Joseph Gonzalez from Northwest Indiana sent me an e-mail 2 weeks ago and asked to take a look at his portfolio. Eager to discover new graphic designer I did just that and was impressed by the simplicity of his portfolio combined with the vibrating artworks on display. I can’t really put a name to his style, like Joseph says, he’s not stuck in a particular niche. By the way, Joseph Gonzalez’ identity is called Miracletwentyone and he also runs a nice blog. Make sure to visit the portfolio to get the full experience.

Pablo Alfieri, born in ’82 in Buenos Aires, is an amazing graphic designer and illustrator. His work reminds me sometimes of Pete Harrison (aeiko). I really enjoyed flicking through his portfolio entitled Playful, even though the navigation could be a bit more organic. I especially liked the poster mock-ups. It’s a new take on the whole “I-hold-the-poster-with-both-hands” presentation. You’ll see what I mean.
Linn Olofsdotter is an insanely talented illustrator from Sweden who’s now working in Brazil. She got a tutorial in the August issue of Computer Arts Magazine which should be available soon on their website. If you can’t wait try to get your hands on a copy. It’s well worth it! Linn Olofsdotter combines hand drawn elements with beautiful colour schemes and awesome textures. I really wish I had her talent. This is a premiere for fudgegraphics. Linn is the first female artist to be featured on fudgegraphics, but I hope there’ll be more to come. Below is a selection of her work. More inspiration from her massive portfolio.
If you followed fudgegraphics for a while you will have noticed that I love to feature the works of fellow designers. If you want your designs to gain some free exposure please send me a mail at info[a]fudgegraphics[dot]com or leave a comment on this post. I will gladly take a look and if I like what I see I’ll write about it. You don’t even have to be the artist. I encourage everyone to suggest graphic designers who deserve to get exposure on fudgegraphics.
Nelson Balaban is only 19 years old which makes his art that more impressive. This Brazil based graphic designer works as a freelancer under the alias of XTRABOLD. Visit his portfolio for more inspiration.
Andrio Abero has established 33rpm in 2000 and has been working for the Seatlle music scene for almost 10 years before moving to New York. I love his strong concepts and impeccable execution. His designs are among the greatest music poster graphics I’ve ever seen. Apart from prints Andrio also does web design and illustrations for publications. Take 20 minutes of me-time and dive into his portfolio.
Greig Anderson is a 26 year old graphic designer from Glasgow, Scotland. He showcases all his work at effektivedesign.co.uk. You’ve probably seen some of his great graphics already but I just had to feature him on fudgegraphics. I immediately fell in love with the designs when I first saw his cassette button sets. His imagination is sheer amazing. As always I only showcase some of the best works. Usually there are pieces in one’s portfolio that I don’t like that much, but when it comes to Greig Anderson there isn’t a single piece that isn’t fantastic! I even enjoyed reading his biography. It’s witty and informative. I predict a great future for this fairly young graphic designer.
