Neil Hubert is a commercial artist. He was born and raised in the midwest, and received a BFA in graphic design and illustration from Grand Valley State University in 2007. He spent much of his early 20s in restaurant kitchens and the back room of a bike shop, before cutting his teeth in the ad & design firms of Grand Rapids, Michigan.

In 2013 he packed up his strong work ethic, no bullshit ethos, and laid-back attitude and moved to California. There he attended Doc Guthrie’s sign painting course at Los Angeles Trade Tech College. In 2015 Neil partnered with Mathew Foster to form Radical Co-Operative. Based in LA’s chinatown RADCO is focused on building ground–up brand identities for emerging businesses, and bringing fresh eyes and distinctive graphics to long-standing brands.

Neil’s style has been described as analog, old school, hand-done, or his personal favorite: “blue collar”. He has a fluency in illustration and hand lettering combined with a graphic designer’s foundation in layout, composition, and typography. He creates art for commercial purposes: unique graphics that reveal the human hand.

Neil has worked with clients large and small, independently, at agencies, and in-house. He has honed his practice of commercial art over many years. This practice stretches from screens to printed matter, physical products, signage, interiors, and beyond.
