Mid-century vintage and art deco inspired illustrations by Willian Santiago.

Based in the city of Londrina, Willian Santiago is a Brazilian illustrator and graphic designer whose work draws inspiration from mid-century design as well as minimalist graphics and the elegance of art deco. A series of digital collages and Willian Santiago’s corporate identity proposal for Barro Blue Ceramics have been featured already on WE AND THE COLOR. Today I want to introduce you to his outstanding illustrative work. Willian’s illustrations are characterized by this sense of minimalism using a varied mix of geometric shapes along with a selected range of colors and playful elements. As already mentioned, his work is deeply inspired by the style of mid-century art and design with a touch of art deco and minimalism.

The following images show different artworks that have been created for different personal and commissioned artworks. To see more of Willian Santiago creative work, please visit his portfolio on Behance or follow him on Instagram.
