Illustrator Research #42- Kevin Ghiglione


Kevin Ghiglione has been illustrating for 20 years in Toronto, Canada. Kevin began his career studying fine art, photography and graphic design at the Alberta College of Art, later studying industrial art at The Ontario College of Art in Toronto. His illustration style often incorporates the use of photography and typography as design elements to convey a message. His work is hand generated, but composed digitally, often combining different images and textures. His work is influenced by his experience doing silkscreen printing which explains the many layers of elements and meanings that his images often contain. His work appears throughout North America in advertising campaigns, magazines and corporate communications. Kevin lives in Toronto with his wife and three children.

Some of his clients have been Warner Brothers, Nortel Networks, Toronto Star, Coca Cola, Rogers Cable, YMCA, Disney Films, University of Toronto, ScotiaBank, Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce, Queen's University, American Law, Canadian Space Agency, University of Victoria, Simon Fraser University, Canada Life, Rutger's University, Harlequin, Canadian Business, Barron's Magazine, The Washingtonian, The Globe & Mail, PeopleSoft, Harvard Business Review, Imperial Oil, Scarborough Board of Education, Symaptico Magazine, Management Health Network, Royal Lepage, Mcgraw Hill, Scholastic, Moore Business Forms, The Body Shop, Molsons, Today's Parent, and Toronto Life.

His color schemes stand out in a lot of the pieces, and I really like the college elements that add texture.
