Daniella Germain is a Melbourne-based freelance illustrator and graphic designer. Daniella specialises in water colour illustration, stationery and book design, and product/packaging design.

Daniella graduated in 2010 at RMIT with a Bachelor of Design (Communication Design) after taking the plunge and leaving her career in behaviour research (she also has a degree in Psychology).

Daniella fortuitously fell into illustration and book design with the publication of one of her university projects: My Abuela’s Table (published in 2011 by Hardie Grant Books), an illustrated collection of her Mexican grandmother’s recipes.

Daniella has been freelancing ever since, working for clients such as Greenigo, Elk Accessories, Country Style Magazine, Ashdene Manufacturing, Medibank, Sow ‘n Sow, Little Hare, Hardie Grant Publishing, Smith Street Books, Tea Bar tea and Koko Black, to name a few.
She creates artwork for product packaging, stationery, books, magazine editorials, websites, commissions, wedding invitations. She also designs logos and is an experienced book designer, which encompasses book covers and publication layouts.
Throughout 2021, Daniella has actively collaborated with Greenigo to develop a new range of greeting cards and gift tags (a collection named ‘Bush Greetings’) , which are successfully selling across the retail marketplace throughout Australia. 

In this exclusive collection, her illustrations were inspired by the beauty of Australia’s natural landscape and countryside. Daniella has captured the texture, colour and uniqueness of Australian flora and fauna with fine line work combined with bold colour.

Daniella’s dream is to one day live in the Victorian countryside with some chickens and maybe an alpaca or two, and enjoy the serenity of country life.
