ABOUT

I am April Black, owner of April Black [Co.]  I am based in Portland, OR where I illustrate art prints, stationery and other branding components.

I believe in a simple approach, with a strong emphasis on illustrated elements— offering art prints, stationery, tote bags, t-shirts and various gift items.

I am a designer and illustrator with a love for nature, riding bikes, good design, dogs, music, pop culture, yoga. I live in a humble apartment where I practice my craft alongside my husband, two dogs and cat.

I grew up in Ohio before relocating here in 2009. As an ambitious, artistic goal, I challenged myself to start a “Make Something Every Day Project” in 2012 in which I challenged myself to design a new graphic illustration every day of the year. This project evolved into a personal goal that inevitably formed my personal design aesthetic.

If you are a retailer interested in opening a wholesale account, please drop me a line for my latest wholesale catalog.
