I love simple illustrations that play with negative space and simple shapes to create more intricate effects. Eiko Ojala goes way beyond using paper-cut style to create incredible artwork that plays with shadows adding depth and style to his work. The level of detail and the simplicity is beyond impressive. Eiko Ojala is an illustrator, graphic designer and art director living in Tallinn, Estonia. His graphic design illustrations are particularly aimed towards books and magazines.
DesignChat Guest: Armin Vit
Wednesday, September 8th at 9pm CST — This week’s conversation is supplemented by the thoughts and opinions of our guest, Armin Vit — one half of the dynamic-duo known to most as UnderConsideration (Armin Vit + wife and co-conspirator, Bryony Gomez-Palacio). We have him about a week before his talk at AIGA Chicago’s Design Thinking II, and we hope to search his head a bit, figuring out what makes him such an effective proponent for good design.
Armin Vit’s career has brought him from his original home in Mexico City, to Chicago, and then to New York (working with Michael Bierut at Pentagram). Today he runs projects through UnderConsideration’s Department of Design in Austin, Texas, and does his best to enjoy time spent with his young family.
Vit has written articles for many of the industry’s leading publications like HOW, STEP, and Eye. He’s also created content for Emigre and the UK-based design publication, Creative Review. As if that wasn’t enough, he continues to oversee the creation of several microblogs and design critique sites while touring the world as a welcomed speaker, talking about what else… our favorite topics… design, branding and typography.
There’s a lot more to Vit then we’ve got here, so check out the links at the end of this post and…
