Melinda Beck


New York based illustrator Melinda Beck somehow manages to make even the most mundane of situations look exciting with her use of a bold, bright colour palette and ornamental decorative patterns. Since graduating from the Rhode Island School of Design, Beck has freelanced for a number of high profile clients — most notably The New York Times and ID Magazine. Her trademark block shapes seem to sit perfectly within their rather earthy surrounds, the realism of the backgrounds acting as a nice counter-presence to the somewhat abstract foreground imagery.
