The first artist that we'll be collaborating with for 'CreateVoice+ presents... Creativity in the City' on the 2nd of November is graphic designer and illustrator Jimmy Turrell. CreateVoice members met him at the Great Western Studios open day in July, and saw some of his works in the studio. Turrell trained at Central St Martins, and his style focuses on hand-drawn elements - his skill is easily seen in his illustrations and paintings which often form the basis of his graphic works. He has worked with many high-profile brands such as Nike, The Guardian, The Observer, The Times, Conde Nast, Channel 4, Addidas and many more. To get an idea of what might be in store, you can see more of his work on his website (designed by the talented agency Two Times Elliott, also in residence at Great Western) or on his blog. Stay tuned for the next artist, who will be working alongside Turrell as a duo: Kate Gibb!
