Jez Burrows

4 May

Jez Burrows is an Edinburgh, UK-based graphic designer, illustrator, and woodland appreciator. He is also co-founder of an independent press Sing Statistics which publishes fiction and visual art , one fifth of collective Evening Tweed, and frequent contributor to It’s Nice That. Jez has a clean style with lots of detail in most of his pieces. The infographics he’s designed could make the most boring of facts into something people would actually want to look at and enjoy what they see.

Jez also designed the logo (and possibly other pieces) for the Build Conference. He also had a hand in designing/making special over-sized wooden nuts which were given to each of the speakers at the conference. Real nice!

As I was reading his blog, I came across a tumblr site Jez and his buddy Jake Blanchard created that I thought was quite funny/useful. Photobooth Reference: Illustrators using themselves for reference. I would be neat to see the pieces the illustrators created based on their reference photos…Just a thought.

Great work, Jez!
