Hey. I’m the Junior Integrated Designer at The Behaviours Agency. I started off as an apprentice and now, over two years on, I’m still here. A passion of mine is Game Of Thrones Illustration!  

I’ve been selling my illustrations on my Etsy shop for a few years now. I have created these on Adobe Illustrator and Procreate for iPad, but most of what I sell on my shop is vector artwork that I have created on Adobe Illustrator.

WHERE IT BEGAN

I have always done a lot of drawing and I started digital art in 2013 when I started college and began to learn Adobe illustrator. It quickly became my focus and I gradually started to give it more and more of my time.

For my final project in college, I was able to do whatever I wanted and I chose minimalist movie posters. I produced a collection of 20 posters is this style and put a selection of them on show for our end of year exhibition.

I developed my style along with my software knowledge for years. Taking hours a day to create illustrations came easily as it was something I enjoyed and got a lot of pride from the results of my work.

STICKERS

During the time that I was getting into digital illustration, I took care to not lose the pen and paper illustration that I grew up loving. Creating stickers was a great outlet and a fun way to explore another style of illustration.

The sticker community around the world is an awesome thing to be a part of and a great outlet to develop a noticeable style. I recently re-visited stickers, using both pen-drawn art and digital art I had drawn on Procreate for iPad Pro.

EMTYDESIGN

I set up a shop on Etsy a few years ago after months of people telling me that I should. I then had an outlet for my vector artwork and found that there were lots of people around the world that enjoyed my work as much as I did and wanted a piece to frame in their own home.

INFLUENCE ON MY WORK AT THE BEHAVIOURS AGENCY

Being a developed Illustrator is a major asset to my every day work at The Behaviours Agency. The quality and pace that I can work at in creating bespoke vector artwork is a huge benefit to my work, it allows me to bring to life some ambitious ideas and get them done in a good time to a high standard. My drawing skills come in handy when coming up with ideas and adding a hand-drawn look to designs. And simply having a thorough knowledge of Adobe Illustrator helped me reach the same level of understanding in other Adobe programs.

You can see parts of my work throughout our work pages. Some of my favourite work can be found in our case study on RUBIK's brand design.
