I am an award-winning visual storyteller who creates attractive and relatable images to visualise and explain values, ideas, and concepts in a fun and simple way. I bring advanced technical skills and a sharp, bold, and playful style with a Russian Avantgarde flavour to bring brands, characters, stories, and feelings to life. With 15+ years’ broad creative experience and a Master’s-level education in graphic design, I understand the design context and branding value of illustration, and can speak the same language as commissioning directors and graphic design teams. I work at pace and deliver great results whether creating infographics or building and communicating a brand’s visual style. I was recently featured in Steven Heller’s 'Illustration Idea Book: Inspiration from 50 Masters', which presents respected approaches from global illustrators working across the field. Apart from commissioned work I run a few self-initiated projects and am engaged in my fine art pursuits, including printmaking and painting. My work has been shown both in group and solo exhibitions internationally. Key Skills: editorial and corporate illustration, illustration for apps and adverts, illustrative branding, 2D animation and infographics. My clients include: CNN, The Wall Street Journal, Financial Times, ITV, Channel 5, Novartis, Public Health England, NHS, Migration Museum, Babylon Health, Zappistore, McKesson, The National Lottery, Odeon Cinemas, Bluewater, University of the Arts London.
