Michelle Thompson

At Design Essentials we like to showcase great art as well as design. Our aim is to bring to you other artists and designers that we feel complement the Design Essentials Collection and who we think our customers would like to get to know. Our guest artist is Michelle Thompson, a renowned illustrator living and working in Saffron Walden.

Michelle’s illustrations have an international reputation through her work with the influential British designer Vaughan Oliver. Michelle illustrated Cherie Blair’s book, ‘The Goldfish Bowl’. She also illustrates a regular column for The Globe and Mail in Toronto. Other clients include the Royal Mail, BBC, Reebok, Penguin Books, The Guardian and many others.

Michelle’s work is regularly featured in the international design press including Creative Review, Communication Arts and Graphics International and can be found in numerous design books including Hand & Eye and Picture Book by Angus Hyland (Pentagram).
