Our guest today is a famous designer Andrew Nye. "I'm learning 3D right now, but vector for me still provides the best flexibility for conceptual images.” – he says. Learn more about Andrew Nye, his illustrations after the jump.
My name is Andrew Nye and I am a designer and image maker based in East London.
I studied Graphic design at Greenwich University where I was drawn to the Graffiti subculture and Banksy / Ron English style conceptual art. They had a refreshing straightforward honesty and cut through to the heart. I love the clever simplicity of negative space logo designs too. My original inspiration was to create a colourful Banksy that had honest messages but a bit less confrontational and political…and less gritty… maybe not Banksy at all then!
Most of my work on the web is personal self expression or random concept experiments (i have a series of 10 or so musical birds i'm just finishing up now - not sure why!).
I like to experiment with styles for my work as a branding designer creating visual identities, but with image making i've always thought style can only take you so far and a good idea lasts longer, so i tend to focus more on the idea…
I'm learning 3D right now, but vector for me still provides the best flexibility for conceptual images.
