Ollie Hirst

Ollie is a conceptual illustrator, based in Manchester UK. Illustration makes him tick.
Though it’s not the only thing that does. He’s a cardiac pacemaker patient. So, whilst he puts his heart into drawing, it gets help from time to time. He has a natural affinity to science, health and the human body, but tends to just love subjects that resonate in the real world. He likes his work to hinge on a strong idea and the concept drives it, helped by a splash of colour. Ollie works across editorial & advertising, with the likes of New Scientist, The Washington Post, Vodafone, Harvard Business Review, The Lancet, and has been recognised by The Association of Illustrators, The Directory of Illustration and Communication Arts.
