“I do love summer,” says Carolyn Vibbert about the inspiration behind her collection of eternally sunny illustrations. “I hike, canoe, swim in the ocean. And when I’m illustrating, I combine that feeling with the message the client is trying to communicate.”
Solving the puzzle of communication plus emotion is what has driven Carolyn’s extensive career. Her styles range from whimsical brush strokes to fine lines to cut paper, but through it all is a thread of human insight and warmth.
“Design principles are very important to me,” she says. “I love figuring out how to tell a story with shapes and color.” She’s done just that for notable clients ranging from Clorox to Quaker to Safeway.
