About Maggie Cousins

I'm an illustrator, letterer, artist and designer, originally from London. I've spent the last 10 years living and working in New York but now based in Bristol, UK.

I graduated from Bournemouth College of Art and Design, UK. After selling my design and branding agency to McCann-Erikson I focused on illustration and in 2006 I became a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts.

I'm lucky enough to work with clients in the UK and the US. My work has appeared on websites, walls, book jackets, magazines, film, advertising, exhibition panels, logos and lots of other visual marketing and fun stuff.

My work has a strong graphic style, bold, colorful and digital. I love simplicity - ‘less is always more!’  

I collect old tins, I love typography and dogs. My rescue Corgi Duffy is always on hand to lend a helping paw. If only he could make my coffee. 

If you're interested in working with me or just want to get in touch and say hello please email
