Joe McDonnell – Designer

I'm an illustrator with over 13 years experience. I know what readers want and how to personalize your book for your reader base.


In 2020, my illustration was short-listed for AOI’s World Illustration Award. During my time working as a creative, I've had the opportunity to work with high profile clients, such as Rolling Stone Magazine-acclaimed and JUNO award nominated artist Del Barber.

I always hit my deadlines and work hard to maintain a friendly and professional relationship with all my clients. As someone with not just illustration background, but also a solid foundation in design and typographical principles, I'm a great choice to help make your writing stand out to a new audience.

Happy to chat, so don't hesitate to get in touch to ask any questions, or just simply to workover some ideas.
