Spanish graphic designer and illustrator Aron Vellekoop León currently lives and works in The Netherlands creating geometric, mid-century style illustrations inspired by his adopted home, with colour palettes informed by his native Spain. He’s one of a growing throng of illustrators determined to move away from digital visuals and maintain an aesthetic that draws on traditional print techniques. As a result, his images are awash with muted primary colours, hand-crafted textures and isometrically ordered perspective, lending themselves equally to editorial illustration, strong infographics and slick screen prints. Lovely stuff!
