who we are

So who made our new poster, anyway? Meet Millie Sander, Graphic Designer.

If you’ve received an order in the past few weeks, you’ve probably noticed that it now includes a gorgeous new poster with a quiz on the back – we know you secretly love flow chart quizzes. But we couldn’t keep the secret behind this art to ourselves. It’s our pleasure to introduce an Australian up-and-comer in graphic design & illustration: Millie Sander. View her website or follow her on Instagram @ameliahsander.

Who are you?

I’m Millie, a graphic designer/creative from Adelaide, South Australia with a passion for colour, shapes and anything creative.

 

When did you start graphic design & illustration, and how have opportunities unfolded for you since then?

I was always interested In art and illustration as a kid, and it has always come quite naturally to me. I studied graphic design at Uni and took every opportunity I could to get my foot in the door after my studies. I have worked for a range of different clients and in a few different graphic design roles. Each project is so unique to the next and I think that is why I love it so much.

 

What’s been your most exciting project?

I recently worked on a coffee campaign with a health food company.  Five different coffee cups were designed, each containing a different subject. World Vision, The Great Barrier Reed and Sourcing Ethical Coffee Beans were just a few. The aim of these cups was to educate the community about world issues and give customers the opportunity and knowledge to reach out and help. I love working on projects that can make a difference; it is such a great feeling!

 

Where did you take inspiration from when working on the oVertone poster?

This was a really fun project to work and the brand really speaks for itself. I took inspiration from the bright, fun youthful brand that is overtone and turned it into something people could display on their bedroom walls.

 

What are your long-term goals as an artist?

I would love to own a creative studio, working with other creatives to produce things that are quite left of centre. Creating things by hand are what I love most and incorporating this into my work gives me quite a unique style. One of my long term goals is to start up a creative homewares brand creating a range of prints, ceramics and textiles. I am homewares obsessed!

 

Who are some of your favorite artists?

I am really loving artists that use simple colours and shapes. My current faves would have to be Atelier Bingo, Anna Beam and Karl-Joel Lrsn to name a few.

 

What’s your fave hair trend right now?

I never thought I would say this but I am really loving fringes and layering at the moment. It’s making a comeback!
