Artist: Julia Allum for Illustration: Surprise City Sounds
Medium: Digital / Vector
Inspired by unexpected urban sounds. A parakeet’s squawk can often be heard in London above the usual hum of traffic. Simple shapes incorporating the Roundel logo illustrate these two contrasting sounds.
The illustration immediately demands the viewer’s attention because of its graphic simplicity, elegance and subtlety.
Julia Allum is a freelance illustrator based in Norfolk. She is influenced by her love of poster art from the first half of the 20th century. The bold shapes found in Art Deco design and the decorative flourishes of Art Nouveau inspire her colourful, eye catching illustrations. To date her work has been used in advertising, publishing and packaging both in the UK and abroad.
