One of the best parts of this job is finding out that a brilliant creative featured on the site has picked up work as a direct result of that article. Sometimes we find that out by way of an email, or bumping into someone in the pub, but at OFFSET 2014 it was great to hear Sarah Mazzetti namecheck us from the main stage.
The Bologna-born, Milan-based illustrator was on the site way back in 2012 and her bold, fun and charming visual language has continued to make commissions of all shapes and sizes sing. Whether she’s turning her super-talented hands to editorial illustration, posters, book cover design or the entire identity for the Green Man festival – taking in print, the website and way finding at the event itself – Sarah’s work continues to impress and inspire us, as well as just making us smile.
