When it comes to her designs, Alice Isaac is definitely the cool kid on the block. A freelance image maker and animator based in South East London, she thrives in creating engaging content by combining her passion for hand-collaged imagery, layered with digital processes and effects.
And with her selected clients including brands like Reebok, Nike, Prada, Flaunt Magazine, and singer Billie Eilish, her work is both fashionable and fresh. “I gravitate quite heavily towards fashion imagery, faces, and the human form in general,” shared Isaac in an interview with D&AD. “It has always been my default, it’s a realm that feels very familiar and comfortable to me.”
She admits to having a bit of an obsession when it comes to fashion magazines. But Isaac’s work isn’t fashionable in the traditional sense, as she seeks to transcend the stereotypical notions of what fashion or beauty “should” look like.
With most of her images formed as a sort of colorful mashup, Isaac’s work is best categorized as collage. “Collage is a brilliant medium to pick up quickly when you can’t draw well,” she explains. “I think a lot of my style actually comes from not being able to draw or animate very well. I developed something that was achievable within my skillset, so everything is kept it quite simple but trying to elevate it in the coolest way possible.”
The result make for a unique take on the work “fashion”.
