DILLY R. MANAHAN is a Toronto-based designer with ties in streetwear and music. His other projects cover a range of logo designs, movie posters, clothing and packaging.

 

Dilly was born in Mississauga, ON in 1993 and was subsequently raised in multiple suburbs surrounding Toronto. He continues to carry forward the goal to bring the childish creative freedom(s) of his youth to the work he publishes. Celebrating happy accidents and the natural uncertainties of his learning curve, his work is focused around strong context & core ideas. Having already worked with musical artists such as Childish Gambino, Drake, Big Sean and Majid Jordan Dilly has established his unique vision in the world of pop-culture. Specializing in digitally constructed album sleeves, branding and packaging, Dilly continues to mold his young design identity -- slowly finding the philosophical purpose of his work through study, consumption, and execution.
