Colours tell a lot about someone’s personality. So in an effort to learn a bit more about my favourite designers and bloggers I started a 1-question mass interview to ask them what their favourite colour is. Although the colours they chose are very different these 40 creative minds have one thing in common. They are at the top of their game and I respect them deeply for their contributions to the design community. So please visit their websites/blogs and discover outstanding articles, free high quality resources and gorgeous designs.
As a bonus I made an A2 poster containing all the favourite colours with the respective names for you to download as pdf for free. All you need to do is take it to your local print shop or simply use your inkjet at home to print it.
Taobot is an internationally acclaimed studio that specializes in interactive and graphic design. They work with clients from all over the world on engaging and emotional experiences. The studio is lead by Danny Franzreb and Holger Grünwald, who both have many years of experience in the field of design.
With over 100 members in the Fudgegraphics User Showcase Flickr Group it is time for another roundup. I hand picked my favourite designs submitted which I want to show you now. If you wish to be featured in a future showcase all you need to do is join the group. Thank you very much to all the members and their inspirational designs. This article is for you!
Jonathan Haggard, aka skryingbreath, just redesigned and updated his portfolio. He was one of the first featured artist here on fudgegraphics and I just can’t get enough of his retro graphics. Please visit jonathanggard.com to see all his latest designs and his gorgeously minimalistic website.
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.
I discovered the talented UK-based illustrator Danny Allison while reading the latest issue of Computer Arts Projects magazine. I did a quick search in my feed reader and to my surprise none of the blogs I subscribe to have showcased his work. So for me and my blogging knowledge this is a premiere. This makes Danny perfect to be the first featured artist here on fudgegraphics in 2009.
Other than that Danny has a background in photography I did not find an more information about him unfortunately. The most important thing is his illustrations anyway and so I won’t bother you anymore. Here’s a small collection of his designs to get you inspired. More can be found at dannyallison.co.uk
Colorcubic is the vision of founding partners Christy Lai and Michael John. The design studio is based in Portland, OR, United States. I did not find any more information on them. Ah well, just look at their beautiful design and get inspired. What I like most about the art is that each piece is different and yet they manage to keep a consistent syle (if that makes any sense). For even more inspiration visit Colorcubic on Behance and Flickr.
