Hello, my name is Gill McColl and I am an Edinburgh-based, freelance graphic designer with a love of cold climates, screenprinting and living by the sea.

I have a broad range of skills covering everything from brand identity to print design, digital design to illustration, and art direction to copywriting. With over 13 years professional experience, I love taking projects all the way from an initial concept to the final artwork.

If you would like to discuss a new project, please drop me a line or click here to find out about my experience.


Gill always goes above and beyond expectations and is fully committed to each and every project thrown her way. Her flair for creativity and passion for design is reflected in each and everything she does and I'd highly recommend her services to anyone.

What struck me most was (Gill's) ability to quickly interpret the brief, following which she delivered concepts that were spot on. Always prepared to go that extra mile, Gill is bright, bubbly and enthusiastic and I would highly recommend her to those looking for work that will be delivered on time and to budget.
