​Hi!

I'm Anna Hollinrake, award winning art director, illustrator and BAFTA Breakthrough Brit. I have worked in studio as an artist and art director to define art styles on independent titles such as Lola and the Giant and Arca's Path VR, and created concepts, UI and environments for much loved IPs such as Adventure Time and Magic: The Gathering​. I have also worked in 2D animation for television, art directing the CBeebies show Love Monster. I have contributed to Develop and ImagineFX magazines, and have worked with clients including IGN and Apple.

Alongside working in studio, I love to teach and help others. I speak regularly on the nature of creativity, the need for greater awareness of mental health, and the importance of strong worldbuilding in games. Lesser (but also very valid) interests include cheese, brogues and collecting too many art books.
