The Artworks are delighted to introduce our new illustrator Rob Ball! Rob has a brilliantly original style, combining clean graphic lines with his humorous take on the world. He has a unique ability to capture an individual’s personality and get this across through the clever way in which he designs each illustration with attention paid to every tiny detail.

Orange recently commissioned Ben Scruton to illustrate their employee guidelines. Ben's brief was to "make people smile when they land on each page, at the same time as clearly communicating what the content on that page is about." Ben's playful characters did the job perfectly.
