Darren Booth

30 Mar

Darren Booth is an illustrator and typographer based in Ontario, Canada. His unique style incorporates hand lettering, illustration, collage, and painting. Seeing that his work is so unusual (in a good way), he is able to freelance full time and work with some really big-time clients like AOL, Coca-Cola, ESPN, Herman Miller, The New York Times, Sony Music, and Target. Some of his latest work, hand lettering for country legend Willie Nelson’s newest album Here We Go Again, features great subdued colors and a individuality that you don’t see every day.

I also love the fact that he shares his work space on his website. I think you can tell a lot about a person based on their work space. In Darren’s case, it appears that he just cleaned his office, took a few photos, and acts like he keeps his studio very tidy. LIES!

Great stuff, Darren. Keep it up!
