I absolutely love Ben Newman’s gorgeous illustrations that have a beautiful vintage feel to them. I doubt they were created using old printmaking techniques but I’m just going to close my eyes and Imagine Ben working away in a little cottage full of printmaking presses making ornate illustrations full brilliant texture and delicately faded color.
I love Stefan Glerum’s mix of contemporary typography with vintage textures and colors. His illustrations are bold, playful and have a dash of sophistication that you don’t see too often these days. Make sure to check out the last graphic. Not sure what it was originally done for but it would be a great illustration for my next set of business cards.
