Holly Hollon

A native of Birmingham, Alabama, Holly Cook Hollon happily returned to her hometown after receiving a BFA in Graphic Design at Auburn University. After working in the field of advertising, she began her own business to pursue her creative interests, focusing on working with small businesses, creating logos and branding systems, and with brides, creating wedding stationery suites. The unique design aesthetic of Holly’s work has been influenced by her skills in illustration and calligraphy. Using hand drawn techniques and drawings gives her designs a personal and rare touch. In recent years, the American Advertising Federation named Holly “Designer of the Year” and “Illustrator of the Year” in its Addy Awards ceremony and Town and Country magazine named her one of the top 8 Wedding Illustrators in the country. Her work has been featured in other renowned media outlets such as Southern Living, Design Sponge, and Oh So Beautiful Paper, among others. The designer spends her free time cooking, indulging in chick-flicks, scavenging estate sales, and spending time with her two poodles and husband, Charlton.
