Illustrator interview: Alice Stevenson creates artwork for Amy’s Mobile Kitchen

Illustrator Alice Stevenson talks about her creative involvement in the branding for Amy's Mobile Kitchen.

Written by Amelia Gregory

Amys Mobile Kitchen 1
During February 2016 the vegetarian and organic food experts of Amy's Kitchen bring you Amy's Mobile Kitchen - a vintage van that serves delicious Amy's soups and chillis across London, Manchester and Glasgow, free to those who make a donation to local charitable organisations. The delicious & warming soups & chillis are accompanied by outstandingly good bread from local artisan bakeries.

Joining this project is artist Alice Stevenson, who has previously created illustrations for fashion designer Marc Jacobs. Alice has created a bespoke logo for Amy's Mobile Kitchen as well as designing the bright illustrations that adorn the van, making it impossible to miss as it travels the UK streets. She is a London based illustrator, artist and writer whose creative output is informed by her observations of the world around her, using striking colour palettes, playful compositions and decorative forms to communicate ideas and narratives. Below, Alice Stevenson kindly tells us more about this lovely project.
