FYI Monday: Beautiful Lightning Design by Patrick Monkel

This post is part of the For Your Inspiration Monday Series showcasing the most inspiring designs out there. Each week a new artist or design style will be presented in order to get your creative juices flowing for the upcoming week. I hope you enjoy the series.
Patrick Monkel is a freelance graphic designer from the Netherlands who works under the name of Monk Studio. You might have come across his website which has been featured in many “minimal webdesign showcases”. Today, I want to focus on Patrick’s actual design work. His style is very popular at the moment, using all the lightning techniques many want to learn. What I like most about the work is that Patrick Monkel manages to get very vibrant images with the use of mute colours. This just goes to show the amazing talent of this outstanding designer. Find below a selection of his work. Make sure to visit Patrick’s portfolio for even more inspiration.
