Hiyoko Imai

I have just fallen in love with Hiyoko Imai's Petit Renard and Petit Eléphant, designed for Poolga.
Go explore this Tokyo-born illustrator/designer's beautiful, minimalist portfolio, I'm sure you'll like it too. Hiyoko lives in Amsterdam and finds her inspiration in cooking, balcony-gardening, walking and dreaming.
A hidden gem!

  1. Hi Debbie theses are so cute, I was in Brighton last week and saw very similar designs (not the same of course) but made up into cushions out of soft colours of velvet you can just imagine how adorable they were. I just love these cards too.
    Hope you are having a lovely summer and getting out and about.xx

  2. ooooh...I liked it!!

  3. I can see why, it so simple and cute...I am off to explore her work.

  4. It's so hard to be 'simple' in design - my students struggle with that all the time and these are lovely examples I'm going to show them when I get back to work! Just saw your tweet about people blogging without referring to original source - can't understand it as it only takes a minute and it's just courteous........

  5. I love the torn paper style of these illustrations - simple and elegant!


Thanks for stopping by! I'd love to hear your thoughts so please leave me a message and brighten up my day. Merci!
