Alex Varanese- Bent Curcuit Type

Alex Varanese illustration

Typographer and illustrator Alex Varanese combines 3d techniques with traditional print design techniques in circuit bent type series of illustrations. I like the consistent and specific use of red in all of Alex’s work. Im not sure what you would call the shade but it’s an iconic palate that’s modern and vintage at the same time.  Alex also has a nice array of custom type on his site. More images after the jump.

We at Beautiful/Decay would like to consider Alex Bec a runner-up for our “Submit your Artist” contest from two weeks back. His work was way too awesome not to post (thanks for letting us know, Gringo)! Alex’s creations consist mainly of typographic illustrations, colors and shapes that pop–all entirely from cut paper and sometimes even masking tape. Major props for patience and intense precision.

Eric Carlson - Figures From Life

Eric Timothy Carlson is a renaissance man interested in all forms of art and design. His “Figures from Life” illustrations are some of the most beautiful I have seen today. Carlson reinvents already existing images by integrating simple, but bold forms that obscure or transform the subject. Also lovely are his print and typographic projects that he does in collaboration with Michael Cina. Make sure you check out his work in our upcoming book Supernaturalism!

A shut book is just a block

Check out Amandine Alessandra’s clever use of objects to create typography. I have to admit that they could be at times hard to read… especially her project “Take a seat and say something” (you can see it after the jump) but it’s really refreshing to see the transformation of mundane things when you look at them in another perspective.

I love these (kind of bad but) great posters by Young Adult Contemporary Lifestyle, a pan-scandinavian coalition of greatness. I’m a big fan of its designers, linked at the end of this post.
