The year I discovered Sagmeister


Handsome Frank

Handsome Frank is an illustrator agency – (which I stumbled across via The Guardian’s Spotter’s Guide to Buildings via Emma Kelly!).

A wide selection of illustrators – to be expected but they also have a nice blog of work that has been commissioned by the likes of Esquire, Wallpaper etc..etc…

Work featured is by Emma Kelly, David Sparshott and Thibaud Herem.
