Graphic Designer Makes Illustrations That Are Simply Enjoyable

Graphic designer Jane Bowyer uses simple shapes and lines to compose computer illustrations that are a pop of color – something between a child’s artwork and a graphic poster.

“My work is split between design and illustration,” said Bowyer in an interview with Lecture in Progress. “Personally, I’ve never seen them as two separate disciplines but that’s the way the industry and clients view them, so I’ve had to make a distinction between the two when it comes to pricing. But I approach design and illustration briefs in the same way.”

“I think I knew from a young age that I wanted to do something in the arts and I’ve always felt more comfortable working behind the scenes than standing center stage,” she recalled. “It was actually my high school art teacher, Mr Lee, who suggested graphic design as a career option. He sold it to me as ‘being able to make posters for a living’. I’ve always said if the design thing doesn’t work out I’d make an excellent wedding DJ.”

Her Instagram page, where she shares her creations, is slowly but surely, gaining momentum, proving that one day she might actually make a living out of poster making.
