ANNA KEO is a sustainable fashion illustrator, designer and creative. She loves illustrating fashion and food, as well as working on a variety of projects within the fashion industry.
She loves to create quirky postcards, artwork and socks with her own flair.
Her style is pretty unique and atypical in fashion illustration - she always uses her signature white lines.
Anna is an art school dropout that was talented enough to earn herself a place in some of the best design schools in the world. She recently graduated from Nottingham Trent university in fashion design, where she built the foundation for Anna Keo. Thanks to her amazing tutor Emma Prince she pushed her boundaries in sustainable design, and developed into an excellent and well-rounded designer.
After graduation, she tried to find a place in corporate fashion, but never seemed to fit in. So she decided to take a leap and follow Gannon’s Multi-Hyphenate lifestyle and that’s how ANNA KEO’s dream became reality.
She loves being a full time freelancer, inspiring others with interesting IGTV series’ and being a mental health advocate. This year Anna Keo illustration has been a finalist for the world’s largest illustration competitions: FIDA and Draw Fashion.
The brand has strong sustainability values and she only works with brands that consider them as well. Find out more in the ‘sustainability’ section.
