Hi there, I’m Neal McCullough an internationally acclaimed illustrator and owner of Hand Drawn Creative. With over 25 years’ experience working across creative industries in London and Belfast, I founded Hand Drawn Creative in 2009 and quickly established myself as one of Northern Ireland’s leading illustrators. In 2021 Julie McCullough came onboard as Studio Manager and together we deliver a bespoke design service to clients from around the world.

Hand Drawn Creative produces feel-good designs that are unique and enduring, helping businesses large and small to stand out from the crowd with vivid, colourful illustrations that get noticed.

Our clients enjoy a personalised service, engaging in a shared creative process that ensures we deliver what they need. From the initial creative briefing session, to finished artwork, we pride ourselves on our professional, friendly service and building lasting relationships with our clients.

Whether you need a new logo, a unique suite of illustrations for your website or brochure, or a whole new campaign, Hand Drawn Creative can be trusted to create something fresh, bold and effective.

Get in touch, we’d love to hear from you.
