The Scoop: Putri Febriana

Hello creative world, meet one of my favorite illustrators, Putri Febriana. I came across Putri’s work during my ongoing search for illustrators to commission for stories while I was a designer at Real Simple Magazine. When I found her work on Behance, I absolutely loved it and knew I had to work with her — the trick was waiting for the perfect story to come along. Putri’s work is really whimsical, bright, colorful, and fun. I especially love her use of pastel colors, pattern play, and attention to fine details in her work, all with a vector illustration style. I was stunned by her whole portfolio, but what stood out to me the most was a beach scene that Putri illustrated, filled with the tiniest little details of people on a beach. When a story for the Family section of Real Simple (all about planning family vacations) came up, I knew that the timing was right and that Putri would be perfect for the story. It was such a pleasure working with her, and you can imagine how excited I was that we would finally get to work on an assignment together. Below are some of my favorite pieces from Putri’s portfolio, her interview with me, and a sneak peak at the story that we worked on for the magazine. Check out more of her incredible work here: Enjoy!
