HOLLEY MAHER

Holley Maher is the Founder and Creative Director behind Wink Wink Paper Co. In 2005, Holley moved to Nashville from her hometown of Manasquan, NJ to study music and pursue a career in songwriting. During a college internship, she was given a crash-course in graphic design, and started her first freelance business after graduating with a degree in Commercial Vocal Performance and Music Business. While running H. Maher Creative, she refined her personal brand and developed her trademark hand lettering and illustration styles. In 2014, Holley transitioned her freelance boutique into an online shop, in order to spend more time on her music career without giving up her love for design and illustration. 

Holley has worked on dozens of album covers, websites, and branding projects over the course of her career as a freelance designer. Her wedding stationery and styling work have been featured in bridal blogs like Green Wedding Shoes and Enchanted Brides, and her wrapping paper was featured on Style Me Pretty. Holley has written and illustrated her own children's book, and has been hired to illustrate and design for Nashville Lifestyles MagazineSXSW, and Comcast/Watchable. Holley was recently recognized as one of the top creative stationers in Middle America by Alive Magazine. She is currently illustrating a children's book called Little Kid, Big City.
