/ What's new in the design digital culture

Nigel Buchanan *

Nigel Buchanan lives in Sydney and works in a big old warehouse with a bunch of other illustrators. He likes the company of others – that’s really nice to know.

He has won awards – that’s really nice. He has served these type of clients The Wall Street Journal, MTV,The New York Times, TIME magazine, Money Week Paris and The Radio Times in London – that’s really nice too.

_______

But what is even more nice – is the quality of his work. Such finesse. Such control. A cross between caricacturist and real-life portraitist – what is even more nicer – is the depth of his concepts.

Moving marvels

Justin Mezzell is a super talented illustrator and graphic designer who make things (for a stellar brochette of clients). Some of them move. Some not.

His style is very simple yet in the simplicity there are a lot perceivable details. Much akin to ‘icon’ design in trending ‘flat’ design.

I really enjoy his little moving marvels.

Elliott Golden

Elliott Golden sees illustration as the creation of a strong idea paired with an engaging aesthetic as the goal.

His work is mostly editorial in nature and thus, exerts an extra amount of pressure to capture the essence of an article / essay.

Very experienced obviously.

Steph says hello

Steph Says Hello is the portfolio of Stephanie Baxter, a freelance illustrator living & working in Leeds, West Yorkshire.

Her hand-lettering projects are a joyous overload of pen (digital or not), pencils, chalk and inky goodness with loads of curlicues and capitalized letters.

Typography applied over edibles?

Freshly.

Jon Juarez

Jon Juarez is not a writer but does storyboard his ideas. He is not a writer but uses words to ‘dream’ into images.

His sources of inspiration are seemingly unrelated: word lookups – internet research – space pictures – geology – clothing, etc.

He is not chaotic but most illustrations have a high density of chaotic elements and repeated patterns.

His world is one where ink and pencils exert a benevolent tyranny. The urge to express his ‘space’ is rich and deep.

OH = Colorfully

The dazzling portfolio of Olaf Hajek – born in Germany and hopping between London and NYC – is as colourful as it is diversed in disciplines, topics, industries – he is commissioned for.

He’s done it all: author, editorial covers, art shows (he paints too), packaging, window dressing installations, etc.

Bundle of joy

Pascal Campion brings in a bundle of joy. He creates a ‘new’ illustration every day – day in and day out. I’ve been following his work for years – and must admit – his sketches make me smile too.

His intense passion for his family is the flame and inspiration in his work, and has become – one of his hallmarks.

Such humanity in large strokes – such mastering of his style – such generosity.

_______

Get some joy – buy his prints!

Souther Salazar

Souther Salazar artwork transports the viewer into a vibrant and endless world of overlapping narratives and dreamscapes — half-remembered, half-imagined places “where stories can develop and take on a life of their own.”

I love to be transported in the realm of impossible possible – a profound trait of being a child – and a defining quality of a creative adult.

_______

Ready for a kiddy room posters.

Brian Rea

Brian Rea is the former art director for the Op-Ed page of the New York Times. He has produced drawings and designs for books, murals, fashion, posters, music videos, and magazines around the world.

His illustrations are naive in style – as if a gifted kid was at work. But there is most def a deliberate conceptual mind behind.

_______

He illustrated this animated call to action film for Building Tomorrow, an organization dedicated to building schools in East Africa.

Mesmerizing

Mesmerizing! Ivan Markovic paper sculptures are not only technical marvels and poignant but also a demonstration of 3D vision mastery.

“The very properties of paper are a reflection of the human condition, with aspects of strength and great weakness, as opposed to the imperviousness of stone or metal.”
