Jordan Gray is designer, illustrator and art director from Kansas City. I first stumbled across Jordan’s work when I saw one of his gig posters. So I checked him out and loved all of his other projects too. Some of the designs are super busy with lots of colours, others are very minimal using a limited colour palette. It’s impressive to see that one person can pull off both so well while still maintaining a certain personal style. Check out some of Jordan’s work below.

My favourite element has to be the colour schemes though. it’s always spot on. For more inspiration make sure to visit bennewman.co.uk. + Continue Reading
