About Sam Osborne

UK based illustrator and graphic designer with a love of all things brightly-coloured.

I have over 15 years experience as an illustrator and graphic designer both working for myself and working for design and advertising agencies in the UK and across the world. Because I am a freelance illustrator and graphic designer I work across a range of disciplines and markets, including:

• branding and identity
• brochures and websites
• books and magazines
• advertising
• packaging
• merchandise and products
• multimedia and animation

I particularly enjoy working with ethical and socially-minded businesses and not for profit organisations. If you work hard to create a better world, educate people or improve life for others then I’d love to use my skills help you do that.

I also create and produce my own product range including cards, calendars and homewares and sell this both online and in selected high street shops.

When I’m not designing I like to cook, get outdoors, potter in my garden, ride my bright yellow bicycle, visit an art gallery or go and see a gig – the louder and more guitary the better. I try to get to a couple of rugby matches and some motorsport during the year and love a pub quiz. In many ways I was born in the wrong era – I love, and am influenced by, second hand books, mid-century ceramics, colourful 1960s melamine and I often watch old sci-fi movies while I work, Destination Moon is one of my favourites, look it up, you’ll love it!
