I’m a sucker for weird, tripped out, colorful imagery–especially in motion. NYC-based multidisciplinary design studio EyeBodega is thoroughly all of those things, describing their work as “post-apocalyptic modernism.” With a focus on work for underground art and music culture, founders Rob Chabebe and Joe Perez have created a body of work spanning print, interactive, photography, and video that is jarring, glitchy, and perfect for the contemporary music scene it often finds itself in.
I came across the work of Hrefna Sigurðardóttir and was surprised to find out she’s still a student. Her bold and colorful portfolio spans from illustrative typography and design to art direction and styling, including several collaborations with photographer Magnus Anderson.
Icelandic artist and illustrator Lóa Hlín Hjálmtýsdóttir doesn’t seem to put a label on her multitude of creative outlets. As a Reykjavik-based visual artist, her work spans from illustration to comics and sculpture. On top of that, she’s also a member of the indie electro-pop group FM Belfast.
I recently came across the work of London-based illustrator Tom Sewell and loved his weird mastery of both gradients and food-related imagery. Tom’s work is an exuberant mix of hard-edged graphic elements and processed photographs that has a unique and contemporary vibe with an odd sense of humor.
This animated spot by London-based studio Formation is a beautifully simple visualization of a story using a bare minimum of representative imagery. Done for the launch of a new recruitment platform called Krow, Formation carries the narrative of the spot along with a series of scenes where solid geometric shapes interact with each other to tell a story without literally illustrating much of anything.
