We are absolutely loving Craig and Karl.
“Who are Craig and Karl?” you may say. Well, Craig and Karl (their self-portraits above and below) are friends who live in different parts of the world, Craig in New York City and Karl in London. They are illustrators specialising in installation who collaborate daily on work creating bold and fun graphic work which is often communicated in a humorous way.
Their work is highly stylished yet holds an intriguing simplicity which quickly becomes their obvious trademark.
They’ve worked with Apple, LVMH, Nike, Apple, Vogue and the New York Times on graphic pieces – still managing to maintain a visual style they can call their own. Their work has extended to Sydney also – with identity work for restaurants, illustration for markets and even graphic representation of their Sydney studio (can you figure out the iconic Sydney building?).
Working in all manner of medium, their portfolio which is a dense tale of successful work is available here.
