Tylor Macmillan is a designer and artist living and working in Vancouver, Canada. His work is a cool hybrid between drawing and graphic design where his one-page creations become neatly composed formations of illustrations and graphic icons.
Throughout his work, one of Tylor’s focuses is how the mediums he uses interact with experimental printing processes. This means the sharp, cartoon aesthetic to the different components is offset wonderfully by the grainy texture and tone of Tylor’s chosen printing method. This adds another dimension to his posters and zines, and elevates them above doodle territory.
The symbols and icons Tylor creates are full of pop culture references that hark back to old video games, familiar toys and the internet. As a result the visual language he’s created feels familiar but still cryptic enough to engage viewers.
