An illustrator who works under the moniker of Mr William from Santiago, Chile sent me in these beautiful illustrations. As a designer he’s passionate about the fashion and cultural iconography of the 1950’s which gives his designs a certain elegance, a nostalgia for hat once was. What’s most striking about Mr Williams illustrations is his use of subtle collage techniques and use of colour and pattern which is rich. bright and bold.
This is design at its most and clever; simple and elegant, a design aesthetic that demands good technical ability yet wears it lightly, has a freshness and sunny disposition.
