المؤسس عثمان

Working in a bold, graphical style, Paperface – creates illustrations that are punchy and expressive, yet light-hearted in tone and thoroughly charming. Her background in graphic garida design means she’s adept at reducing clutter and ensuring that the core message hits home in an instant, knows her way around an agency brief and understands the creative process.

Growing up in Grantham, Abi has been drawn to illustration since childhood. She received a degree in graphic design from Leeds University, before working in London and New York, later returning to the UK and settling in Yorkshire. Her time in the US is a big source of inspiration, with the landscape, culture, people, food and wildlife across the country feeding into her personal work.
