Gemma Correll
Gemma Correll is a cartoonist and illustrator, but I like her for her typographic hand. She studied in Norwich and got her degree in BA (hons) Graphic Design, but she considers herself more of an illustrator.  Her work is on sale in places like Paperchase and WHSmiths in greeting card forms. She draws a  a monthly Skycats cartoon for the Emirates Airlines Open Skies magazine and Hallmark, The New York Times and The Observer.
Her work is a lot more coloirful than mine but I dont see her use of colour as a great difficulty. She uses very block colours which I think is what makes her that bit different from other designers. She has very playful text, in fact all her work is playfull but this interests me more.
