It’s something I do for myself, I don’t really care if people know my work or design. I’m just trying to explore visual ideas and visual language.
That’s how artist/designer Michael Cina describes his work, which I find personally inspiring. I’ve been a big fan of Michael’s work since I noticed his covers for Ghostly records. He does an amazing job of bridging that gap between artist and designer, creating abstract paintings and pieces of art while at the same time creating ultra minimal design pieces that uses fonts like you can’t imagine. It’s the synthesis between these mediums that make him such a talent and one of my biggest influences.
The video above may be a few months old but it’s certainly worth your time. Michael is a pretty prolific creator and it’s great to hear a bit about how he works. I kind of wish this video was about four time longer, I want to hear more about his work and process!
