Oliver Hilliker

Graphic & Motion graphic designer. Based in Edinburgh & Glasgow. My practice focuses on investigating visual aesthetics through combinations of tactile and digital matter for printed matter, publications and design for screen.

I hold an MFA in Graphic Design from Glasgow School of Art and a Ba in animation from Edinburgh College of art.

I also run a small design studio Fed & Watered. We are a design, direction and branding studio based in Edinburgh and Glasgow.

The idea behind the studio is simple — we specialise in food, drink and all things hospitality. Our design ethos focuses on crafting contemporary, honest and useful design for the everyday.

Feel free to get in touch for futher enquiries.

Timberyard

Timberyard is a family-run restaurant in the heart of Edinburgh. Set in an authentic warehouse dating back to the 19th century when it was built as a props & costume store.

I was asked to create a new brand identity, website and visual communication solution that allowed the restaurant to adapt, thrive and promote new offerings in a post Covid 19 market.

Magic

Magic is an illusion; it is only possible because your brain can not sort out what it is you are witnessing; to enjoy it you must do nothing more than just let go and be sucked in to the illusionists world and see what they would like you to see.

This publication is an abstract representation of the life of a magic trick, involving nothing more than a ball and a length of thread. This zine explores the tricks story and the relationships we share with the path it has been on.

Fresca Pasta

Fresca pasta is a small independent weekly handmade pasta pop up restaurant residing in the Scottish capital. Ran by Andrew McHarg. The brand ended up as a collage  style, paying homage to European 1950’s advertisement with a colour scheme referencing Italian flour brands, the chalky white and slate red bringing together these elements to form a narrative.

Fundraiser

A fundraiser for those affected by the Australian bushfires. A country left in ashes, looking to rebuild. The identity reflects this.

This event is not a celebration of Australia Day as it stands & we would like to pay our respects to the First Nations people & give recognition for what this day means to them.
