There are some nice examples of squeaky clean graphic design work in the portfolio of Draught Associates. I wonder if they are called that because they are drinking buddies. Just curious.

“Once upon a time there was a Wellington based graphic designer and illustrator, whose fanciful works were; sometimes so clear and simple that they were childlike, sometimes so complex and challenging they were inexplicable, and sometimes so fresh and original that they were perhaps not even designs at all. But he did have an adorable komodo dragon pup. And he tied his pants up with bits of string and dental floss, which is surprisingly strong…”

…and he would call himself Joel Cocks.

Chances are that if you frequent the design/art blogosphere you have stumbled upon the work of David Bray at one point or another. His work has appeared numerous times on FFFFound and he has worked for some very large clients. He has kept busy exhibiting this year and you can see the fruits of his labor here from his exhibition the Stolenspace gallerey at Let’s Hit the Streets. There is also a more comprehensive listing of the works, with larger images at the actual Stolenspace website. You can also view a little more his his work at Pvuk.

His work focuses primarily on the female form but looks almost as though it was plucked from a Fashion-illustration book. It is the simplicity of his work that I really enjoy. I also love the way he renders the hair of his subjects.

About the young Kate Moross:
“I am a 22 year old London based creative maestro. Practicing as an Illustrator and Graphic designer but would hate to narrow myself to those fields alone. I also run ISO & Isomorph Records which you can read about here. I have a fascination with three sided shapes, illegible typography, and freeform lettering.”

Pretty amazing for someone just starting out.

His intricate pen work explores the energy of street culture through densely informative drawings of cityscapes.”
