I fell completely in love with the gorgeous work of illustrator and hand-lettering artist Kate Forrester as soon as I stumbled upon it. Her striking and versatile style has earned her an extensive list of international clients and diverse projects, including book jackets, packaging, greeting cards, advertisements, billboards, and much more. Kate combines dynamic hand-lettering with lovely illustrations to create flowing, organic images and often explores new & exciting mediums including wood, chocolates, tattoos, laser-cut paper illustrations—and even wedding cake!

Kate is based in the UK and her impressive list of clients includes Tiffany NYC, Victoria’s Secret, Random House, Penguin Books, Crate and Barrel, The Guardian, Little Brown, Walker Books, Moonstruck Chocolates and many more.

Hi there! I’m so thrilled to be the newest contributor here – I hope we’ll become fast friends. I thought I’d tell you just a little bit about myself and then dive right in to my first artist. I’m Bryna – a freelance illustrator, photographer and yoga teacher based in Portland, Oregon. I have a particular love for surface design, and that’s what I’ll cover here on the blog. When I first decided to pursue illustration, I didn’t really know all the potential ways my artwork could be sold and used by other companies. Once I discovered the world of surface design, I felt like the possibilities were truly endless! We are lucky as illustrators, that our work has so many applications. I’m really looking forward to sharing with you some of the most exciting surface design work out there in hopes that it may inspire new dreams for your own work. If you have any comments or suggestions, I’d love to connect with you, so don’t be shy! Feel free to email, instagram or tweet me. Alright, enough about me, let’s dive into the wonderful world of surface design, shall we?

It’s rare, but really exciting, to find an artist who is as prolific as she is passionate about creating patterns. Enter Kendra Dandy, illustrator and pattern designer. Her instagram feed boasts colorful patterns featuring fruit, makeup and girls in fancy hairdos with fun shades. Her distinctive patterns have appeared on lipstick packaging for Anthropologie, beautiful silk scarves, and tote bags for Baba Souk. Any surface she can paint on, she likely has (including a french fry box!). The way she layers patterns together makes her work instantly recognizable and memorable. I can’t wait to see what she’ll do next!

Take a look at her portfolio, and be sure to follow her instagram for more juicy patterns!

This packaging for Flour Pot Bakery by Sara Nicely grabbed our attention… oh so subtly. Simple, beautiful typography! What’s not to love?

In Sara’s words: The Flour Pot Bakery Pot strives for a healthy diet with high quality, natural ingredients and environmentally friendly practices. This identity system was designed to convey the unique and handmade qualities of the bakery. The hand-drawn type was inspired by the wiry Christmas lights arranged throughout the dining area. I chose to design a menu that could be carried home without hassle. An alternate menu for lunch is available for guests who dine in.

Ok, does this packaging not make you smile? So fun and cheerful! 8th Continent Soymilk’s website is just as charming (with recipes, to boot!). I *think* it was designed by art director Erin Butner. (Please correct me if I’m wrong.) And the illustrations are by Ben Javens, who is a must-see illustrator.

Phin & Phebes Ice Cream packaging is so whimsical and fun, it looks good enough to eat! Designed by Jefferson Cheng, it was inspired by the chalkboard wall at the test kitchen of Phin & Phebes where they listed and sketched out all of their ice cream flavor offerings. The ice cream (and packaging) is now available at certain Whole Foods stores in the Northeast… I wish they’d come near me. :)

Designed by Jefferson Cheng
Art direction: Crista Freeman & Jess Eddy

We love to see products that are well-designed and — bonus! — use illustration and unique typography. Who doesn’t? They stand out from the pack and can surprise you and make you smile. This packaging is no exception. In fact, it has a smile built in. Botanical Bakery out of Napa Valley was designed by David Brier for DBD International.
