Brian Andrew Jasinski is a designer + illustrator who works and resides in Cleveland, Ohio. A graduate of the Cleveland Institute of Art – he has worked professionally as a designer for 18 years working with clients ranging from large corporations, independent retailers, medical institutions and non-profit organizations. He is currently the Director of Design for the strategy marketing firm shark&minnow.
Brian has always had an infinity for the connection between fine art, illustration and design – which led to his line of prints and social stationery known as Grey Cardigan. Influenced by the color, patterns, fashion and line work of the mid-20th century – Brian’s work often finds figures interacting in seamless harmony with the flora and fauna-filled environments he places them in. He describes his illustrations as a captured moment, as if they are a still from a larger cinematic story. Brian enjoys creating the custom patterns that are prevalent in his work, and particularly loves using several patterns in concert with each other – creating what he refers to as “beautiful clashing!”
