Gemma Purkiss



Gemma here, I’m an illustrator, graphic designer, catastrophic thinker and use all of that to solve problems through visual means.

After 5 years of working in film distribution I joined Shillington on their part-time programme and graduated in July 2018 with an envious skillset in design.

The same month I was awarded a Print Future Awards from the Printing Charity, allowing me to focus on illustration and screen printing, get a subscription to Stack Magazines and join the AOI in order to boost my skills and gain employment as an illustrator and designer.

With my experience in film distribution and liaising with producers for the creation of theatrical artwork and trailers I have developed a thirst for project management, creation of visual assets and creative problem solving for brands.

I’m looking to collaborate with other designers, animators, filmmakers, theatre practitioners, story tellers and writers.

Hit me up at if you think I’d be suitable for a collaboration or commission.
