In a bold graphic style, Anna Kövecses flawlessly manages to simplify yet enhance, each individual image.

From faces to fruit, each item is carefully designed with a minimalist, but rich palette.

Kövecses manages to bring a retro-modern and refreshing edge to such a classic subject.

Her use of colour and composition is pitched perfectly for a younger audience, but one which will very much appeal to an adult who appreciates stylish design.
