Maxim Usik

About
The global nature of Maxim’s client base suits him just fine. Born in Russia, Maxim moved to Finland to complete his studies. After working in various design studios in Helsinki he became a freelance illustrator and took off on a world tour, working remotely for clients while exploring South America, India, Spain, Asia and several European countries.

Maxim studied at the West-Lapland College of Visual Communications and then the Kemi-Tornio University of Applied Science where he received a degree in Visual Art. He’s inspired by Vincent Van Gogh, Steve Jobs, Henry Miller and yoga.

Approach


Beginning with pencil sketches, Maxim draws and inks his images the traditional way before scanning them in and carrying out the coloring process on his laptop.

Style


Maxim’s clear, slightly whimsical line drawings come to life with color palettes that juxtapose cool and warm tones, while the work itself is marked out by its humor, detail and wit.


SELECTED CLIENTS:
Maxim works for leading publications around the world including BBC Focus, Quanta, Nastroenie, Capital, Blue Wings, Helsigin Sanomat and Talouselämä.
