Hello, I'm Molly
Illustrator. Designer. Digital Nomad.
Hello, I'm Molly, a freelance Illustrator and Graphic Designer from London. I graduated from University College Falmouth in 2009 with a BA in Illustration (inc. a year specialising in Graphic Design and Illustration in Japan), and an MA in Creative Advertising. I have since gained over a decade of professional experience working across the creative industries including five years with leading book publisher, Walker Books.
My passion for creativity and travel has taken me around the world to 47 countries and I have clients in Europe, Asia and the USA. Being location independent means I can offer my clients competitive rates, round-the-clock flexibility and quick turnarounds. I currently work between Lisbon and Mexico City, where you will usually find me in a co-working space with my Macbook and sketchbook.
Molly Maine Creative is my remote design studio, where I manage a small hand-picked team of talented creatives who assist me with a wide range of design projects. My clients include international book publishers, Michelin starred restaurants, film and TV companies, bestselling authors, and cutting-edge fashion brands. I pride myself on only working on projects that I believe in; I particularly enjoy working with environmentally friendly organisations, creative industries, and companies that champion gender equality and diversity.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY.
An absolute joy to work with
"I have worked with Molly for years and I trust her completely. Every piece of work she delivers is to an exceptionally high standard. She, without fail, meets deadlines (or delivers early!) and she is an absolute joy to work with. She attends to each project with creative flair and tight attention to detail. I can't recommend Molly highly enough!
CEO af Tandem Collective
Fantastic, alternative ideas
"Working with Molly exceeded my expectations. She was very transparent in her communication when laying out her creative process, timeline, and cost. All deliverables were consistent with the project plan and her ability to think creatively brought fantastic, alternative ideas that I ended up choosing. I look forward to the opportunity to work with Molly again."

An incredibly talented designer
"Working with Molly was just a joy! She is an incredibly talented designer who goes the extra distance to understand her client’s needs. Her attention to detail and prompt, intelligent responses and suggestions made what could have been a very tricky process (given the project had multiple approval partners) a smooth and positive experience. I can’t wait to work with Molly again soon and would recommend her in a heartbeat."
A great eye for detail
"We’ve worked with Molly Maine Creative for over six months now, and I couldn’t recommend Molly more highly. She’s incredibly hard working and professional, as well as having a great eye for detail. She turns projects around quickly, and is always a joy to work with. We look forward to a continued working relationship with Molly Maine Creative."
Creative and full of ideas

She is reliable, easy to work with and creative – it was a stress free process and I’ll definitely be commissioning her in the future.”
