Rubber Penguin Balloon

Design with character

Rubber Penguin is the alias for UK-based designer and illustrator Dan Bailey. I reside just outside of London, in Essex, with my wife, daughter and ridiculously-sized Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle collection.

As well as gathering a colossal array of bandana clad reptiles over the years, I have also been busy accumulating a vast amount of design experience across some of London’s finest creative agencies. I have had the pleasure of working for a plethora of exciting and prestigious brands, ranging from the exciting challenger brands to the billion dollar corporations. My passion lies in producing bold and engaging solutions to creative problems that captivate and make an impact. Whether it is to purchase a product or simply to raise a smile. I love the impact design has on our every day lives and how the slightest change in the craft of something can influence a situation in a whole new way.

I bring the same fundamental philosophies into my illustration as I do with my design. I possess a clean, yet bold style which is recognised by its distinctive line work. I am influenced by retro mascot design and the character styles from the early Warner Bros and more recent Cartoon Network animations.

I have been honoured to work with clients from around the world and have seen my work appear across multiple printed and digital channels globally. It’s been a huge honour and I will never tire of the buzz I get from doing what I do.
