Adam Gale

Adam Gale is an illustrator and printmaker. He graduated from Liverpool School of Art in 1999. Having spent 10 years working in London but originally from the North East, he currently lives in Birmingham.

Working mainly with the screen printing process he has a particular interest in the layering of colour and form this medium provides. The subject matter often reflects a fascination with the natural world, as seen from the slightly distant perspective of a lifelong city dweller.

All screen prints on this site are designed and printed by hand by the artist.

My work falls into two main categories: illustration for editorial and commercial briefs, and vector format icons for branding and packaging. Clients include Albion, BBC, BrandOpus, Campbell Hay, DesignBridge, Dragon Rouge, Elmwood, Foxall Associates, The Guardian, Helikopter Sweden, Him+Her, JKR, JPP Publishing, Path, Pearson Education, R-Design, Siegel+Gale, Touch, Trace PR, Uniform, Vogue, Wardour Publishing and Wonder- landWPA.

Alongside my freelance work, between 2005 and 2011 I was a regular freelance designer and illustrator at Zombie Flesh Eaters, the creative agency set up to produce the visual aspects of Gorillaz and associated projects.
