Hello, my name is Gavin Rutherford (b.1987) and I am a Scottish freelance illustrator, graphics & pattern designer based within the wonderful city of Edinburgh. Having spent the entirety of my academic life honing my abilities, and further developing my broad set of skills through a subsequent freelance career, I have a very flexible approach and can produce work to fit a variety of creative briefs. I take great pride in the work I produce and have a passion for visual solutions that are both elegant, creative and functional.
My designs range from bold graphics and simple vectors, to intricate and decorative illustrations. I enjoy taking on any challenge and producing high quality work that can cater towards any project that is thrown my way, from posters, logos and flyers, to packaging, pattern design and traditional illustration.
If you would like to contact me about a project or if have any further questions please do not hesitate to get in touch.
