We help our clients create or develop their brands and then work to make them grow. We believe in creative and effective design, clear communication, excellent service and good value.

the team

Monica Magnussen

Design Director

Originally from Norway, Monica has been working with Hillside since 2006. With more than 15 years professional design experience, her creative approach and in-depth understanding of brand development have been pivotal in helping organisations like Fopp and Edinburgh’s Hogmanay engage with their audience and stand out from their competitors.

Alex Simpkin

Digital & Print Desiger

Alex has been with Hillside since 2016, producing artwork across a wide range of disciplines for both digital media and print. Always paying keen attention to both form and function, Alex delivers digital and print projects with focussed communication amd considered visual impact, user experience and tone of voice.

Maria Stoian

Designer & Illustrator

After graduating with a Master’s degree (with distinction) in illustration from Edinburgh College of Art, Maria seemlessly slotted into work at Hillside last year. Her charming style of illustration, technical know-how and keen eye for detail have all helped to add new dimensions to a wide variety of Hillside projects.
