About me
Hello! My name is Imogen; I am an Illustrator and animator based in Scarborough, North Yorkshire! I love to create feel-good images and environments; with the aim of making my audience feel joyful, nostalgic, or simply entertained! The main concern in my life and work is engaging audiences through positive messages, to incite social and environmental change. It is forever my goal to use humour, colourful imagery and eye-catching characters, to inform my audience, create positive change, or to support clients that share this ideology. Software Proficiency: -Illustrator -After Effects -Procreate -Photoshop -InDesign

    Bonfire Night!This one really tested me-but I had a great time creating this poster!
  • Celebrating Marcus Rashford MBE
    Celebrating Marcus Rashford MBEAnother one that I've been wanted to make for months! I was putting this GIF off since I haven't done a portrait in years (?) and I wanted to do it justice. Anyhow, can you possibly find a nicer guy than Marcus Rashford? I've been wanting to make this GIF since his amazing campaigning against child poverty, and his open letter concerning free school meals. It was so amazing to read about his activism and I wanted to find a way to show just some of his incredible accomplishments and the amazing o
  • Jurassic Park
    Jurassic ParkThe original Jurassic Park is still one of my very favourite films-so here are a few of the GIFs I made inspired from it! (I also wanted a barbasol can to hide things in as a child)
  • Idle
    IdleIDLE is a self-led project that I worked on towards the end of the UK national lockdown in 2021. My aim was to share these snippets of life that I’ve made note of over the last few years-and that have, until now, been trapped in the depths of my notes app. My aim was to use noise and movement to capture a ‘feeling’ for all of these GIFs; they all depict generally universal experiences for people in the UK. Most of us have experienced a sleepy (hungover?) Sunday morning, a cold bathroom, a sunny
  • Make food recycling universal!
    Make food recycling universal!This project is close to my heart, as someone who centres their way of life around environmental concerns! Food waste recycling is a hugely under-used resource and so the main focus of this project was to capture the attention of the public through humour and eye-catching illustrations! These illustrations then lead to a fictional website which has all of the relevant information. I wanted to use as many platforms as possible to reach the public, with billboard and bus posters, editorial illustr
  • Halloween Food Waste Recycling
    Halloween Food Waste RecyclingI'm currently in the process of designing an illustrative campaign to make food waste recycling compulsory in the UK. The provision of recycling services in the UK is sporadic and dependant on the local councils policy. Food recycling can create huge amounts of green energy and food waste creates huge environmental damage when it goes to landfill. It really is a no-brainer!
