About me
Hello! I'm Orla, and I love to make data, stories and big ideas relatable, through playful and colourful Illustration, Design and Artwork. 5 years freelance experience creating for editorial, packaging, print and pattern design projects in industries ranging across tech, drinks, outdoors, education, music, luxury goods and more. This year I'd love to work on more murals, live illustration, branding and map design. When I'm not creating, you'll find me outside exploring up hills, or with my two cats. If you've a project in mind, say hello at os@orlastevens.com. Select Clients: Fib Whisky, Orraman Leather, Adaptation Scotland, Greenspace Scotland, Stirling Council, Scottish Government, Orkney Islands Council, Edinburgh Fringe, Aequill.
