The work of brothers Christoph and Florin Schmidt — aka. Low Bros — is insanely detailed and meticulous, as is most of their thinking behind it. What a treat it was to chat with them about their views on the area of conflict between tradition and progress, why they've started to question the traditional gallery model, and their first real design crush with hip-hop and graffiti.
We chat with Freelance graphic designer (and co-owner of Father Coffee), Nicholas Christowitz. We get into good clients, bad clients and the ones that surprise you and do a complete 180. Plus he tells us about a French translation gone wrong 😰 and his typical working day which includes falafel-runs, Zelda and distressing over global news (same!)
We chat with our #TDKeurope van designer Gabby Lord about empowering and respecting women in the industry, typesetting in Japanese, plus she shares her backlog of face-palm moments 🤦🏼♀️
A big congrats to Amateur(Dot)Rocks, one of our 30 TDK Awards’ winners for 2018. A graduate duo from Berlin, their work was chosen by Will from It's Nice That: “Great portfolio from start to finish.

Aren't we glad that happened! We're loving Raúl's patterned illustrations and colourful style.

Maggie Tang is somewhat of an Australian legend. Find me someone who doesn’t love Maggie and we’ll buy you a beer. After heading up projects at Frost* and Houston, Maggie made her way across the oceans to Berlin (okay, via plane) to step out of traditional studio roles into an in-house position. Now Head of Brand Design at a music-tech company Ableton, we're fascinated more about Maggie's day-to-day and what type of creative she gets to work on. To find out more, read on...
For AGES we've been following the work of Glenn Garriock co-founder of the ten year old blog FormFiftyFive. Originally form Scotland, and now living in Germany, we're stoked to be able to interview him for TDK and hear more about the new FFF podcast, his lego collection and top advice for students - one to bookmark. Also please listen to his podcast as he has a great Scottish accent, wink wink!
