Timba Smits

Timba Smits, what a name! He also happens to be a very accomplished illustrator, designer, and maker of fine typography. It’s pretty fun looking through his’s work—everything is so juicy! From the textures to the unique typography, to the presentation, to the icons, I was definitely engaged clicking and looking.

Overall, it’s nice to see a designer have their hand in so many different creative aspects. There’s a distinctiveness throughout Timba’s illustration, design, and typography—but also a consistency that’s admirable.

Timba is amazing, love his characters!

This work is most righteous. Did Timba also do the album art for The Gaslamp Killer EP on Obey’s label?
