About me

Hello, I am Denise Castillo - a freelance illustrator and graphic designer. I make fun and creative digitally rendered hand drawn illustrations, and branding work for various businesses across the world.

I have been in the creative industry since 2015, and started out as a graphic artist associate for a telecommunications company based in Manila, Philippines. In 2016, I ventured into a freelance design career, I started off in creating shirt designs for Amazon businesses, and creating logos and branding kits for start-up businesses mostly based in the USA.

In 2018, I decided to go back to my roots of being an illustrator - and now I work as a freelance illustrator for 2 educators based in the USA. In 2019, I teamed up with a digital agency who is in partnership with UNICEF, and we worked on a project called MAY K KAMI - a campaign to raise awareness about the importance of washing the hands after using a KASILYAS (toilet).

Currently, I am a designer for 2 Hong Kong based companies - Zippie Org., and Helmi Studios.
