​I'm Anna Hollinrake, award winning creative director, BAFTA Breakthrough Brit, and now co-founder and Creative Director of my own indie studio Electric Saint. With eight years in video games and animation, I have worked as an Art Lead on Fall Guys, building the Creative Services team from the ground up to support a 50 million player free-to-play-launch. My time has also been extensively spent in game development, as an artist and art director defining art styles on independent titles such as Lola and the Giant and Arca's Path VR, and creating concepts, UI and environments for much loved IPs such as Adventure Time and Magic: The Gathering​. Outside of the games sphere, I have worked in 2D animation for television, art directing the CBeebies show Love Monster. I have contributed to MCV/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 tailoring, film and collecting too many art books.
