Malika Favre

Barcelona-based Malika’s work is incredibly popular, largely due to its instantly recognisable style, but also due to her incomparable skill at the art of simplifying down an image to its bear essentials and making it sing.

Malika concentrates on light: almost drawing with shadows. Dark as that sounds, her work is actually some of the brightest out there in terms of use of colour. Want to get hot under the collar? Check out her infamous karma sutra typography project.

Her clients include The New Yorker, Vogue, BAFTA, Sephora and Penguin Books, amongst many others.
