Dieter Rams Inspired

Just recently I took a trip down to the SFMOMA to view the marvelous exhibit of Dieter Rams and his work with Braun. With his amazing ideals and ethos displayed on the walls in bold words and physically showcased with his Braun product designs on clean displays the experience was inspiring and remarkable. I have found myself steering more towards the idea of minimalism in my recent years as a designer and definitely see myself exploring more of it’s principles in the near future and beyond. A wealth of knowledge was gained after my visit to see Mr. Rams’ timeless work with Braun but much more is to be learned of this ideal. I am working on a post to discuss my observations and to show them photographically. Stay tuned.

Occupy | Greg Eason

Greg Eason’s practice deals with a formal and conceptual dissection of space. His meticulously detailed & characteristically sparse drawings and paintings isolate and monumentalise narrative fragments and translate this into a microscopic frame.

It is incredible how much beauty can be created using such minimal compositions.  It’s designs like these where I forget that I am looking at a 2 dimensional surface. Greg Eason does a nice job creating another layer/dimension to his work orchestrating elements to create illusions using beautiful subtleties that really enhance his work make the pieces come to life. I almost forgot to mention these are pencil on paper. You can purchase his prints here.
