Will Baker - Designer

New York, United States

Experimental designer and conceptual illustrator with love for good literature, good sci-fi, and bad lo mein.

Overview

About me:

I'm a designer and illustrator by trade, with a background in fine art and an education in writing. I work across many different industries, from literature and publishing to technology and fashion, and am always looking for inspiration in new spaces.

I am an animal lover, an avid traveler, and, of course, a voracious reader. I make a little music here and there, and, dang it, one day I'll finish a novel of my own.

About my work:

My design aesthetic is modern, edgy, and experimental. I'm passionate about trying new things and designing fresh products rather than treading the safe or expected paths.

My illustration style is dense, elaborate, and occasionally a bit absurd. I love to create complete, natural-feeling scenes, full of fun and/or meaningful details and symbols.
