I dare you, no wait, DOUBLE dare you to check out Anna Lomax’s work and not feel brighter, bouncier and better about things in general. Describing herself as a “maker and collector” Anna graduated from Brighton University in 2007, but her illustration degree was merely the stepping stone to a set design and art direction practice defined by a flair for executing off-the-wall ideas with consummate skill.
With inspirations ranging from Pop Art to poundshops, her talents have attracted the attentions of clients both commercial (Nike, Becks, Selfrdiges) and editorial (YCN, Creative Review and Viewpoint). It’s no easy task to pick out just a few projects but her work for Wonderland, her latest Pool Party series for Pick Me Up and her bonkers, baffling Body Builder project stand out in particular.
What’s that? You’re not convinced unless she does a super-cool music video? Well see below then hombre, Anna is the real deal.
