Swedish designer/digital illustrator Niklas Lundberg has updated his portfolio with more complex layered digi-visuals. He also now has prints of some of his work available. I am curious how much detail comes through in the physical print. It’s always something akin to magic when you receive a complex digital illustration in a physical print format to see just how much detail is contained within the image.
Niklas Lundberg emailed this morning to let me know he had updated his portfolio at Diftype. Incredible work, especially considering his age and the fact he is self-taught.
Diftype is the work of a 20 year-old self taught freelance graphic artist based in Umeå, Sweden. He has been working in print, motion and interactive since 2003. Diftype was launched in 2006 as a place to showcase his work and share his creative inspirations with the design community at large.
His work leans a little to the digital end of the dial, which I have been slowly drifting away from in my own work, regardless of the fact that I was almost totally enveloped in that wave from a brief moment. It’s not that I don’t like that kind of work, it’s just that I have found myself returning to my roots, so-to-speak. Despite those leanings, it is impossible not to appreciate the eye for detail in the Diftype’s work. I am sure if it appeared in printed form at high resolution, it would be quite a feast for the eyes.
