Bethany Free
Hi! I’m Beth and I’m an illustrator, designer and thinker. I enjoy using humour in my work through playful copy and illustration, whilst also tackling topics that I’m passionate about. Using design as a force for good to create change for social causes like the climate crisis, sustainability, feminism and equality is a key interest of mine. I equally love how design can bring someone happiness on a smaller scale whether that be through greeting cards, print or a beautiful book cover. With a passion for bold and strong graphic compositions, my work is punchy and full of personality. I’ve been shortlisted for the Penguin Random House Student Design Awards in 2019 and 2020, received a YCN Design Award in 2020 and was highly commended in the Carmelite Picture Book Prize 2021. I believe these awards show my strength in book design, illustration and innovative concepts. I have an imaginative and creative mind, an enthusiastic personality and ready to put my all into every new experience.
