Jay Cover

An illustrator and artist from the Isle of Man, a small island nation in the Irish sea. Jay draws with simple black lines to portray people, scenes and characters with a humorous sensibility. He creates work for diverse projects spanning publication, visual identity and packaging, and is a lecturer at a London art school.

The package features a foil-stamped illustration exclusive to this limited edition. The charming image of a smiling writer was selected from the many sketches Jay made for us.

Jay created the two colours to be a complementary pair: a purplish blue also suited to drawing outlines, and a muted yellow.
Take a look at our journal to see how the colours came to life.
