Andrew Bannecker - Simple, True and Tender

Some people love to work with personal messages or important issues. Andrew Bannecker, an established digital artist who dabbles and professionalizes in vector illustration is such a person. Andrew Bannecker managed to bag reputable clients like Starbucks, Vodafone and Coca-Cola. Being the talent that he is, his work is wildly recognized by Communication Arts, American Illustration, Society of Illustrators, 3x3 Magazine and SILA.

In the world of vector illustration, Andrew Bannecker would be the first to admit that he is a nomad, consistently moving from one place to another. He was born in and started out in Kansas and then moved around the country from Seattle to Chicago, and then from New York to Washington DC, where he works and lives nowadays.


It is said that Bannecker started out in the advertising industry creating great pieces of artwork for clients. Promoting someone else probably got to him, the same way it gets to creative people. There will be a yearning for creative leverage and space. That is why Bannecker started out on his own so that he is allowed more creative space to come up with artworks like these…

It is clear that Bannecker is an incredible illustrator talent and his inclination is towards strong but simple concepts and sober colors.


Bat for Lashes by Andrew Bannecker


Bannecker leans towards muted colors for a reason. Simply because, we feel, it brings the message out more profoundly and it makes his vector artwork stand out against the barrage of brightly colored vector illustrations.



What is interesting and different about this vector artist’s work is that Andrew Bannecker is a self-taught vector artist and he repurposes ephemera to add texture and depth to his artwork as opposed to lines, shapes and colors.

I like Bannecker's personal style and vision. His poster for Bats for Lashes is really great (and so are his other illustrations).

I love the retro feel to these illos. Like they'd been done in the 60s.

I really like the Hopenhagen posters Bannecker did for Coca-Cola. Time for a better world... Are these a personal project or real ads?
