Staff Profile | Holly McCauley
We love our team! We’re so lucky to have an army of talented people working behind the scenes who help make the Olli Ella world go ‘round. Holly McCauley is not a regular Mum, she's a cool Mum. Our amazing Graphic Designer and Creative Direction guru, Holly, is without a doubt the most fashionable person at our Byron Bay HQ. She has her very own art gallery, is the queen of nailing effortless chic and her laidback Bangalow abode is the stuff dreams are made of. All of this, while being a total boss-mum to her almost-too-cute-to-be-real daughter, Della - who starred in our most recent campaign with Lisa Sorgini!
How long have you worked at Olli Ella?
I started at Olli Ella in August last year.
What is your role?
My official role is graphic designer, but I also help plan and style all the Olli Ella shoots - my role is to make sure that all things Olli Ella are looking great!
What does a day in the life of Holly look like?
It starts with an early wake up and rushed brekky with my partner and toddler, then we head down the road for coffee before work. If Della goes to daycare, I head to the office where I'll work on a whole bunch of things, from planning the next shoot, booking models, scouting locations to designing newsletters, swing tags, signage and bits and bobs for the website. I always eat lunch at my desk, which is so bad, but I'm a freelancer, so every hour counts! After we pick Della up, we usually go down to the beach for a quick swim or to the pub for a quick beer before heading home to cook dinner and put Della to bed, which is always too late! Then we have a wine and listen to a record before crawling into bed.

What's your favourite thing to do on the weekends here in Byron?
Our weekends are usually some combination of:
- Going on long drives to the outer regions of the Northern Rivers
- Pub visits
- Dinners with friends
- Car boot sales
You're a stylish Mama - what are your go-to pieces?
Haha, I'm not too sure about that! I'll usually be in a throw-on dress or a pair of high-waisted pants and tee. My go-tos are the pieces that I feel good in. I try to strike a balance between looking somewhat pulled together while also being practical and comfy enough for me to wear all day. A basket is always in my car for throwing in beach stuff, groceries and nappies - I love the Mamachari.
