Travis Stearns

Travis Stearns is a force to be reckoned with in the graphic and typeface design community, since he entered the ‘internet scene’ in 2006 & subsequently began working at You Work For Them, designing typefaces. Since then he has worked with Dwell, Nylon, Ghostly International and Wired, among others, and won the Print Magazine New Visual Artist award for his amazing work. Many of his fonts have strong roots in historical typefaces (calligraphic, handwriting & roman) but are unique and completely contemporary. Travis’s fonts have become somewhat prolific, spanning almost every inch of the internet and have made their way into major catalogs and publications.

 

Toby Neilan

Toby Neilan creates his work through a process of photography and digital manipulation, introducing hand drawn elements, geometric forms and a strong sense of colour, combined with expressive mark making. Recent developments have seen him drawing with a dot to produce pared down visuals with a more free painterly result.

Viktor Hachmang

Viktor Hachmang is a designer and illustrator based in The Hague, The Netherlands. Though visually influenced by ’60s psychedelic posters and ’80s postmodern design, he takes his inspiration from a wide variety of sources and his work often alludes to famous artists and artworks. Central to his work is the illustrative imagery which focuses strongly on decorative details. The concept of collage is also apparent, as his portfolio is a deliberate hodgepodge of various eras in art history and different ways of image making. Hachmang combinines the banal and the beautiful in one image, often mixing intellectual and naive imagery of strict geometry with hand drawn forms. He also co-edits the blog theeyestheysee, an ongoing collection of artists, artworks and other sources of inspiration.

Barbara Wojirsch

Barbara Wojirsch designed album covers for jazz/avant record label ECM through the late 1970's and early 1980's. Her hand drawn, handmade covers stood out at the time from the highly processed, highly stylized covers being published in rock and electronic music at the time, and their individuality stands the test of time.
