About Shingo


Shingo Shimizu graduated from OCAD (Ontario College of Art and Design) with a diploma in Graphic Design. He has worked for various firms in the design industry such as, X Corporation and Modem Media.

Moonlighting as a DJ in local clubs and lounges, club promoters employed him to design artwork for their flyers and posters. The eye catchy graphic illustrations became popular and eventually Art Directors took notice.

Since then, he has moved on to illustrating full time, doing both character and graphic design. His clients have included Coca-cola, Nokia, and Scholastic, Virgin Mobile, and Sims Snowboards. Shingo finds inspiration in manga and vintage record covers, using them in layers of vector, blurred edges and scanned textures.
