    Aron Vellekoop León: The dying of the middle-class dream (detail)

Slick mid-century inspired illustration from Spanish creative Aron Vellekoop León

Posted by James Cartwright,

Spanish graphic designer and illustrator Aron Vellekoop León currently lives and works in The Netherlands creating geometric, mid-century style illustrations inspired by his adopted home, with colour palettes informed by his native Spain. He’s one of a growing throng of illustrators determined to move away from digital visuals and maintain an aesthetic that draws on traditional print techniques. As a result, his images are awash with muted primary colours, hand-crafted textures and isometrically ordered perspective, lending themselves equally to editorial illustration, strong infographics and slick screen prints. Lovely stuff!
