Cristian Grossi is a graphic designer, illustrator and fabric designer from Italy. Some of his designs can be very minimal, yet others are intricate and crammed from of details. His vibrant colours and clean vector style line work are what epitomise his visual creations. The abstract nature of his designs can be hypnotic, strange and disturbing, in the best sense of the word.

Award winning Irish illustrator Steve Simpson creates visuals that are so rich with type and colour it hurts.
“Steve takes an organic approach to his projects, blending the disciplines of design and illustration. He spends a great deal of time on construction, shape and problem solving at the pencil stage.
