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.
A couple weeks back I featured the work of Jonathan Haggard who works under the alias of “skryingbreath”. He dropped me a mail to inform me of his newly launched portfolio at jonathanhaggard.com. It is definitely worth a look.
I’ve had the portfolio of Californian designer Mike Orduna bookmarked for some time now. Today I finally found some sparetime to really look into it and make a selection of his best works. Mike is better known under the alias of FATOE and his style could be described as being messy, vibrant and colourful. I’ll let you decide for yourself how you would like to characterize is. His portfolio is really extensive and his client list includes quite big names. Apart from finding his location (LA) and age (32) there wasn’t much information on him.

Erik Soderquist is 23 years old, comes from Tacoma Washington where he still lives and I would call him an all round artist. One of his designs has been featured in the CMYK Lovers post on fudgegraphics. Erik tries himself at retro grunge and photography with success. This is only a small selection of his portfolio. There’s much more to be seen on deviantArt. The most fascinating thing is to see his progress. Can’t wait to see new material.
So far I’ve only featured the work of individual artists or collectives. Well today I want to present to you the amazing Australian-based design studio Toko. Toko was established in 2001 in Rotterdam (NL) and relocated to Sydney in 2006. They’ve managed to attract big clients such as New York Times, Orange, MTV and Playstation. The portfolio is filled with impressive graphic design pieces. Apart from their main homepage Toko also runs a blog called EnvironMental which showcase signage systems, environmental graphics, architecture and more.
Maciej Hajnrich is Valp’Nietylko. Born in 1981 in Poland, this graphic designer and illustrator gained enough experience to start full-time freelance in Summer 2007. Maciej has been working for clients such as Warner Music Poland, Sony Music Poland as well as directly with bands and festivals. The best thing about his portfolio is that you get an insight into the development of the individual design. By rolling over some images you’ll see the photography without any effects. If only more artists would do this.
