Matte Stephens

You are most likely no stranger to the illustrations of Matte Stephens. He has worked for many large clients, including Herman Miller, NPR, and Chronicle Books. A fan of vintage-esque illustrations, I am captivated by his muted palette, lively scenes, and knack for design. I am impressed that Matte uses colors that can become so easily muddled – but I don’t think that they are. The color adds to his aesthetic of a flattened space, supported by bold shape design and crisp lines.

All images via his blog. He also has an Etsy that does very well.
