Ömer

omer-1-design-crush

 

Instagram is a treasure trove of good things beyond photos of sunsets, pumpkin spice lattes, and what people ate for lunch. An artist who simply goes by the name Ömer has quietly been creating and posting simple black line illustrations that leave just enough to the imagination. (A heads up that the majority of his work is probably NSFW.)

Daria Golab

daria-golab-1-design-crush

 

Nearly all of Polish artist Daria Golab‘s portraits are brimming with emotion and mystery. Why is that girl’s cheek scratched? What makes someone smile so big? What is she gazing at in the distance? Only creating more questions are the often present flowers or pastel colors.

Rachel Peck

rachel-peck-1-design-crush

 

Rachel Peck‘s illustrations are half inspired by amazing 80s graphic art and half fantastical cartoons. The Colorado-based artist creates some seriously bold and playful works that are usually focused on food, patterns, and objects depicted through pastels and thick line work.

Alexandria Coe

Alexandria Coe-1-Design Crush

 

Illustrations drawn with a loose hand by London’s Alexandria Coe are both sweet and sensual at the same time. Ladies in the act of dressing (or undressing) or lounging in the bathtub who rarely reveal their faces act as subjects of Alexandria’s lovely work.

Jessica Smith

Jessica Smith-1-Design Crush

 

Simple shapes and colors built through layers both physically and digitally are how Jessica Smith creates her art. Her work is mainly editorial in nature but she also creates some interesting book covers, every piece bold and bright and inviting.

Swen Swenson

Swen Swenson-1-Design Crush

 

Swen Swenson has a talent for capturing the beauty in ordinary situations in his minimal illustrations. Serene camping scenes, the fear of a platform diving board, and so many more scenes are brought to life through superb attention to detail. Swenson also designs some fantastically graphic skateboard decks that you can purchase, as well as prints of his artwork.
