Janne Iivonen is originally from Helsinki, Finland, but has been based in Brighton, UK for the past five and half years. He graduated from the University of Brighton in 2013 with a degree (BA Hons) in illustration and has since been working for a range of clients spanning many well known media and commercial brands such as The Guardian, The International New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Wired, Esquire, Lexus, EasyJet and Heineken among others. Janne specialises on character based illustrations where the body language and gestures help to communicate an array of different topics. Stylistically his work can be seen as a continuation of the so called Ligne Claire school of illustration.
