Donough O'Malley

Donough O'Malley - International graphic & retro illustrator. UK

Bristol, United Kingdom
Irish illustrator Donough O’Malley’s bold, graphical style stands apart from the rest thanks to its quirky humour, enticing old print and paper texturing and his exceptional ability to create something fresh and unique for every client.
Hailing from Monaghan, Donough is based in Bristol where he works as an illustrator and storyboard artist for a range of publishers, broadcasters and production houses. He loves the challenge of creating new visuals for clients, and two of his favourite fellow illustrators are Steve Simpson and Peter Donnelly. He has a BA in Illustration from the University of the West of England and an MA in Narrative and Sequential Design from Brighton University.

Approach

Once he understands the brief, Donough grabs his pencils and sketchpad and explores some ideas, making notes and working out a composition. Then he hones the style of the execution and colour choices. His pencil rough is brought into Photoshop and fine-tuned using handmade textures he’s collected over the years.

Style

Donough’s carefully honed style brings together colours, shapes and textures to generate a sense of fun and a very tactile feel. His graphical style lends itself well to screenprinting, which he’s into at the moment, but he’s equally happy creating more traditional-style illustrations to be used in children’s books, for instance.

Client list

Donough’s clients include the BBC, Jameson's Whiskey, Random House, Management Today, New Internationalist, Runners World, Haymarket Publishing, The Handmade Soap Company, Sony PlayStation and others.

Working with Donough O'Malley is always a pleasure! We have been working together on an ongoing series of beer labels for the past two years and he has proven to be quick, professional and very creative, and his style and composition are always on point. I have always been very happy with the end result and will definitely continue working with him in the future.
