Rik Oostenbroek, also known as Nkeo, is an awesome graphic designer from the Netherlands. His abstract arts are famous and brought his artwork to the cover of the Computer Arts Magazine. And now the tricky part: He's only 18 years old. 1. First of all we would like to thank you for the opportunity of having an interview. Please tell me a bit about your beginning with design and why did you choose to become an artists? The pleasure is all mine, I'm not used to get interviewed so it's kinda special for me!
Last week we've posted an article about Bruno Borges, a brazilian who has been developing a great work and that made us very proud to publish it here. Bruno gave us the pleasure of answering a few questions, talking about his style, how he deals with his projects and also why he'd decided to work with design. Check this interview out, and to get to know a little bit more about him, visit www.oit8doi2.com.
Oit8Doi2 is the portfolio of Bruno Borges, an awesome brazilian designer, who's been doing some great work for important magazines, sweet party flyers and paper toys, among other cool stuff. Hopefuly we all can learn a little bit from his work. He's style is neat, some vintage stuff, cool t-shirt designs, some nice experiments. He sure knows his thing. :)
It's been some time since we had someone interviewed here at Abduzeedo, but the wait is now over, and sure it was worth waiting. We had the opportunity to talk to James White, surely one of the most innovative designers out there. Jame is a very talented, experienced designer from Nova Scotia, you probably have already seen his work and if you are like me you must have gotten very impressed with his style. And now we can learn a bit more from him.
My last article I showed some of the coolest designs I saw in 2007. There were really amazing pieces of work in that list, from designers from all parts of the world and various styles. Among all of them there were 4 Brazilian designers, and one of them is called Bruno Fujii. I got to the opportunity to talk to him and we sort of became friends. I really like his style mixing illustration with watercolor paints and vectors, I even wrote a tutorial trying to reproduce his style.
This last december was a bit odd, I was robbed, they took my laptop and 2 iPods, I had all my backups and all my clients jobs in those, for sure one of the most delicate situations in my life, I didn’t know what to do. So I decided to start a blog and save some of the jobs I done and share them with everyone. This would allow me to promote myself too. In these last 12 months I’ve seen lots of really good designs, they have inspired me and helped me to get over this unfortunate incident.
I've been working with Photoshop for some time now. I really like the software and what can be achieved using it. What amazes me more is the quality of works that were done using it. There are people who really know how to push the boundaries of the tool and produce astonishing pieces of work.
