Hello and Welcome to the colourful world of Shanti Sparrow.

Sparrow has been working in Australia and internationally since 2009 and is currently working independently and partnered with an amazing Sydney boutique studio called Bug Communication. Sparrow collaborates with many not-for-profit clients that create awareness and raise funds for important humanitarian, environmental and research based causes. Shanti is known for her conceptual design for appeals and has specialised in generating tag lines, producing unique aesthetics and creating engaging forms of visual communication to reach the target audience.

Sparrow has a vibrant and bold approach to design. She creates brands filled with individuality and personality. Her expressive typography and confident colour palettes create memorable and iconic branding. 

As an illustrator Sparrow has a unique illustration style that involves scanned textures, vector patterns and digital collage. Her subjects mainly involve animals and nature. These enchanting characters all have names and background stories and are inspired by her travels. Sparrow has published 4 children books, greetings card, games, calendars and a range of other merchandise.

Sparrow loves animals and is the proud owner of a rescue dog named Archie. He was adopted at the age of 5 when he was urgently surrendered to a shelter. Archie, now 12, inspires her everyday. If you wish to look at this ridiculously cute dog please follow Sparrow at Instagram @shanti_sparrow.
