Torey Butner

Torey Butner – Designer

Illustrator + Letterer with 6 years of experience whose whimsical illustrations can help bring your stories to life.

Overview

I’m an Illustrator and Letterer living and working in San Francisco.


My work is influenced by my love of curiosities, folklore, nature and aims to inspire wonder and discovery of magic in the everyday. I am motivated by a mix of vibrant color combinations, shaping compositions, and finding new ways to incorporate soft textures in my work. Through illustration, I provide unique solutions that simplify complex messages for kids and create memorable, emotional connections.


I love collaborating with art directors and authors on their vision and creating something bigger than what we could create on our own. I am professional, communicative and respect time and deadlines.
