Shadow Shapes is simply that. A simple concept using colour as its subject. Shadows are intrinsically understood by humans and I find it can give an illustration meaning.

I'm a freelance designer, illustrator and art director usually based in London but often working remotely as I travel the world. I love working with interesting brands and have experience creating brand identities, campaign art direction and illustration. Past Clients include All Star Lanes, Die Zeit, American Express, Tishman Speyer, Brewhouse & Kitchen and more. Colour is my favourite.
