Hello, Holly Akkerman here! I am a graphic designer skilled at print design, branding, typography, photography, exhibition design, digital communications, and marketing. I am also an artist, museumist, pattern designer, seamstress, synchronized swimmer, wife and friend.
As an artist, my passion lies in graphic design and photography. The computer provides structured design creativity while the camera's intuitiveness allows me to be free. As a graphic designer, I am constantly striving to achieve balance and harmony through visually stimulating and informative pieces. I incorporate my affinity for color, humor, and atypical designs into vibrant works. In my work, clean, sharp divisions paired with white space, contrasts bold colors and photographs. I hope to fashion unique and quirky creations that present unforgettable messages. Photography allows me to see the world frame by frame. I am happy with a camera in hand and embrace quiet time shared with the camera eagerly awaiting the click of the shutter, hoping to capture the world from unconventional perspectives. My photographs, in both color and black and white strive to convey realistic and simple beauty in a variety of subjects. My photographic work expresses my growth as a person who is discovering life's curiosities in a universal way and encourages new ideas and contemplation.
