About yours truly

Hi, I’m Olly Gibbs, also known as ‘The Doodler’ and ‘Lumpy Jelly Hands’. I’m a professional multi-disciplined designer & illustrator. I also work for Empire Magazine as designer for the Print and Digital (iPad/Android) side. I’m capable of doing the ‘quirky’ fun style of work but I’m also fully experienced in doing corporate websites/branding so don’t be too put off! Detailing is something I take pride in with my work, the small finishing touches can really bring out the final experience! I am a member of the Association of Illustrators.

I’m available for freelance work, please use the contact section to chat.

If you would like to see my CV then please Email me (and say hello!)
