Victoria Rose Ball

Victoria is an illustrator, designer and typographer based in Edinburgh, and graduated from Edinburgh College of Art in 2016. She has always been fascinated by all things building and architecture related – where better to develop that fascination through art than the beautiful city of Edinburgh?! Victoria creates fun and colourful illustrations, often mixing up perspectives and colour schemes to give a quirky twist on the classic landmarks of a city.

Victoria’s sculpture is inspired by the twists and turns of the streets of Edinburgh and her love for creating out of the ordinary perspectives within the form of illustration, Victoria chose to focus on creating a map of the city on her giraffe. Edinburgh is the perfect location for admiring beautiful architecture, so it seemed a no-brainer to focus on that for an art trail. The design came about through research into favourite locations within the city – tourist hotspots, beautiful landmarks, amongst those which hold special significance to Victoria. Through years of illustrating digitally, Victoria has honed in on her favourite colour palettes to work with – picking out colours which highlight the fun and playfulness of a design, while remaining somewhat true to life.
