    Mike McQuade: Bon Appétit – Google cafeteria redesign

Illustration: New site, same quality from editorial maestro Mike McQuade

Posted by Rob Alderson,

Shockingly it’s been more than a year since we last checked in with Chicago-based designer and illustrator Mike McQuade. He’s launched a shiny new website since then, but his effortless eye for top-notch editorial illustration has remained remarkably consistent. Few people could take an article about Google’s cafeteria redesign and produce accompanying images which are equally interesting to look at and communicative, but Mike is a master at juggling these two (sometimes contrasting) requirements. Given that skill set it’s no real surprise that he’s a favourite of both The New York Times and Wired art direction teams, providing heavyweight visuals which complement the respective publications’ content to perfection.
