Illustration, Graphic Design, and Best-Selling Product Design

My name is Philip Turncliff, and I'm a man capable of wearing many hats. Chief among them are graphic design, digital illustration, and product design!

I've spent the better part of the past three years in product design, where I’ve produced over a dozen Amazon best selling products targeted towards families with children. I’ve secured the Top 100, Top 50, Top 10, and Top 5 spots with several more. Before going into product design, I worked in print design. In have excelled in both fields, and proven with sales numbers that I know what it takes to stand out in the mass market.

One of my proudest achievements has been growing a startup toy company from just under a million dollars in revenue the year before I on-boarded to earning nine million dollars in a single quarter the next. I did this by analyzing the mass market for the best-selling trends in illustration and in subject matter. My proficiency in gathering and processing this data allowed me the opportunity to spearhead trend-tracking initiatives that secured several lucrative retail contracts, and I led several inter-departmental reports breaking down strategies for future projects & products.

My experience is extensive, and includes stationery design, toy design, print design, seasonal items, business collateral, medical illustration, brochures, catalogs, logos, mascots, branding direction, indoor/outdoor decor, camping gear, swimming gear, and even costumes! I also have experience working with licensed IPs, and have made designs and exclusive content for big-name brands such as Disney, Target, WalMart, Coleman, and Costco, to name just a few!

I am excited to extend my services to a range of esteemed clients and pride myself on bringing an unbeatable work ethic, exemplary communication, and quick delivery speeds along with first-class design & illustration sure to help any product stand out on shelves!

5' Santa Yard Inflatable

As the lead artist & designer on our Yard Inflatables line, I knew I would have to really pull out the stops for the big man himself. All four of our 2017 Winter line became Amazon best sellers- Santa rightfully taking his place as the #1 seller!

Game Grumps 5th Anniversary Illustration

A vector illustration done for the Game Grumps Official 5th Anniversary Charity Zine! The zine's proceeds went to benefit St. Jude's Children's Hospital. I chose to illustrate Arin and Dan's play-through of Gubble, a nostalgic computer game for me! I did my best to try and capture the unique background aesthetics of the game. I still wonder if people noticed that the blue brick road is in the shape of a 5....

T-Rex Costume

In 2018, I was in charge of roughly 90% of our children's costumes after our success with my dragon design in 2017. Despite their unfortunate late release, our line of 3 dinosaurs did very well, with the Triceratops breaking into the Top 50, and the T Rex capping out at #6 in the Children's Costume category on Amazon!

This fun and kooky project was a blast to design. Shortly after its release, it skyrocketed to the top of its category as the best selling Kids' Party Hat on Amazon. Its sibling, our two-pack turkey hat (which I also designed), became a best seller in Kids' Costume Hats!

Harvest Playmates

I have mixed feelings about Thanksgiving, as it brings pain for many Native Americans. I decided that if I had to draw Thanksgiving characters, I would do my best to use realistic skin tones & features. I still hope this is what made the product a best-seller in 2018. The Wampanoag people have a quite sad history re: America's colonization. I hope I inspired children to learn about Thanksgiving's history with this set, and welcome everyone to read about the Wampanoag, Patuxet, & Tisquantum.
