Casting a new light on our everyday through striking vector designs

Inspired by pop nostalgia, 90’s music and cartoons, Thomas Hedger’ graphically striking vector-style work, transforms the mundane into the extraordinary. Pumped with vivid colour palettes, retro patterns and surreal scenes, his work offers a playful and eccentric perspective on the world. Working digitally, his work transforms ordinary objects, people and places into vibrant scenes, adding quirky narratives and humorous characters along the way, casting a new light on our everyday.

Situated on a house boat in Reading, Thomas creates all of his work in his studio there. His work is unmistakably influenced by his watery surroundings, often depicting swimming pools and water reflections in his designs. Having only just begun studying a BA Illustration at Central Saint Martins this year, Thomas has already created a name for himself working with clients such as The Guardian and The New York times, whilst also being a D&AD New Blood Pencil winner of 2016.

there’s always something happening even if the scene is static, I always hope to add a deeper meaning
