Illustrator at Y&R Chicago

Chicago, United States


I am a graphic designer from the Uk who is originally from Leeds but has moved around the country quite a bit (the next plan is to spend some time living abroad hopefully New York or somewhere like that). I left school at 16 and went to Leeds College Of Art & Design (Where I am now a part time lecturer) to study a BTEC in Graphic Design and then a foundation in Visual Communication, before going to Buckinghamshire Chilterns University to study a degree in Graphic Design. Upon completion I stayed in London for another 2 or 3 years and worked for a number of different small design agencies whilst continuing with my own work and freelance projects on the side.

I always start by picking a font I feel fits the brief or works with what I am trying to achieve the piece and then will play around with different page layouts for a while. The next phase is to just bring the piece to life using fineliners to create the illustration. I always work bigger than the finished piece is going to be and scan the illustrations at 1000dpi at 125% so when it is decreased to the actual size it?s very crisp an clean. I think I came to make this kind of work just through my love of drawing, type and design and trying to do something that encompasses all them together.
