Joel is one of my favourite up and coming illustrators (and I most disclose a friend) from the UK. His work is fresh, clean and contemporary. Check out his skate-inspired styles at his tumblr blog Joel Benjamin Illustration.
One of my clients, Vasilios Zoupoundnidis – Owner and CEO of Sales Competence, has just received an award from the King of Sweden for Swedish ‘Pioneer of the Year’ Winner. I was lucky enough to work with Vasilios in 2007 when he gave me the task of rebranding his company which involved designing all of the corporate ID and the website. You can view the website here:
Vasilios is an extremely hard-working businessman and an accomplished humanitarian concerning his efforts to highlight the persecution of Falun Gong in China as well as the criminal exploits of the the Chinese Communist Party.
Here's a link to an Epoch Times article about Vasilios receiving the reward and his human rights work.
Congratulations Vasilios you deserve it!
