Their styles work so well together, with their fun colours and simple shapes. It’ll be interesting where their brand will take them next!

  4. Frieke Verle

    Frieke Verle is an illustrator based in Bruges, Belgium. She creates some excellent editorial pieces, and I really admire her visual style and approach. It’s quite gritty, full of textures and various techniques. Do take a look at her Tumblr, or her blog which is packed with various projects and one-offs.
