My teachers helped me develop the perspective of a life-long learner and a strong work ethic which has helped me long after I graduated.”

Alumnus James K. Hindle ’06, has been working as a freelance illustrator and graphic designer since graduating from Montserrat College of Art.

As an illustrator, Hindle has done editorial work for magazines and newspapers, narrative illustration for picture books, and self-published mini-comics. His illustration clients have included: The New York Times, The Boston Globe, Roaring Brook Press, NYU Press, Portland Mercury, Seattle’s The Stranger, Narratively.com, Corporate Knights and others.

As a designer, he has worked at several design agencies in Massachusetts, and also spent three years as the in-house designer for a national non-profit organization. He is currently an Art Director at a creative studio in Northampton, MA.
