Follow Frenzy- Ben NewmanWednesday, July 24, 2013
This weeks follow frenzy is the popular designer and illustrator- Ben Newman.
Newman is another designer I heard about through my studies in college. Again New,man was brought to my attention during my advanced vector graphics and was really quite inspired by his illustrations. While growing up his father worked as a tool maker. From this he has been able to work on a project with his father by creating 3D wooden masks.
In Newman's work he normally uses a collection of geometric shapes and limited colour palettes. He also finds inspirations in folklore's, stories and from general life interactions. He also has a long list of influential designers and artists that have inspired him on his website, a few of these people include Picasso, Charley Harper and Jim Flora.
In his recent work, Newman has been making the final preparations to have his next booked released in October this year. The book that he has been working on is called Professor Astro Cat's Frontiers of Space. He has also developed a line of illustrations and branding for a coffee company. This year he has also spoken at the festival Offset in Dublin.
