About me
Hey, I'm Hollie a recent Graphic Design graduate from Nottingham Trent University. I’m from a small town up 'North' but also referred to as the ‘Fake Northener’. My inspiration and how I design is influenced by where I was brought up. I have a keen interest in packaging, branding and editorial with a purpose behind every idea and decision throughout my creative process. I’m ready for the next challenge that comes my way pushing me out of my comfort zone. Looking for opportunities to launch me into the start of (hopefully) my design career! h.sanderson1997@gmail.com
