Peter Kyprianou

Peter Kyprianou - International graphic & icon illustrator. UK

London-based illustrator Peter Kyprianou has a clear and graphic creative style, perfect for the icons, pictograms, infographics, line-based artworks and storyboards he expertly delivers for clients in retail, editorial, publishing and more. Using his experience and natural drawing ability, he hones each piece to his client’s needs, varying his approach to reflect the brands he’s working with.
Through his Greek Cypriot background Peter is influenced by Byzantine iconography, and he’s also inspired by the pictograms and icons drawn by the German modernist Gerd Arntz. Rembrandt, Hals, Vermeer and El Greco are among his favourite artists. He has an Illustration degree from University of the Arts London, Camberwell.

Approach

After researching a project, Peter usually does some sketching to play around with the balance of the composition and its positive and negative space. He then works in Photoshop and Illustrator, where he’ll experiment further with the structure and bring colour into play.

Styles

Peter’s digitally drawn icons, pictograms, infographics and technical illustrations are clean and clear, and he varies the style of the line work to meet the brief. When storyboarding, he works by hand, producing imagery with a more traditional feel. Either way, strong line work and flat colours are clear elements in his illustrations.

Client list

Peter has been commissioned by clients including PWC, Sainsbury’s, Runners World, BBC Gardeners’ World, Time, Oxford University Press, Proctor and Gamble, PWC, Unilever, Which? and more.
Peter's line work for the four tip strips illustrations was nice and clean, he knows how to turn things around very quickly without sacrificing quality.
Beatriz Gamez, Time Inc
Been great working with Peter for one of our feature stories. We've made quite a lot of changes along the way but he didn't complain at all. The final artwork looks great and it was a quick turn around.

Peter was successful at translating the 5 core disciplines of strategic supply chain management into icons that imbued their meaning at a glance. Working diligently with us, Peter quickly incorporated our feedback to meet our tight deadlines. We are very satisfied with the quality and professional service we received.

Chris White, The Integer Group
Peter struck a perfect balance between speed and amount of detail, and his illustrations were ideal for what we needed. Was a pleasure to work with him.
Will Quirk , Bright Partnership
I commissioned Peter do create a feature for healthy magazine after working together previously on some exercise cutouts. Peter was thorough at understanding the details of what I was after and the way he provided the files was great so we could move elements to allow for copy and gutter – something which is extremely important when working in editorial design. He was extremely professional and worked so quickly to illustrate two fantastic pieces – if it’s speed and quality you need then I highly recommend him!
