Despite his young age, Emil Bertell has already established an international reputation, both as an illustrator and as a designer.
He first started out with making fonts, mainly for his amusement. Distributed via his Fenotype web site, the fonts soon started appearing around the world and gained him recognition in several publications.
Besides fonts, Emil has from the beginning built an impressive portfolio of imagery as well. His initial style was only a natural extension to the font designs he produced at the time. But only after ditching the mouse for a pencil, Emil really hit the spot. This peaked in his capture of the grand prix at the Mikkeli Illustration Triennale in 2008. Ever since he has been busy working for a varied international clientele, represented by Agent Pekka.
The two fields of type and image might for a narrow mind seem mutually exclusive. In Emil's work however, the text and image collide and coexist in a truly unique fashion.
