Yeji Yun is an illustrator that I discovered whilst reading ‘A Graphic Cosmogony’ – a graphic novel published by Nobrow Press that I brought at the Pick me up exhibition. Her work is very unique and I decided to have a look and she what else she has produced. She has several publications, but most interestingly has been involved in a lot of commersial work. Projects include;
Publicity posters for the Jarasum International Jazz festival, Various festival posters, Venus kitchen logo, ‘The River is always right’ book design, publicity poster for Pastel Music label.
It was really interesting seeing how many projects she’s involved in and all the different styles of work that she produces.
After discovering Yeji Yun through Nobrow press, I went to Bristol to Here Gallery to look for some other Nobrow publications. I found ‘The Rise and Fall’ by Micah Lidberg. It’s a really creative concertina book containing only images. I then discovered that Micah Lidberg has previously worked for the New York Times, Nike, United magazine and Computer arts. He describes his main influences as nature – every bit of it.
