Nina Cosford’s work is charming and playful. Her vibrant use of color and expressive mark-making fill everyday scenes with beauty and intrigue. Her illustrations appeal to children and adults alike and easily translate across advertising, education, and publishing.
Not long after she graduated from Kingston University, Cosford’s love of travel and architecture led to a series of pop-up accordion travel guides with Walker Books. Meanwhile, HBO noticed one of Cosford’s personal projects inspired by their hit television show Girls and commissioned her work to promote the show’s next season. Since, she has worked with the Scouts, The Foundling Museum, and Nokia while her work as been in publications as varied as Bloomberg Businessweek and Marie Clare.
Frances Lincoln Publishers released Cosford’s most recent book series on May 7. The first two illustrated biographies of exceptional females—Virginia Woolf and Jane Austen—will be followed by an additional title on Coco Chanel in September.

Leah Goren is a NYC-based illustrator and surface designer. Her patterns feature soft representations of people, florals and geometrics. Her color palettes are unexpected, making her portfolio a treat to sift through – you never know what you’ll find next! In additional to her own product range, Goren’s patterns have translated into numerous partnerships with brands including Anthropologie, Land of Nod, Evian and Frankie Magazine. Her work maintains a consistent and unique voice across all the products she touches, from scarves to editorial illustrations to dresses to paper products and soap packaging. Her portfolio is a shining example of how one artist’s voice can successfully span across a variety of media and applications. I can’t wait to see what she’ll do next!
