We had the pleasure of looking through many portfolios this year and now that the judges had their say in picking the winner and top 5, we here at the office picked our favorites of the submissions. Here they are (in no particular order):
Victoria Semykina is a Russian illustrator and fine artist currently based in Bologna, Italy. We really enjoyed her portfolio, it was full of fun textures and fun concepts.
Marc Scheff hails from our native New York
Montserrat College of Art in 2011. We featured her last year as well, she really has a lovely portfolio.
Ringling college of Art and Design.
Logan Faerber is Boston based illustrator with a consistently great portfolio of humorous and conceptual images.
Fil Dunsky is a Russian illustrator who has a really warm portfolio full of whimsical characters that is perfect for the advertising world.
Hannah Christenson was also featured in last years Staff Picks, and it bears repeating.
