    Kindred Studio: Men’s Health

Kindred Studio gets the perfect balance of pattern, imagery and typography

Posted by Holly Wilkins,

Kindred Studio is the brainchild of independent illustrator, art-director and designer Andrew Fairclough. Since 2004, this guy has cracked out work across print, digital and motion for a wide range of clients across the world including a hell of a lot of editorial. The first thing you notice about his illustrations is the distinctive retro style and the muted colour palette. Andrew really knows how to add texture and half-tone patterns to transport you back a few decades, without forgetting a touch of playfulness. It doesn’t stop there, Andrew has also done a bunch of identity re-vamps and designed look-books for outerwear brand Westbeach. This guy is a machine!
