About

Hello, I’m Brittany Coxon, an artist, designer, illustrator and photographer based in Newcastle upon Tyne. I make websites, graphics, paper cut art and many other things.

I have made websites for artists, educators and researchers. Including work for artist Eric Thompson, Applied Comics Etc. and several Newcastle University research websites. In creating these websites I have gained experience working in WordPress and TERMINALFOUR, creating templates, graphics and content for each project.

My work in Graphics and illustration includes logo design for Hairy Bear Coffee and The Sunk’n’Foal. I also make comics, my work can be found in several Paper Jam Comics Collective anthologies, Asteroid Belter (the companion comic for the British Science Festival, 2013) and in the form of mini comics, which are a brilliant format that anyone can (and should) make.

As well as drawing I have helped edit and produce comics and other artwork, preparing them for both print and web. This includes the previously mentioned Paper Jam Comics Collective anthologies and Asteroid Belter but also Spineless (a comic created in partnership with the Great North Museum: Hancock), School Walking Maps for Living Streets and an interactive walking map for the Late Shows.

I also make things out of paper and card. Most recently 3D mathematical shapes activity kits, each comes with six cut out shapes ready to fold and glue using the instructions. Great gift for kids but also for grown ups, I’ve discovered it’s really satisfying to create 3D shapes out of nothing but card and a bit of glue. My other papercraft works include a set of burlesque inspired art, each based on a real performer. I’ve also made a short series of work based on Red Riding Hood, originally made for the Invisible Beasts exhibition held at Creative up North. I also make a range of paper cut greetings cards.

Want to work with me on an interesting new project? I’d love to hear from you, contact me.
