About Nicola Hankins

Nicola is based in Croydon, South London (b.1982) she works as a Visual Designer, Illustrator and Artist. With a bold visual, illustrative style, her work is always imaginative and often amusing. She takes inspiration from the brutalist urban environment where she lives mixed with her dry sense of humour and her ongoing existential crisis. She takes inspiration from urban art, illustration and traditional surrealism.

Her route into the design industry wasn’t traditional, but with a mixture of grit, determination and obsession with aesthetics, art and illustration she made space for herself in the industry.


Nicola has worked in the creative industries as a Visual Designer for 15 years, and has worked in advertising, marketing and product design agencies.
