Olivia Twist

Olivia Twist

Olivia is a London based illustrator who has a keen interest in exploring concepts of heritage, oral history and the ‘shock of the familiar’. She is currently a second year student at the Royal College of Art studying MA Visual Communication.

Through the use of reportage illustration, Olivia routinely explores concepts of routine, the mundane and nostalgia, all central themes in her work.

Olivia’s work is unrepentantly raw, genuine and comprises a myriad of esoteric layers, informed through her love of observation and self-ethnography.

Her desire as an illustrator is to bring previously untold or overlooked narratives to the foreground, for this reason her favourite part of the design process is research; she draws on a rich range of contributors from multiple disciplines and works very closely with her audience.
