Sean Freeman at Apple store Montreal, Canada

For our friendly neighbors of the north, artist Sean Freeman will be appearing at the Apple Store in Montreal on October 17th.

A love for words and beautiful images led Sean to explore a harmony of both.  After graduating with a First Class Honors in Graphic Design and Advertising, Sean started working as a designer in a few agencies in London while pursuing his own work in the evenings, weekends, holidays and tea breaks.  After receiving his first commission ( a tiny headline in a major magazine) one commission quickly turned into several more, until the balance tipped, enabling him to set up his own studio: There Is.

Sean lives in East London under the watchful eye of his 13 year old (slightly fat) French Canadian cat.  He creates award-winning typographic treatments and illustrations for a varied range of clients globally.

A love for words and beautiful images led Sean to explore a harmony of both. After graduating with a First Class Honors in Graphic Design & Advertising, Sean started working as a designer in a few agencies in London while pursuing his own work in the evenings, weekend, holidays and tea-breaks. After receiving his first commission (a tiny headline in a major magazine), one commission quickly turned into two, two to three, until the balance tipped, enabling him to spread his wings and set up his own studio: There Is.

Decemberists poster by Sean Freeman

Sean Freeman recently completed this poster for The Decemberists.

Of his work, Sean explains, “For this I wanted to do something very classical but also different, deep, elegant and alive. Seeing so many beautiful things every sunday at the flower market round the corner always inspires and I’ve been looking for a perfect reason to do a piece with flowers and an excuse to play with colour. Taking some inspiration from those beautiful old tea cups teamed with ornamental lettering brought into real life.”
