Karmen Lam is a Melbourne based designer and illustrator. 
As a child she loved books, but was quick to skim over the stories. Instead, her eyes were glued to the  bouncy typefaces and whimsical illustrations.  As a result, Karmen draws inspiration from her childhood and 90's cartoons to create welcoming, lively designs. With a background in accounting and economics, Karmen has developed a strong attention to detail, which she’d much rather use on Illustrator than Excel spreadsheets!
