Frank Maiorana. Artist/illustrator
My Name is Frank, a Melbourne based Freelance Illustrator/Graphic artist.
My keen eye for visuals and passion for creativity has been a life long journey, focusing all my studies on design and then excelling in the graphic arts (Diploma, Graphic arts VUT, 1997).
A 13 year career (1999-2012) as a graphic artist, at Victoria’s flagship newspaper, The Age, saw me hone my skills in many facets of art, design, and was used to the demands of tight deadlines and am proficient in Illustrator, Photoshop and InDesign.
What began as a pure Graphic arts role, mainly consisting on Information graphics, maps recreation and photoshop enhancements, evolved into a fantastic illustrator/artist role.
Surrounded by the age’s Artist team I was inspired to become a highly sort after artist and illustrator, receiving a Quill award for best illustration and walkey finalist for best artwork.
I am now a freelancer specializing in Design, Illustrations, Information Graphics, Maps, logo creation, corporate branding and artwork. Notable illustration/artwork clients since leaving the age; Mediaxpress, Domain Magazine, thenewdaily, Royal Auto Magazine, StudioDigital, Fairfax, Melbourne University Magazine and City of Port Philip.
