Shawn Hileman, last name pronounced (HIL-men) with a very strong German accent, is a Philadelphia-based designer, specializing in printmaking.

Hileman is ‘more-than-enough’ dedicated to every single piece: his business cards, for example, are printed on chipboard which is tediously sanded down. Hileman’s attention to detail makes his work clever and flawless. After staring at one of his art pieces for a good minute or so, it’ll have some people going, ‘Ohhh … I get it, now’. And other people: ‘Huh, I don’t get it. Oh wait, wait, I DO! I DO! Yayyy’.
