Dominic Trevett is an illustrator who is based in London, England. As a student he won a D&AD yellow pencil for ‘the most outstanding illustration’ and in the summer of 2004 he graduated from The Royal College of Art where he studied Communication Art & Design.
He has created illustrations for The National Gallery, Penguin, Canongate, Bupa, Unicef, Hamleys, Marriott Hotels, The Economist, The Sunday Times, New Scientist, Which, Bloomberg Business Week, Fiat, Gü, Sainsburys and British Airways.
Drawing takes a major role in his work. Every illustration originates from the pages of his sketchbook where he explores the subject with the humble pencil. Even though the final image is digital this hand drawn quality is retained along with the occasional mistake.
In 2015 he helped Team Connexus (BBC The Apprentice series 11 episode 5) with their book Snottydink. Although the team failed to win the task it proved to be a hit on the internet with fans and is now a much sought after collectors item.
His love for maps (both drawing and collecting) and cycling has taken him on many adventures. He has ridden across Europe, USA, NZ and even Vietnam and Cambodia. He also enjoys watching rugby and athletics in his spare time.
Dominic is not short on ideas. In future he hopes to create a series of his own children’s books and maybe even have an exhibition or two.
