It’s been a while since I last featured an artist. It’s getting harder and harder to find fresh and new talent, but I found just the right artist. Rachel Rivera (b. 1985) is a multi disciplined graphic designer with experience in branding, corporate identity, illustration and fashion. She lives in Vancouver, British Columbia. I am most fond of her typography works. Make sure to visit her portfolio at radcastle.com cause there’s plenty more inspiration in store for you.

I’m sure most of you have come across the incredible designs of digital artist Evgeny Kiselev. His work has been published all over the world such as in Computer Arts (UK), ROJO (Spain) and Beautiful Decay (USA). While many of his art is personal Evgeny managed to work with big companies like SanDisk, Smart and UNICEF. As with most graphic designers it’s quite difficult to find good background information about them. I guess you’ll just have to accept that fact and get inspired by the visual stimulation of the designs. Make sure to visit the portfolio which is filled with plenty more inspirational pieces.
