Designer & Social Media Manager
Yolande is illustrator, artist, printmaker and designer based in London. She graduated from Central Saint Martins in 2019 with a BA in Graphic Communication Design. Her clients as an illustrator include Nike, Penguin and The New Yorker.
Yolande’s personal practice often explores the social dynamics surrounding her mixed cultural identity, combining bold colours and humorous drawings to communicate a more serious message. She often uses printmaking techniques as vehicles to project messages of celebration and discontent. Her final project at BA was centred on the end of Mugabe’s 37 year reign over Zimbabwe and the frustration and anger left in his wake.
Yolande is one of the current recipients of the ‘Make it Award’ at Cockpit Arts in Depford.
