Looking through Jeff Östberg’s portfolio is like looking at the world with a veil of warm sunshine over your eyes. Jeff lives and works in Stockholm, and the separation of colour in his work is lovely as creamy tones wash over scenes and people in simple landscapes. Creating a mix of commercial and personal work it’s great to see how Jeff’s style translates into different briefs with his soft lines and shapes managing to make an impact despite their mellowness. This roundness to his work gives the narratives within his illustrations a familiarity that only enhances their clarity and beauty.
