Meet the artist responsible for our 2018 Poetry for a Change look

We are really pleased with our new CHANGE logo and designs, and hope you agree that they are fresh, gorgeous to look at and full of the spirit of change.

They have been created by illustrator Chie Hosaka. Printmaking is a passion for Chie. For this project she explored how the digital processes could create a screenprint-like aesthetic. Given the brief of “Change”,  Chie wanted to create illustrations that captured the way in which poetry touches lives and informs our impressions of the world – the way imagination blurs with the real. She drew the image digitally using only three colours; overlapping each colour to create additional tones and hues.

Chie has an MA with distinction from Cambridge School of Art and a BA Hons in Fine Art from Nottingham Trent University. She was a Runner Up for the Searle Award for Creativity 2017.
