The illustrations of Milan-based artist Alessandro Gottardo prove that many can be said with minimalistic imagery. They are modest and elegant, and have a lovely playful style that easily catches your attention. Alessandro Gottardo, aka Shout is an illustrator who creates projects for advertising campaigns, products and publishers worldwide. His works have been featured in many newspapers and magazines, such as The New York Times, The Wall Street Yournal and Newsweek.
Shout graduated from the Istituto Europeo del Design in Milan in 2000 and started illustrating for magazines one year later. He ended up working for a representation agency in Canada, but as this contract had its creative restrainments, he left the agency in 2005 and continued solo under the name of Shout. His works have been recognized by several awards, including the Gold Medal from the Society of Illustrators in New York. Collections of his illustrations are also available in books of which you can look at a preview here.
