    Philadelphia-based Lydia Nichols is a illustrator, typographer, designer, and teacher (and anthropomorphizer). After an intern at Pixar, Ms Nichols started freelancing. Some of her notable clients including Bloomberg Businessweek, Chronicle Books, Google UK and MailChimp. She has also taught at MICA and Moore, as well a providing a class for Skillshare.

    Squeezing the best out of illustrator and photoshop, Ms Nichols’ work is both lucid and tactile. Her illustrations are clear, sprightly and guaranteed to put a smile on your face, if not, just a simper. Child-friendly too, her illustrations use subdued colour and have a Mary Blair/UPA charm to them.

    Portland-based Richard Perez is a graphic designer, illustrator and captain of design studio Skinny Ships. His ever-joyous vector-style artwork manipulates colours and shapes until they come alive. He then sprinkle a little bit of noise and texture, giving them an irresistible rustic feel.

    Finnish born illustrator Kustaa Saksi has applied her ideas to advertising, installations, murals, pattern design for products, and textiles for clothing, as well as tapestries. Ms Saksi recently collaborated with Finnish design company, Marimekko, on their spring 2015 home collection. From what I have seen already, the collection features some charming retro-inspired pieces.

    Kustaa Saksi’s work ranges from the absurd to ethereal. Combining organic shapes and wild colours she creates rather unique landscapes, that are in equal parts inviting and frightening. As mentioned in the introduction, Ms Saksi’s has worked in a tremendous range of fields, crossing multiple disciplines, all the while doing it for some of the most renowned brands including Nike, Vespa, Swarovski, Microsoft, Lacoste, and Issey Miyake.

    A good collection of Kustaa Saksi’s art can be found on the Hugo & Marie website.

    I wish I could tell you how I first stumbled on Leo Gibran’s work, but I simply cannot remember. However, that should not stop me from singing his praises. Mr Gibran is a working illustrator, based in são paulo, Brazil, predominately in fields of advertising and editorial.

    Mr Gibran’s styles can be divide, somewhat neatly, into two columns. The first is composed of expressive brush work and emotive colour washes, and the second is his more geometric vector work. Both use quirky and dynamic shapes but his vector work, for me, lack the fervour that he seems to effortless have with a brush.

    Check out more of Leo Gibran’s illustrations on his website and blog.

    Mike Wrobel is a graphic designer and illustrator originally from France, but based in Tokyo. At his design company Moshi Studio Mr Wrobel produces everything from editorial illustration to designing fabrics for Georgian armchairs (though not in a style you may assume).

    Mr Wrobel’s work only recently caught my attention when I stumbled on his amazing Game Of Thrones 80/90s Era Characters series. The expressions of the characters, and their alternative lifestyles are spot on. Much his personal work references pop-culture. His attention to detail and punchy colours really bring his vector illustrations to life.

    See more of Mike Wrobel’s work on his tumblr, and check out his print on his Society6 page.

    I will leave you with this quote from Mr Wrobel, for no other reason than I really like it,

    “I grew up at a wonderful time when X-Files was THE show we couldn’t miss, Grunge music made us wear ripped jeans, and we still could find toys in cereal boxes…..”
