Luke Insect Studio — London, UK

"To understand and design in a mono-graphic style, you need to realise the importance of colour as it is the inter-action of the colour palette that dictates the design. By overlaying and over-printing a restricted range of colours, new colours, shapes and design elements appear that begin to dictate the piece."

After gaining some experience in the near-empty Old Truman Brewery in Brick Lane, in the East End of London, Luke decided to set up his own design and illustration collective called Insect, which he has now adopted as his surname after a decade of success. Over these 10 years, Insect has perfected its oddball image with a maximalist illustration style and surreal Pop Art imagery, working with global brands as well as independent record labels and underground club nights, helping to spearhead the new wave of illustration.
