Alison Norden

Graphic Designer, Illustrator & Artist

Hello. I’m a Graphic Designer and Illustrator with nearly ten years’ experience in the creative industry. When not sat on sharpenings or armed with pens, I’m most likely to be found splashing about in the countryside.

I studied BA English Language and Literature at the University of Sheffield, and determined to pursue a creative career, I went on to study MA Advertising and Design at the University of Leeds. Quickly scooping up a place on an internship in a Leeds studio in 2009, I haven’t looked back since.

In 2010, I began exploring digital illustrations, but it’s been since 2012 when I joined a Midlands based design agency that I developed unique illustration styles and gained an aptitude for animation, bringing illustrations to life with imagination and intricate detail.

For all clients and projects, I aspire to create unique visual solutions that communicate messages effectively, from illustrations to brand identity and animation. I love getting to know brands and being involved in strategy, carefully considering the needs of clients and their target audiences.

With a wealth of experience in advertising, design, illustration, social marketing, project management and print production, there’s no project too big or too small. Please get in touch if you’d like to work together (or just say hi) and create ideas that bring about a buzz.

You’ll also stumble on a stash of paintings and drawings on my website. Whether drawing characters or exploring organic textures in abstract art, I never stop creating.
