Here are my inspirations for project Ego. I’ve always been very interested in Japanese/Chinese (Asian) graphic design with a modern touch. Simplified designs to tell my story using clean lines, shapes and bold colours. Here are a few designers whose work I really love and have decided to incorporate their styles into my work.
I really loved Ikko Tanaka’s style. It is not easy (I have tried) to balance shapes and bold colours the way he does it. He is able to fuse traditional Japanese art with modern aesthetics and that’s why I really look up to him.
Henn Kim is a tattoo artist that i have been following on Instagram. I’m a big fan of her work. She draws with very clean lines and uses negative and positive spaces. I also love how she is able to tell her stories through very symbolic items like a matchbox or stapler.
He is famous for his use of colours. He is able to create a space by picking our specific detail with the use of light, colour tones and colour blocking.
A young illustrator. I love her style and how she mixes Japanese/Korean manga style with graphic design and strong colours, mostly red, to bring out an emotion in her drawings.
