Hi, I’m Pilgrim Hodgson

I was born in Adelaide, South Australia. the only child of two creative patents, I grew up spending a lot of time in my mum’s graphic design studio and my dad’s photography dark room. I was surrounded by art and design books and from a really early age had definite ideas about style.

The early exposure to the graphic style of my parent’s youth has stayed with me and some of my strongest influences are things I encountered when I was still small: Heinz Edelmann’s Yellow Submarine, the designers behind Push Pin graphics, Marimekko, Alexander Girard and the bold fabrics etc of the era.

I loved my after school art classes and school holidays were spent running wild at the technical college my mum worked at. Imagine the fun i had in full professional video studio, photography studio and audio studio – as well as my mum’s store room full of Letraset, airbrushes and inks! Heaven.

As I grew older I worked alongside my mum on freelance work and later I studied visual communication at the University of South Australia.

After spending a few years in England, I am now settled with my husband and son in the fabulous city of Melbourne, Australia.

I’m excited to share my work with you and if you think I’d be the right fit for a job you have in mind, please don’t hesitate to email me.
