Hello, I'm Molly
Illustrator. Designer. Digital Nomad.
Hello, I'm Molly, a freelance Graphic Designer and Illustrator from London, and founder of Molly Maine Creative, a remote design studio. 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 London and Lisbon 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 creative professionals who assist me with anything from design to animation, coding, AR, film, and photography. Whilst I personally oversee and art direct all design work, my team helps me to expand projects creatively, offering a broader, 360 approach for my clients with options to grow campaigns in different directions.
I pride myself on only working on projects and brands that I believe in, and I love collaborating with passionate people who have exciting ideas that make a positive difference. I particularly enjoy working with innovative start-ups, environmentally friendly organisations, creative industries and companies that champion gender equality. My clients are varied and range from bestselling authors to Michelin starred restaurants, cutting-edge fashion brands and wellness companies.

A phenomenal illustrator
