Weston Wei for the Wall Street Journal

Weston Wei uses his enigmatic brushstrokes for a Wall Street Journal commission.

Weston's latest editorial is a visual journey accompanying an excerpt from American writer Daniel Handler’s (better known as Lemony Snicket) new book.

The piece delves into the poignant journey of a character navigating life with vivid visual hallucinations. Through his art, Weston sought to encapsulate the surreal essence of these haunting visions, blending reality with the fantastical to mirror the character’s tumultuous inner world. His composition isolates the character and is an invitation to step into his shoes.

Iris de Luz for MIZZOU Magazine


Phosphor's Iris de Luz was approached by MIZZOU Magazine, the alumni magazine of the University of Missouri, to illustrate their Spring 2024 cover.

The brief was right up Iris' street: a 'playful and surreal park fantasy world' featuring bright colours, flowers, rolling hills, trees, lots of pattern and the famous St. Louis arch.

Iris' illustration will entice MIZZOU subscribers to read the cover story which features a group of four University of Missouri alumni who are leaders of various parks and greenspace organisations in the city of St. Louis.

Many different photographic elements and some 3D vector shapes make up each piece of Iris' dazzling artwork, including this cover. She spends hours looking at photographs to find the right textures for the job at hand, and says, "I think of them as if they were part of a digital ecosystem where each element, when joined with others, builds a new character".

Take a peek at Iris' portfolio to find more of her digital collages and contact Trina at Phosphor to commission Iris for your next project.

Patrick Boyer for the Buxton International Festival

Dynamic and opulent designs are created by Patrick Boyer for the Buxton International Festival.

Pat worked on a new 2024 program cover, five opera promotions, and a billboard design. Having worked with the client on last year's season, he was well aligned with their aspirations for the art. The design brief was open to interpretation, and the client expressed confidence in Pat's work, stating his previous designs were "spot on." He aimed to maintain the elegance of his past achievements, while introducing alternative compositional elements for a sense of freshness.



Pat explains that the cover, his most recent artwork for the festival, reflects a summer celebration of opera, music, books, and jazz. Ties to the individual operas were welcomed, and the client gave Pat a lot of freedom for a fresh approach -


"I came up with a cover similar to last year's, tying in the elements and performers of the 2024 season, but with a more artistic approach. The individual opera designs were completed early in the season, so there wasn't much information available from the directors. For those, I researched the productions. Some operas, like Carmen, were more modern, serious, and gritty in nature, while others, like La Canterina, required something a little more comical and light."

Katie Ponder’s Art Deco Scenes for Mayfair’s Beaumont Hotel



Katie Ponder has been commissioned to create a glamorous series of artworks for the the five-star Beaumont Hotel in Mayfair, London. Drawing inspiration from the elegant art deco interiors of the hotel, Katie kept things colourful and patterned.



“Initially I started the work using a muted palette but the client was keen to something bright and bold. This led me to the oranges and blues along with a few coffee coloured tones for contrast and I think this worked really well to create a bold statement. The bold colours of the work contrast with the elegant monochrome 1920s décor of the hotel and bring a burst of colour and pattern. The style of the work work is an echo of 1920s style of the Beaumont Hotel – a style I particularly love and often draw inspiration from.”
