A year or so ago we came across an exceptionally talented young illustrator with a beautiful portfolio. We proceeded, as we do when excited by such stunning work, to describe Sam Brewster as someone who had it all, even good looks (although for the record, we did mention this might not be true).
Since then Sam’s client list has extended to include names such as Creative Review, The Financial Times, Ted Baker and a whole host of others. The elements of Sam’s style that first attracted our attention –including his enthusiasm for the odd visual pun and a bold colour palette integrated with textured line work – all remain, only now his skill feels even more refined, allowing him to instinctively sense what our eyes want to gorge on and how best to present us with these visual feasts.
So why not fill up on some of the illustration Sam has propelled into the world since we first introduced him.
