My name is Mike Hall and I would like to welcome you to my online portfolio. I work as a freelance illustrator, catering for a diverse range of clients and projects which fall under the category of concept art, brand and product design, through to advertising and publishing.
I began my career working as part of a large team within a Soho based graphics studio, London, UK. There I began as a junior visualiser, learning the craft of concept visualisation, mainly for advertising and clients specialising in Brand Identity. Over the years prior to digital, I have enjoyed extended periods as an in-house illustrator for a number of major design studios, i.e. Landor Associates. During that period, illustrations were crafted using good old fashioned pencil, pen and paint. With the onset of computerised output I inevitably switched to digital illustration, my work now generated primarily, but not exclusively, in Photoshop.
Having a studio based education I am able to cover a wide range of styles, aside from the one showcased here.
Thank you for taking the time to visit. If you have any queries, feel free to drop me a line.
