Resident Artist: Tobias Brunsdon

Share This Story

Tobias Brunsdon is a Bristol, UK based creative director and co-founder of Illustrate. Growing up in the countryside, Tobias was always interested in animals and nature; his hand-drawn, abstract designs are inspired by the wildlife and natural world around him.

After graduating from university, Tobias ventured off to India and it was there that his love for pattern work and symmetrical design really took off. He specializes in ‘zentangle’ art, which involves creating beautiful images by drawing structured patterns to form a larger piece.Tobias has twice brought his distinct style to our can labels and is now the artist behind the original design on our Artisanal Dry Gin bottles. “There weren’t many boundaries on the project,” says Tobias of designing the gin bottle.

“It was your space to draw on the bottle, do whatever you want. And I thought because it was a clear gin, it would be cool to do an underwater scene so it would be as if the animals were swimming around.”
