I have worked with Lyndal Frollano for the past five years in my capacity as an editor, and without doubt she is the most talented art and creative director working in Australia today. With her years experience at the world's foremost fashion magazines and a background in fine arts, Lyndal brings to every project an unrivalled artistic eye and the skills necessary to craft the finest of publications, whether print or digital. Working together on projects for Westfield, Myer, the Art Gallery of South Australia and Les Arts Decoratifs, Lyndal is a joy to collaborate with and any client or publication is immensely lucky, as I have been, to work with her.

Lyndal created the art direction and graphic design for the beginnings of KITX brand. She was very clear and innovative in her approach and always delivered to brief on time and on brand.

We have appointed Lyndal as the Art Director for all communications for Jan Logan. Lyndal was instrumental in creating our best catalogue to date (which we produce annually) and continually provides work of the highest quality across all traditional and digital platforms. Lyndal is a pleasure to work with and always produces work that is on time and on budget.
Angus Logan, Managing Director, Jan Logan
I discovered Lyndal's talents when her and I worked together many years ago at VOGUE Australia in the art department of what was then called the Promotions Department at Conde Nast Publications. I had just come back from working in an advertising agency in Tokyo and both of us were in a holding pattern work wise.
Lyndal was dynamic and full of energy, I immediately knew this young woman was a talent.
A year later I was offered the Creative Director's role to launch the Australian version of the Hearst title Harper's BAZAAR, I immediately knew I had my right hand in the art department - Lyndal Hillary.
We worked together on the launch of Harper's BAZAAR and produced arguably the most successful Fashion Magazine ever published in Australia.
I left to become the editor of belle magazine and observed Lyndal's very graceful graduation from art director to a powerful, convicted and ideas driven creative director of the title we both loved so much, her tenure at BAZAAR brought a youthful modernity to the magazine, Lyndal developed new photographers from all over the world and continued the legacy of BAZAAR as a design and fashion bible in the Australian market.
Now as a hugely successful creative director working for herself, Lyndal conquers new heights with her dedication to design excellence, meeting briefs, deadlines and working clearly to budgets both small and large.
I consider myself immensely privileged to have worked with Lyndal. It has enriched my career immensely.
Eric Matthews , Communications Manager, HERMÈS Australia
I worked with Lyndal Frollano in her capacity as Creative Director for Harper’s Bazaar for over eight years and her ascent through the magazine reflected talent, hard work and an amazing vision. Her work was always modern, yet still classically beautiful, and she was very much responsible for challenging the traditional definitions of style and design, helping to build the great reputation Bazaar still holds today. On a personal note, she has also helped me design my own site, helping to create an image that still feels fresh years later.
Eugenie Kelly, Deputy Editor, Beauty & Features Director, Harper’s Bazaar Australia
I knew of Lyndal from working with her on editorial shoots with Harpers Bazaar many moons ago. For our brands, I wanted to incorporate her fashion influence in our branding for small projects that we use to showcase our business. Recently we had a beautiful magazine produced by Lyndal that was history of our thirty year old business - she captured the right images that read like a fairytale, her attention to detail and sharp eye tells the story we wanted to share with others. The copy and images engulfed me.
Every time I give this magazine to our corporate partners both locally & internationally the response is the same - "Wow, this is really amazing work" - thank you Lyndal I adore your beautiful work.
Renya Xydis , Editorial Hairdresser / Creative Director, The Valonz Group
We have used Lyndal across a number of projects, Lyndal understands our consumer, her work is beautifully polished and distinct.
Lyndal’s experience & understanding of the branding & design industry speaks volumes. Her work is executed with professionalism & ease, it’s a relief to work with someone who just ‘gets it’
When we wanted to re brand our nail polish Miss Frou Frou, there was no question that Lyndal was the right fit for our consumer - working with Lyndal was such a effortless experience. Always bringing to the table unique ideas, Lyndal interpreted the brief to perfection - we were thrilled with end results and so were our consumers & wholesalers - it took our product to the next level.
Juliet Cummins, General Manager, The Valonz Group
I am grateful to have benefited from Lyndal’s inspiring creativity and business acumen. As well as having an exceptional eye and ability to make images flow together beautifully, Lyndal is extremely efficient and commercially focused. I value her ideas and recommendations highly and her talent for creating stylish and unique brand and marketing collateral that always garner excellent results. I greatly appreciate the fact that Lyndal accepts diverse commissions because by practising in many fields of art and design, each field highly benefits from her experience in the others.
Katie Graham, Photographer & artist
I have had the pleasure of working with Lyndal Frollano for over ten years and can recommend her without hesitation. We first worked together on Harper's Bazaar magazine where she was Creative Director, bringing her superior design and typography skills to Australia's leading fashion title. We then worked together on Myer Emporium and all the Westfield fashion titles and Lyndal's work on these magazines was nothing short of outstanding. These custom titles are complex with many stakeholders involved and Lyndal's capacity to deliver consumer-benchmarked design and fashion shoots took them to another level. In this time, we relaunched all the titles and Lyndal's superior creative skills delivered truly memorable issues, many of which went on to win AMA and Publish Australia Awards as well as Pearl Awards in New York. Her abilities are unusual as she can seamlessly focus on detail as well as deliver a larger creative vision that is always on brand but includes the surprise and delight factor. Her contacts with Australian and international photographers were invaluable and she always managed to deliver amazing work from her shoots. Lyndal works quickly and to brief and always meets deadlines. It's been a true privilege to work with someone of Lyndal's calibre and I look forward to another ten years.
