Australian illustrator and graphic designer Rebecca Mills is a master of vector illustration, employing simplified geometric shapes, crisp edges, smooth curves, and bright (but considered) color palettes, to create vibrant artwork that really pops!
With a BA in Graphic Design from Curtin University of Technology and 12 years of experience behind her, she knows what she likes and she does it well. “My work is digital,” she stressed in an interview with Ballpitmag. “I have so much respect for those working in traditional media without the magic of undo and easy proportion/scale adjustments. Being able to adjust colors globally is also something I really love. Everything looks better when slid -5 on hue!”
Indeed, her work is very much color driven. “Once I get a brief, I sketch while split-screen researching on my iPad (normally on the couch with the terrible TV on in the background),” she says. “Once the sketches are approved by my client, it’s color blocking time. If the brief allows, I’ll bring into PS and go nuts with homemade paint textures and brushes.”
With a little over 10k fans on Instagram and selected clients that include the Perth Zoo, the State Library of Western Australia, and the University of New England, people are clearly taking note!
