Curious characters of various shapes and sizes are represented in illustrations of Linn Fritz, an independent Swedish illustrator, designer and animator based in London, UK. Her approach is minimalistic, and she often uses simple lines and geometric shapes powered by a colorful background to bring her imagery to life.

Linn Fritz is usually depicting female figures, but there is nothing usual about them. Her series GIRLS, for instance, clearly shows her distinctive style, while introducing women with maximized bodies and minimized heads enjoying the everyday situations. Their atypical proportions could be seen as a way of author’s statement about the stereotyped images of women in the society.

Being aware of the inequality around her and her fellow female illustrators within the professional environment, Linn Fritz has become known for her devotion to uplifting the awareness of imbalanced positions in the area of graphic design.

She is also one of the founders of the animation network Punanimation, an initiative that aims to empower, promote and connect women, trans and non-binary people working in the animation and motion industry.

After studying motion graphics at Hyper Island school, Linn Fritz has started to collaborate with many studios and clients around the world, including CNN, Facebook, Google, and others.

Here we present you illustrations from Linn’s personal projects, and if you feel inspired to see more of her uniquely disproportional characters and other work, check out her website or her Dribbble profile.
