Comments Off on Andy Smith IllustrationTypography


Andy Smith kind of says what he has to say about himself much better than I could. And he also recently put up a new site with several new examples of his often hand rendered typography. So I will let him speak for himself:

“Andy Smith studied illustration at the University of Brighton and the Royal College of Art, London. Graduating in 1998 he quickly established a client list of advertising, publishing and editorial clients including Orange, Mercedes, McDonalds, The Guardian, Expedia, Sony, Vodafone, Random House and Penguin Books, directing Run London a commercial for Nike in 2000. His work combines illustration and typography to create images that have humour, energy and optimism and all are executed with a handmade, hand-printed, tactile feel. Quirky characters find themselves in absurd situations, often with a large piece of lettering nearby. When not producing commercial work for clients Andy can be found in the studio screen printing books and posters about Fatty, the Target People and the Hot Dog. He has exhibited in the UK, USA, France and Australia. He lives and works by the sea in Hastings, East Sussex. His favourite colour is blue.”

Illustrator Andy Smith has some really great hand-illustrated typography at his website. Here is his bio pulled directly from his site:

Since graduation from London’s Royal College of Art, Andy Smith has worked for many worldwide clients in advertising, print, publishing and animation.  His work combines illustration and typography to create images that have humour, energy and optimism. Despite often being created digitally his graphics have the tactile feel of the hand made and hand printed. His time is split between commercial work and self initiated projects such as silkscreen printed books and posters that are available from his website and have been exhibited in the UK, France, USA and Australia.  Andy has won D&AD, AOI and Creative Circle awards  for his work on advertising campaigns, book jackets and his animation and direction of ‘Run London’ a commercial for Nike.  His work is also stocked in outlets such as such as Playlounge, Magma (London) and Colette (Paris). Andy lives and works in Hastings, East Sussex.

He is currently represented by Tiphaine Illustration.
