Jack Hughes

As the official Makers Mgmt gentleman

Jack Hughes enjoys his days working from local cafes around Shoreditch in London. A charming and talented Adonis he is the embodiment of the characters he captures so elegantly and enjoys creating visuals telling stories of glamour, fashion and travel. Working with a refined style and minimal palette Hughes expertly brings focus and confidence to any illustration, he is a popular choice for fashion, beverage and lifestyle brands.
Hughes has illustrated two books in collaboration with fashion writer and journalist Alfred Tong - ‘ The Gentleman’s Guide to Cocktails’ and ‘The Gentleman’s Handbook’. He is also one of forty featured artists in Richard Kilroy’s book ‘Menswear Illustration’ and in 2014 Jack was named a YCN professional awards winner for his on-going work with Savile Row cloth merchant Holland & Sherry. Hughes is the perfect creative partner for brands and clients seeking sophisticated visuals with a drop of mystery.
