          • Jake Hollings is an illustrator and designer. He has worked with a number of global clients and collaborators to produce editorial illustration, music packaging, mural installation, textiles and self-published works. Within his commercial practice, Jake plays with the notion of abstraction and minimalism - challenging quality of line, texture and colour. He explores the juxtaposition between chaos and control using a combination of traditional printmaking and digital media. Selected clients include BBC Introducing, The Guardian, Mosaic Science, The Skinny, Culture Trip, Fine Little Day, Glasgow Film Festival and Slowdown Studio. Works have been featured by Creative Review, D&AD, People of Print, Newspaper Club, Canvas by Grolsch and Cool Brother.
