We cannot talk about Shout's work without first discussing the choice of name, Shout. Shouting is for people who need to yell to be noticed. But Shout's work does not scream, it invites you in. It is subtle, brilliant, surprising, quiet, and gorgeous all at the same time. Shout is my favorite whispering artist.
—Paul Buckley, Vice President and Executive Creative Director, Penguin Books
I love the use of wide open spaces in Shout's illustrations. His minimalist approach is not only elegant, but smart and gets to the heart of the story. He makes my job easy!

With simple, bold and graphic strokes, Shout turns complicated concepts into colorful solutions.
