Hannah Berman is an illustrator and stationery designer whose passion for food, color, and flea markets has always been a huge influence on her work.
She received her BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design and spent three years apprenticing as a letterpress printer before starting her own stationery business. As head designer for Pie Bird Press since 2004, she has developed a unique style of illustration that evokes vintage Paint By Number paintings and the linoleum block carvings that launched her career. Characterized by saturated, bold colors and a sense of nostalgia, her illustrations are inspired by everything from Mexican candy wrappers and vintage Jell-O cookbooks to antique Islamic miniatures. In addition to her work with Pie Bird Press, Hannah has collaborated on various products with clients such as Kate Spade New York, Chronicle Books, Girl Scouts of America, and the Nature Conservancy. Hannah is a California girl at heart and loves road trips, competing in pie bake-offs, fireworks, local history, her loyal dog Seymour, and outdoor dinner parties on warm summer nights.Design a Card Learn More
