Allan Deas is a Scottish illustrator & graphic designer with over twenty years experience in the design industry. He worked for many years as a graphic & textile designer in the fashion industry before turning his hand to professional illustration in around 2005. Having worked across many disciplines he has designed for a diverse range of clients in various areas from fashion to packaging, editorial to advertising. His bold style reflects fond memories of TV programmes & books from his childhood in the late 70's and 80's - a slightly retro feel twisted with contemporary influence results in his distinctive style - a highly original playground of colour & character with a quirky sense humour!
After many years in London and a brief stint in Paris, Allan currently lives & works in Barcelona, Spain.
