A collage of a few of their work

They all vary in techniques and mediums, but I like their styles. They each have a unique way of working and presenting their work, which I can learn from, as it sets them apart from other people.
I’d like to see what makes each artist unique, and how they make their work their own.


Dialogue Studio: Armin Hofmann

Armin Hofmann has a very distinctive style to his work. Using few colours and basic shapes, he creates simplistic yet unique designs, which have quite a modernistic feel to them.

As Canary Wharf approached, the masses of business people simultaneously shuffled towards the entrance. You could tell this was their turf.

New Faces

On Tuesday’s lesson we also got to hear and see some people’s work, which would help us give a few ideas.
The people we were introduced to were, Matthew Carter, John Maeda and Wim Crouwel.

However firstly we looked at William Blake and his poem of London, to get an idea of different ways of describing London.
