A graduate of the Graphic Design program at Pratt Institute, Alex currently works as a graphic designer for Urban Outfitters, and has a portfolio full of fun stuff.

Moritz Resl is a graphic designer based in Vienna, Austria. A smart designer with a minimalistic style, Moritz does not pollute his work with a number of narrative imagery all sharing one composition and message. Instead, he communicates the concept of his work by creating just a single, simple image. For instance, based on this year’s World Cup event, Moritz created a poster featuring an impression of a torch (edit: vuvuzela! Even better! Thanks for noticing the error guys) by combining various world continents together, all sitting in a sea of blue. Smart, well-articulated, and aesthetically sound.
