Over the course of this year, Lily McStocker has worked across digital and print, and everything in-between, producing a body of work which spans the disciplines of type design, branding, animation, model-making, and publication. Whilst her practice varies in medium, she always approaches projects with a strong sense of narrative, and it is this thread which unites her diverse portfolio.
