New Artist Series Design from Brian Yap!
launched a new artist series iPhone and iPad bamboo case design today
by prolific designer, illustrator, creative director, and
digital-imagery specialist Brian Yap! We’re so happy to be working with
this self-described “graphics jack-of-all-trades” and his “almost
obsessive work ethic.”
Brian resides in Edwardsville, Illinois and is a two-time Davey Award winner who has also won awards from The Communicator, the St. Louis Addy’s, and the St. Louis Egoist, among other organizations. His work is showcased yearly in the Famous and Fictional show at the Mad art gallery in St. Louis. He’s built up a personal technique using ink pens, scanning, and Adobe Ideas for iPad, and his work often closely calls upon screen printing. An appreciation for music posters contributes to his notable style.
Fun and daily inspiration are at the top of Brian’s list, but he has a high set of standards for his work. He’s devoted to design and equally balances concept and execution. As Creative Director at Boxing Clever, a full-service creative agency he helped form as a subsidiary of 4 Alarm Studio, he’s worked with many notable clients, such as Tuaca Liqueur, Chambord Liqueur and Vodka, Finlandia Vodka, shell Automotive, and more. Brian is also an adjunct professor of Art and Design at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville. His work can be explored on brianyap.com as well as Behance and Coroflot.
