I'm Simon Whittaker – an illustrative designer with over 15 years commercial experience in creating fun, colourful and quirky visuals for print, digital/web and motion projects.

I have an interest in animation and children's picture books – something I'm currently working on developing further for my portfolio. I'm also very interested in breaking into the video-games industry in a design or art-related role, and would welcome any advice, assistance or offers in this regard.

I'm a member of the Association of Illustrators and I'm currently available for projects, collaborations and commissions. I'm particularly interested in opportunities for representation and illustration work for publishing.

I'm currently available for projects, collaborations and commissions, so if you're looking to hire an illustrator or designer for a project, please get in touch for a chat, request a quote or sign-up to the mailing list to get updates on what's happening and when.

I am advised, supported and protected as a member of the Association of Illustrators

“We commissioned Simon to produce a graphic based on very specific needs and requirements. Simon certainly came up with the goods. It was also really original, creative and quirky, but still met the brief exactly. Highly recommended!”

“Simon delivered the first few illustrations in sketch form, and we knew he was going to nail it… On budget and on time every step of the way, Simon was not only a genius illustrator but a lovely person to work with… He has a talent for taking the everyday and making it sing… He delighted our audience with his clever and cute characters, and went beyond what we thought was even possible. We'd work with him again in a heartbeat…”

“Simon's work is fantastic and really engaging. His quirky style is absolutely what our project needed. He is always very professional and listens to exactly what you need. The work that he does is excellent and of a really high quality… thanks Simon, we couldn’t have done it without you!”
