  1. Charles has a really unique style, I love the angular aspect of his designs and the 3D effect. The portraits are really interesting as although they suggest 3D shapes, they’re actually like an optical illusion in that if you tried to make it, it’s not possible. I’d be really interested in seeing the portraits in collage or low relief using lots of different textures or materials such as glass, wood and fabric, or even just wood by itself would look incredible. The Geometric Type and Nike Tee typography are stunning pieces of work. Really simple ideas but so effective. I’d love to see the Nike Tee made into an actual 3D sculpture, floating in the middle of a room.
