Hollie & Figgs’ Animator Maisie Grant

Maisie Grant

Graduating with a 1st class honours degree in Animation from De Montfort University in 2018, I have been able to further develop my creative and technical skills as a Junior Motion Graphics Designer, currently working at a medical communications agency.

When I saw the call to work on the next Hollie and Figgs book I was excited to throw my hat into the ring because it looked fun and more illustrative than design jobs I had seen up to that point. I was lucky enough to be chosen to illustrate the project, and I enjoyed the level of freedom and trust in my abilities that Annette gave me, and it didn’t take long for me to fall in love with the characters and add my own take on them! Working on emulating the style of the original book was also a great learning experience because I was pushed to find solutions to make my work look as close to the original while still moving the story and imagery along.
