New York.


Born in 1990, legend has it my first words were ‘draw, draw, draw’… though this myth has since been debunked. As a kid I needed nothing more than my Smoby desk and trusty pencil case.

After graduating with a first class degree in Graphic Design from Leeds Arts University in 2012, I moved to Paris to intern at Ogilvy. This led to a 2 year long adventure in Paris, and a further 3 years in New York, where I developed my designs skills and previously overlooked aspects of my practice including: collaborative work, client interaction, idea generation and concepting. During my 5 year advertising career I have had the honour of working on projects, such as ‘Type with Pride’, that have won prestigious awards including: D&AD, Cannes Lions, One Show, Clios, and many more.

Currently a Senior Designer at TBWA/Chiat/Day’s New York office, but always on the lookout for freelance opportunities. The weirder and more wonderful the better. Get in touch. robynmakinson@gmail.com
