Yasmin

My name is Yasmin and I’m 26 years old. I have an Egyptian background and originally from London, now living in Sheffield. I’ve always been in design, from going to an arts school, followed by getting a degree in design, and working as a designer in London. I’m now a full time independent illustrator, specialising in typography and punchy bold graphics. I originally started selling my illustrations as a hobby 2 years ago and it quickly grew bigger and bigger. Now after 2 years I run my own website, 2 Etsy shops and my work on various other platforms. After years of being under someone else’s design directions, I now have the freedom to design what I love, and it only makes my work that much more authentic. They say, “if you love what you do then you’ll never work a day in your life” and I very much resonate with that. My work sometimes hits the boundaries with the occasional “profanity” print, but that’s what I love to do. Creating a bit of shock and intrigue is what drives me to think outside the box for “what is something other people don’t really dare to do?”
