Ali Hooten, the founder of Coit Creative, is an illustrator, surface designer and educator who can be found cosy at home drawing or climbing, skiing, and playing in the mountains. Many of her illustrations are inspired by the wild places she spends so much time in and advocating for around the Rocky Mountain West of America.
Drawing from a past career as an Architect and University instructor, Ali brings a level of conceptual thinking and technical abilities to every project. She loves creating new work and seeing her art come to life on products. She is especially drawn to minimal and vector-based artwork, simplifying larger scenes into hand-drawn shapes and forms.
