Greg Coulton – Designer

Professional Illustrator and Graphic Designer, specialising in ornate typography (modern and vintage), iconography and visual story telling.


I am an Illustrator, Designer & Typographer, with over 20 years experience in the creative industry. I've had the great fortune of working with some fantastic brands and publications. Working with David Copperfield on his History of Magic book was a real pleasure, whilst being invited to create cover art for the classic Dr. Jekyll & Mr Hyde was a great honour.

My process begins by reviewing a brief with the client, really getting to understand what they want to achieve, and adding my thoughts and creative advice where appropriate. From here I begin a period of research into the genre and any style references provided by the client.

This is followed by a number of concept sketches, subsequently presented to the client. Together we would discuss the different creative routes, and filter the work down to one composition that achieves all the success criteria outlined at the start. A happy client is my number 1 objective!

I would then move forward to creating final art - be it hand-drawn or vector graphics, ultimately supplying the client with print-ready artwork and source files.

My creative process is one of open collaboration. I strive to make my clients feel we've created the artwork together, and the finished product is something we will both feel proud to shout about!
