Ollie Hirst

Ollie is an award-winning Conceptual Illustrator, based in Manchester, UK. Illustration makes him tick. Though it’s not the only thing that does. He’s a lifelong 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, tech, health and the human experience and likes his work to hinge on a strong idea, diluting complex topics into digestible visual concepts, helped by a splash of colour.

Ollie’s illustration spans across editorial & advertising, working with the likes of New Scientist, The Washington Post, WSJ, TED, Harvard Business Review, Genomics England, Boehringer Ingelheim, The Lancet, and has been recognised by The Association of Illustrators, The Directory of Illustration, Communication Arts, 3×3, The World Brand Design Society and The One Club for Creativity.
