The Attic #15 Raymond Savignac

Hi, hello there! How are you doing today? I’m all ready with another dose of inspiring snippets! 🌞

This month’s inspiration is brought to you by a witty poster designer, a proud kid, a classy and snowy poster and a children’s book!

An illustrator: Raymond Savignac

A while ago I came across the work of Savignac: witty, colourful artworks. Little was I aware that I’d seen his work since I was a child. Savignac was the designer behind the BIC pens logo boy.
