Freelance creative for small businesses.
Welcome! My name is Holly Stevens and I specialise in graphic design and illustration.
I work with strong and memorable graphic and brand imagery to translate your ideas into a visual medium that can be interpreted and understood by the people you want to reach – with around 15 years’ professional and commercial experience.
My curiosity in design grew after my BA Hons degree and I landed a job in Edinburgh’s then top design firm; Graphic Partners. From the front desk, I watched like a hawk at the cogs in motion, listening hard to every interaction between team members, partners and clients. I gained valuable agency insight that forms much of my working habits now.
Seeking value in my work led me into children’s communications, the charity sector, voluntary work and I eventually came full circle, back to design as I know and love – but with a little more understanding of how I wanted to utilise my skills. Now I live in Devon, home of my family roots.
I’m influenced by global arts masters; Scandinavia, Spain, Poland, Italy, Japan and South America are homes to world-class designers holding the ability to visually communicate with simplicity and efficiency and I look to these works to inspire my own.
