needed a powerful logo that could communicate our brand and be of a clean design, meaningful and enduring. Holly was my choice to bring the logo to life after seeing her work. She absorbed my description, details, vision and turned out the foundation of the IMORTALIKA brand.
