My New Favorite Graphic Designer
I first became enamoured with graphic design when The Designers Republic were big in the music scene during the 90′s. Soon after I fell in love with the works of Jermaine Rogers, purchasing a few limited edition silk screened posters from him (it’s a shame I missed seeing him at the San Diego Comic Con this year).
This weekend I was lazily trawling the ‘net when I happened upon graphic designer Olly Moss’ site. His minimalist style immediately captures the essence of the subject matter. Olly’s so good at what he does he makes his work seem so effortless. It’s almost as if he’s channeling the spirit of a 70′s pulp book illustrator or a 1950′s ad man at the creative pinnacle of his career. His work would be equally at home hanging on the wall of an art museum or tacked to a telephone pole in a seedy part of downtown. His visual message is so powerful that the location where it’s hung isn’t important, nor does it detract or enhance the work itself.
If I were a competing graphic designer, I’d hate to meet Olly in a dark alley.
The only question I have is, where can I purchase a print of his Locke poster? Money is (almost) no object.
Seriously Olly…we can do this under the table. No one need know…
