  1. Lydia Nichols

    1 / 6

    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.

    See more of Lydia Nichols’ on her website and Dribbble page.

  2. Steve Simpson

    1 / 4

    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. Continuously re-drawing until a balance of aesthetics, key brief considerations and client satisfaction have been realized.”

    Every piece of work in his portfolio leaves me stunned with amazement, so head on over to see more…

  3. Robert Ryan a.k.a. Mister Rob

    1 / 3

    Robert is based in trendy East London, a hub of graffiti art and creative goings on. Mister Rob has has his illustrations appear on all sorts of items, from cushions to vases to umbrellas. His style is very adaptable as it is usually a carefully chosen limited colour palette (often one colour), used to  create a simple, decorative style with hand drawn typography. I’m a fan!
