When I graduated from Western Carolina University with my BFA in Graphic Design, I remember what my professor said to me and this has inspired me ever since.


“Be the mad scientist not his assistant.”


And from those words, I realized that it wasn’t so much about making something look good, but creating an emotional response that meant more than just a pretty picture. With this motivation, I continued to push myself to make my work bold, confident, and memorable.


I have lived most of my life finding ways to add color, texture, and whimsy to the world. When I think about  Design, I feel as though it is everywhere. It is a mix of storytelling, craft, science and philosophy. The world is constantly changing and as a designer, I believe I need to adapt. Learning new techniques and stepping outside my comfort zone is how I want to grow as a designer. I am looking forward to the projects we can create together.






The name is Holly Overcash. I am a tireless seeker of knowledge, purveyor of wisdom and always; a graphic designer. I live in Austin, TX. I have been doing design professionally since 2010.




Be a mad scientist! If it works they won't be surprised but if it does not work; go crazy and do it again.
