As the Graphic Designer of Borderline Arts, Holly is responsible to creating high-impact designs for a huge variety of products and activities, such as our website, advertising, flyers and much more - i.e. giving Borderline Arts a visual 'brand'.
She is currently working on a brand refresh too, so watch this space!
Where are you from?
Brighton (now living in Leeds).
Why did you choose to volunteer at Borderline Arts?
I wanted to use my time to make a positive difference in the world - particularly when it comes to mental health. I was drawn to Borderline Arts because BPD is lesser known by many people and there can be such stigma around personality disorders, so I really wanted to help to be a part of that journey to raise awareness to make a difference to those affected. I also believe the arts offer such wonderful creative expression and outlet, so LOVE the charity vision and what the team are doing!

Do you have any phobias?
No phobias, but I'm not a fan of the dark!
Marmite: love it or hate it?
An interesting (or weird) fact about you?
I make miniature clay dogs, called DiddyDogs and quirky earrings (like miniature beans on toast)!
