Profile: Hannah Stouffer

Hannah Stouffer's website address is the first immediate clue to her style. The 'grand array' of its title is an almost poetic summation of her opulent, elegant and beautifully intricate mixture of illustration and design. Her densely packed images consciously recall the Victoriana style of William Morris, yet the subject matter is fresh and modern, illustrating cigarette packets, T-shirts and glossy magazine pages.

Indeed, it's the polar opposite of the sort of grimy, minimal cut-and-paste technique which has dominated modern illustration for too long. Stouffer is happy to wallow in luxuriance, and her clients even happier to parade the essence of quality this projects. Not all are immediately obvious: Disney, Coca-Cola and MSN seem like perfect partners, but Sony, IBM, Camel and Levi's have also been catching on to her sumptuous ornamented style that's making a comeback.
