You know we go crazy for bold colors here at TDK, so when we came across freelance artist & illustrator, Oriol Massaguer we wanted to scroll through his work forever. Here, Oriol shares with us his experience during the time he closed down his website and all social networks to focus on finding his style, plus he argues the limitations of digital, and strongly advises you 'Be a hardworking rebel!'
We chat with abstract illustrator Guille Manchado about failure (always one of our favorite topics), his plan to grow his online presence this year, and his quite linear progression through the visual arts — from painting to graffiti to illustration to graphic design!
We find so many amazing people through our #TDKpeepshow tag and Jorge León from Séptimo is one of them! We were super excited to see more of Jorge's work and get an insight into Séptimo. National Geographic, team scaling, and Nike are just a few topics we get into — so dive in and have a read.
Domestic Data Streamers
We had a chat with the guys from Domestic Data Streamers— it's pretty amazing how they tell stories through data! I would spend a fair bit of time digging through their work. Have a read to hear more on what they do, passion projects they're working on and their take on inters (apparently it'd pretty great as 63% of their mums would do it!)
Are you on the hunt for a good design time? Fancy a bit of sexy design work? Haha—look no further than achos! They have their very own tinder profile and have been up to some naughty things. We had a chat with Ben from achos, who filled us in on all the dirty details ;D
How lucky are we! We got to have a bit of a chat with the legendary Borja Martinez, creative director and founder of the studio Lo Siento. Borja loves to get his hands dirty and play with nature—clearly this has had some inspiration into the playfulness that comes across in the studios work :D Read on to hear some of Borja's awesome advice on being a young designer and some good tips on who to keep and eye on and who you should be reading.
We chat with the colourful trio at Codea Studio about how they came together; their super cool side project @eeeeeeeeee_disposablecameras (that's 10 e's incase you're wondering); and their number 1 piece of advice for students - 'jump off a cliff, and try flying' (metaphorically of course!).
