I have always loved illustration, but I always thought that design and illustration were two separate disciplines, performed by two separate groups of professionals. I still think there is some truth to this, but I am also starting to question the division of these crafts. What happens when a designer applies her skill and training to illustration, or vice-versa? A certain style has emerged, that for lack of better words, is called, “designy-illustration.” I enjoy practicing it every chance I get.
The two illustrations below were created for a non-profit organization, called Denver Food Rescue. The organization is committed to increasing health equity outcomes in Denver by increasing access to healthy foods in low income areas.
