About Koskinen Creative

Hey there! Thanks for stopping by.

My name is Holly and I’m an award-winning print, digital and mobile Creative Director based in Columbus, Ohio that specializes in print, brand identity, web design, User Interface (UI), User Experience (UX), marketing, brand strategy and more.

Over the last 12 years, I’ve gained a breadth of experience, have racked up several American Graphic and Web Design Awards and have showcased my work in Graphic Design USA Magazine. You name it, I’ve probably have done it.

I’m a straight-shooter. I don’t beat-around-the-bush nor have time for office politics. I trust the teams and people I work with, am educationally-decisive and know how to have a good time with lots of laughs, all while creating amazing work.

My kicks in life come from creating smart and well-executed work, a strong cup of coffee, helping clients achieve their goals, a good book, impromptu dance parties and a good bourbon or wine at the end of a hard day.

If you’re ready to collaborate with a fun, professional, educated and enthusiastic creative—let’s go.

“I like how you handle type. You have a nice range but it always seems to be the right choice for the given client.”

— Christopher Cole, SVP/Creative Director, Leo Burnett

Brand Experience

During my career, I’ve worked for a wide range of companies (small to large, B2B, B2C, corporate, local) and hold a large variety of brand categories/industries under my belt.
