i'm in love with british illustrator ben newman. he has a particularly powerful way with color, shape, texture and composition, and his work nods to midcentury influences like charley harper, jim flora, and saul bass that i am always drawn toward. that said, his work still feels fresh and modern. my favorite? the public display of affection sign based on a challenge to create a sign that you think is missing from the world. ben, this is my pda to you. see more of his work here.
