PRATEEK VATASH: COLOUR COLOUR COLOUR

I could repeat the word “colour” for a month and it wouldn’t be enough; Prateek Vatash knows. This Bangalore (India) based graphic designer controles tones, textures, shades and light games like no one else. He doesn’t just combine colours that we all know they’re going to look good together, but in a moment of experimentation with volumes and palettes, he makes orange and pink look like an amazing lisergic sundown and not a badly chosen ice cream. His participation at 36Days Of Type is also worth having a look at. So much talent out there and how we love that.

CRTOMIR JUST: LOOKS LIKE GOLD

We don’t really know if it happens in general or it’s some sort of thing going on with us, but sometimes it seems that 3D gets to show more than what our eyes can look at, understand and process; exactly what Crtomir Just does. This Slovenian artist and designer creates plastic, colourful, squishy and, above all, golden worlds. Very gold. Such gold. Wow. Our inner magpie is well happy.

ANNY WANG: SWEDEN’S LIVING A CELEBRATION

I get the feeling that vikings must have been worse than Berghain doormen, only letting an exclusive group of perfect people settle and procreate in Sweden. I mean, that country is not normal. People are from outter space, social conditions are like a dream and they also have as much Arts and Design to bore a bunch of reindeers.
Anny Wang belongs to that generation that opened the 90s in Sweden and now that she’s 26 her list of clients has names such as Nike, The New York Times or Refinery29. All her 3D makes you want to adopt it and hug it. This designer, that lives between Copenhagen and Malmö, has a very Swedish future in front.

PLEID: NATIONAL TALENT

We’re very used to read articles about English, American, Nordic or Swiss talent. That’s maybe because they’re more people if you sum them up (you might as well kick a stone and 432 designers come out from underneath) but, beloved friends, you know that Spain is a big country in everything related to creativity and the Arts… and Spanish omelettes and ham. Today, one more time, we want to talk to you about national talent. About Juanma Mota, in particular; with his fine taste and his newly founded Pleid studio he’s got a space in the market and in our hearts. Sounds cheesy, we are, but listen to me and click on the link below. We’ll talk afterwards.

MUOKKAA: SHIMMER IN THE EYES

Since 2010 we’ve spent some good hours glued to Instagram, no matter if it’s to upload our mirror selfies, to make people jealous of those 8 cinnamon rolls we’re about to eat or to promote our latest work to an audience whose origin ranges from the smallest town to the coolest loft in Brooklyn. We also “invest” hours being nosey in everything that pops on our newsfeed; fun is ensured no matter what you follow, tits, arses or Art. Art on Instagram is Muokkaa‘s case. This Madrid based Spanish designer makes an effort and each and every one of his posts melts our retinas in pleasure. He actually makes us want to learn how to 3D. Fart for everyone, friends.

UMBERTO DAINA: BYE PAINT, HELLO 3D

They say, they gossip, that Microsoft is going to make to his fantastic, nostalgic and borbonic (’cause he looks like the inbred outcome of two far cousins) Paint programme what common sense did to blu-ray; erase it from History taking with it  afternoons, presentations and 3rd grade essay titles full of fun and cognitive and eye suffering.
We don’t know if it’s true, if, while stroking a white cat, Bill Gates will throw away one of the last reminders of our pre-Adobe childhood. A whole generation started there; maybe Umberto Daina did too. This Italian 3D master, graphic designer and filmmaker, belongs to a world that is sweet and disturbing; it’s like that 2007 trend of pink skulls, but with nothing to do with it, exactly. His hairy figures, flying sprays, his pinks and blues convince us that the future, at least, looks nice.

ANTON HJERTSTEDT: THE ABSTRACT RENDER

When you think about the word “render”, what does come up to your mind? In very talented graphic designer Anton Hjertstedt‘s brain abstract shapes, colours and easy to recognise elements appear; he then mixes them all forming very surprising 3D images we have only seen in dreams before. Hjertstedt is even naughty; phallic shapes pop up in playful shades amongst other fun structures and textures that generate his own world of adventures. What it is clear is that, like it or not, this artist has spent “butt-hours” in front of the computer developing what has turned out to be his own personal style. We love it and it inspires us!

BARNÉY BAKER: HE LIKES EVERYTHING ELSE

“Barnéy does not care about good coffee, your beard, 12-hour workdays, dog strollers, credit cards, white drama, Lil B, and cats (excluding kittens obviously)”. He likes everything else. That’s how Baker describes himself in his webpage and that’s why we like him.

Besides, Barnéy Baker has a portfolio that includes names like Nike, Adidas, New Era or Microsoft (yeah, I know, it’s amazing), loads of awards and an impeccable taste. Moreover, he’s created what from I want to adopt as a pet; that stone with a pair of eyes so full of happiness that make me want to love. Just look at those eyes; it’s a good hearted stone. I can’t even resist. Baker is another name on our altar of Design.

3D EVEN IN CLOTHES. MASHALLAH.

Every once in a while it is nice to find experimental pieces such as those of Mashallah Design and Linda Kostowski. From particular stories and experiences, they have wanted to create unique pieces that could be sculptures on show at a museum or even the most extravagant item of clothing in your wardrobe. They have opened themselves to the new technologies and to the multiple opportunities that are offered by 3D design (all of which is interpreted with a poetic touch – see piece NO 419, which uses a story about wolves as its inspiration). We hope that they will continue on this path and we are excited to see what will be the next book they will use as inspiration. Any suggestions?
