“The bright colours, no-nonsense black outlines and playful but thoroughly flat style of Andrea Chronopoulos’ work make it both distinctive and part of a modern tradition in illustration that we see a fair bit, but which is deceptively tricky to get right.

In the correct hands, however, that flattened look —all simplified figures, geometric backgrounds and big hands— is superbly versatile, and clearly very commissionable.
It works for brands, advertising, packaging, editorial; cute things, serious things; narratives and stand-alone images.”
