Emil Blum

Designer & Illustrator

Edinburgh, United Kingdom
My name is Emīl Blūm and I am a Latvian designer currently based in Edinburgh (Scotland). I am a recent graduate of HND Visual Communication course at Edinburgh College and have always been passionate about various forms of art, so I have had my fare share of time messing around with photography, street art, fine art and occasional math book doodling. I am a coffee lover, Guinness drinker and Hip Hop fan.
