Brittany Holloway-Brown is the art director of Marie Claire, where she is responsible for all things visual and for ensuring the brand’s visual voice stays consistent and forward-looking.
Before joining Marie Claire, Brittany held various design lead roles at Vox Media, first at Racked, the Vox Storytelling Team, a group tasked with experimental storytelling, and then as the Design Director of Eater, a food and restaurant network. In this role, she established a brand voice for the storied food brand by creating custom illustrations, expanding its network of freelancers, and art directing its editorial packages, including travel guides, a custom volunteer search engine, and award tentpoles. Eater’s visuals became well-recognized and complimented the brand’s rigorous reporting as it moved into policy, immigration, foodways, and the significant cultural impact of food. In her collaboration with Eater NY, one of the illustrations she commissioned, “Can Paying $50K for PR Still Make a Restaurant Famous?” was selected for American illustration 39.
During her seven-year tenure with Vox, she had many hats, including helping to guide editorial strategy, creating end-to-end experiences, and contributing to the company’s broader design and product goals. In addition, she had the honor of being on the Vox Visual Ethics Committee, a cross-department group tasked with creating a guide to helping all employees make informed and inclusive choices around imagery. Brittany has a Bachelor’s in Illustration from the Maryland Institute College of Art.
She also served as a proud judge for the National Magazine Awards in 2021 and Food Photography Awards for PDN Taste in 2019.
Brittany currently lives in Brooklyn, NY. You can find her on Instagram at @b_h___b.
