The World Collabs #1 - with Rik Oostenbroek

Abduzeedo takes pride in being one of the worlds leading design blogs. Having interviewed a bulk of the most infamous creative geniuses, we want to use our potential to introduce a new star on the Abduzeedo stage …YOU.

Today we introduce The World Collabs. Our new cutting edge Abduzeedo collaboration project, which will give you the possibility to collaborate and compete with the worlds leading designers and artists.

What is "The World Collabs"?

"The World Collabs" will give you the possibility to work with PSD files of established artists. TWC gives you a secret in-view in the workflow of the stars and catapults you miles forward in your journey to design heaven. This way you learn to practice with different shapes, backgrounds, patterns brushes and new styles.

Every month we will offer you an unfinished piece of an experienced and accredited graphic designer to the world. The piece will be unfinished, so you can complete the PSD-file with your very own style. This way every month you can collaborate with the best designers of the world. The final pieces will be judged by the Abduzeedo Team and the artist himself. The three best works will be rewarded with prizes.

Artist of April: Rik Oostenbroek

I am very proud to present the artists for our first Collaboration post: Rik Oostenbroek. Yet only 20 years old, he is one of the most talented upcoming artists. His ability to create awesome shapes and colors is enormous but still a secret to us. He just updated his portfolio with some incredible pieces.
