Newport-based creative design agency, Icon Creative Design has appointed a new designer.

Holly Tyler graduated with a first class honours degree in graphic communication from the University of South Wales this summer.

Holly has a particular interest in branding and typography. Her creative talent was recognised when she was awarded a ‘New Now’ Award in London by YCN, the leading network in recognising and developing emerging creatives in the UK.

Holly said: "Working in Icon’s design studio has been an incredible learning curve. Finding intelligent and creative design solutions to live briefs has been hugely rewarding.

"University of South Wales was a great place to study; to progress to a commercial studio shortly after graduating has been the perfect start to my professional design career."
