London based illustrator and designer Tim Easley is best known for his bright palette and bold lines, imaginatively fusing playful characters and hand drawn lettering. Having also worked stints in Tokyo and Seattle, Tim is influenced by urban kitsch, nature, and neon signage. He creates work both personally and commercially in a variety of mediums, including hand drawn skateboards, canvases, plasticine sculptures, painted basketballs, and digital pieces.

Nike & Hotel Creative in London asked him to create a set of illustrations for patches and a card holder, to be used in Nike Town London for a back to school event. Tim Easley tried to make the designs and colours gender neutral to make sure girls and boys would both feel they could use them.
