Today, on Bounty Hunters, Harry Vincent, designer and artist working across disciplines in graphic design and illustration. Having only recently made the jump to being a freelancer, he’s had the pleasure of working with clients in the sports, clothing, and music industries from Los Angeles to Sheffield; including Thirty Seconds To Mars and Drop Dead Clothing.
Some highlights of his work include both client and self-initiated projects. Harry has used his daily experimentation incorporating a mix of stock assets and bespoke illustrations with typography to produce a wide range of works. The most well-known of those is the “Taboo” artwork. Featuring a child whose brain has been scooped out, with a hand dropping a small brain into it. It has gone onto live as a T-shirt, which has had 3 very successful print runs on Everpress.
Recently, Drool invited the Designer/Artist to use his artwork of “It’s in our hands” to raise money for Rainforest Trust as part of their ‘Breathe Easy’ campaign.
Turning over to Harry’s client work, Thirty Seconds To Mars approached him to do their European Tour merchandise back in March of last year and have been hitting it off ever since with multiple projects throughout the year. A few highlights from there, include the “Yes this is a cult” tie-dye t-shirt and ‘Echelon’ hoodie. Harry noted that is was great to include some signature illustrations in the pieces and still give them that brutalist edge.
Next up is the “Harry’s Pizza” artwork he created for the Pizza Typefaces competition to win the “Kern” typeface. Harry won the prize, of which you’ll see it in use on a lot his works and on his yet-to-be-finished website.
Back to his client work, Drop Dead Clothing commissioned Harry to produce a collection for “Friday the 13th” before Christmas of last year, where a range of apparel was produced.
Lastly, he highlights that every single post on his feed has Red in it, as that’s his favourite colour. Included are some miscellaneous self-initiated works that showcase Harry’s tone of voice, morbid aesthetic and of course, red-ness.
If you were to summarise his works: ‘Death’ ‘Red’ and ‘Design’ would ring true.
He is currently working on projects through this global pandemic and is readily open to commissions.
