Every week, UnderPinned puts a spotlight on two freelancers whose work we believe deserves a special mention. If you’d like to apply to be one of our Freelancers of the Week and be on our Showcase, make a portfolio on our Virtual Office!


Careen Latoya, Writer

I am an author of two books and am also a poet and spoken word artist. My first book was published in 2015 and I have been performing for more than 10 years. In addition, I host and plan events, which started in 2018 and have recently begun the journey of offering publishing services.

Sophie Standing, Illustrator 

I am an Illustrator and Designer, specialising in Human sciences, with a passion to improve communication and understanding of wellbeing through illustration. I work in collaboration with a number of health-related professionals to create visual content in the form of ‘graphic medicine’ books, research reports, websites and apps to help people understand health topics in an engaging and accessible way. I have created 5 ‘graphic medicine’ novels on topics such as Pain, Trauma, Autism, Anxiety and Forgiveness, of which I design the layout, information placement and illustrations.
