Phoebe Cho – Designer

Experienced picture book illustrator with a whimsical touch. Let's bring your narrative to life with vibrant watercolor magic! #quirky#cute

Overview

Hey there, I'm Phoebe! Originally from South Korea, I pursued my passion for illustration and graduated with a BA in Illustration from the University of Brighton. As a freelance illustrator, I've had the amazing opportunity to work on a variety of projects, including books, advertisements, and educational materials. Along the way, I've had the chance to live in different countries that have left a lasting impression on my artistic journey. Now, I'm happily settled in the UK.


My love for creativity goes beyond just drawing. I've got a soft spot for writing children's stories too! This unique combination allows me to dive deep into the minds of authors, translating their words into captivating visuals that are ready to leap off the page. When it comes to my artistic style, you can expect an organic warmth and a modern twist. I love adding a touch of whimsy with texture, shape, and color. I have a blast bringing my client's characters to life with their own unique movements and emotions.


As I continue to grow as an illustrator, nothing excites me more than collaborating on new projects. I truly believe in the power of creative teamwork and the incredible things we can achieve together. So, if you've got an opportunity in mind, I'd be absolutely thrilled to chat and see how we can create something truly extraordinary!

Phoebe did a wonderful job illustrating images for my child's favorite bedtime story. I appreciated her dynamic approach to the brief; for example, she brought her own inspiration for how to illustrate a particular character I didn't have a clear mental image of. I also observe that she included elements of diversity, equity, and inclusion that enriched the world of the story. Phoebe also itera...
