Fiongal Greenlaw

Fiongal Greenlaw is a designer previously mentioned on Decoy's blog after he graduated from The Royal College of Art, London last year, where he obtained an M.A in menswear design. (see previous post here.)

This post is rather a recap of Fiongal's portfolio that has been uploaded to his site since graduating, where you can view more work. His brilliantly original illustrations hold their own strength as individual works in their own right, and not just as design idea sketches for line-ups.

Fiongal's work will feature in Menswear Illustration (Thames & Hudson), released in January, 2015.
