A big pat on the back to the phenomenally talented illustrator Adam Hancher whose newly-updated website proves that the ability to illustrate wondrously can make even the most mundane things dreamy, serene and beautiful. With his use of bright colours and instantly likeable characters, Adam miraculously strips banking of its stereotypically dull exterior, brings colour to otherwise deep articlesfor the likes of Link Magazine and best of all sends you into floaty daydreams just imagining the possibilities of the perfect world in which each illustration represents.
But it’s not just us singing his praises. Attracting a client list practically bursting at the seams with both diversity and big names (try GQ,The Times, HSBC and even the Church of London for some name-dropping), I think it is safe to say Adam Hancher is very very good.
