Silje Buxton-Soldal

Designer and Illustrator

Silje is a visual communicator, designer and illustrator based in sunny Newcastle, Australia. Silje is a 2016 graduate of the University of Newcastle with a bachelors degree in Visual Communications and Design.

As a designer, she believes it to be as essential a role for her to be creating a visual experience as it is to produce a beautifully considered end product. Whilst specialising in illustration, Silje holds a strong passion for the printed object; being from book and layout design to the print process itself. For she has the opinion that so much can be achieved by working outside of the screen and recognising the tactility within the project you are creating.

Currently Silje is acting as the lead Graphic designer and marketing coordinator for JB Hunter.  With industry experience from acting as a Production Intern with renowned Darlinghurst based Letterpress Studio, The Distillery, Silje also has gained professional knowledge through her nine month internship as the Graphic Design Intern at Maitland Regional Art Gallery. As well as freelance projects completed for a number of clients, including Maitland City Council, The University of Newcastle and the Stronger than Fiction International Documentary Film Festival, Silje has a professional and efficient work ethic, always striving to supply a creative solution to any design need.
