Lillian Ip-Koon

Hi! I’m Lillian, a very passionate Graphic Designer and Illustrator.

After graduating from UAL with a BA (Hons) in Graphic and Media Design, I freelanced for five years- illustrating, designing for print and web, and leading and supporting art workshops, art-based events and exhibitions. I also started The Little Matters, a place I share my enthusiasm for adorable animals and cheesy humour as illustrated products with the world. 


In 2016, I began working as an in-house designer at 2Simple Software, an Edtech company that creates fun and engaging education software for Primary Schools. I illustrated a number of e-books, got involved with UI/UX design and worked with developers on creating new apps.

When I’m not busy designing and drawing, you may also find me playing piano, practicing aikido or fending off my two little ones :)
