Matt Lyon is a UK based graphic designer/artist who produces work under the name C86. He is one among a handful designers/illustrators that I have ran across recently and have been cyber stalking via twitter. I find Matt’s work super inspiring, he has a looser style that feels a bit more organic and hand crafted, the hardest part about compiling this particular post is fighting the urge to put up a good portion of his creative output. Matt has been a continous contributor up on threadless, and was recently featured in Digital Arts magazine, he’s won several awards, and has been recognized by notable design publications, he brings a wide range of shapes and surfaces to life with his work, but no matter what the medium, from the outside looking in it seems he just enjoys the fact that he is able to be creative for a living. Below is a brief collection of work from the C86 website that I feel embodies exactly that.
