Stockholm based illustrator Kilian Eng updated his Behance-folio once again with more magnificent 70′s/80′s retro-sci-fi-inspired imagery that employs the use of simple line art, imaginative color and even more imaginative scenery. Count me as a fan.

Swedish studio Kurppa Hosk is “an interdisciplinary brand and design consultancy creating attraction.” How great is that? ‘Creating attraction.’ That is a statement that needs to be capitalized on folks. Kurppa has some strong color use of color applied through minimal graphics within their portfolio. It’s classic international typographic style with a pop sentiment.

Erik Månsson or Erik M▲nsson as he calls himself at his Flickrfolio is from Norrköping, Sweden where he is making some very interesting collages that make you question his interpretation of the source material and how he magically arrived at the strange final output of his final work.

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.

Swedish by origin but London based by choice illustrator Martin Nicolausson has a unique style that is somehow soft and gritty all at the same time. Although the works looks as though it may have been digitally finished there is still something tangible, almost graphite-pencil like about the work. It’s a style that has gotten him a lot of attention on creative blogs as of late. Regardless of the illustration attention, Nicolausson view himself first and foremost as a graphic designer and I think you can see that best not through his illustration work but his use of typography.

More please.

Stockholm based photographer Jenni Porkka has only been shooting professionally for 2 years but has already amassed an a long client roster including Zink, Kurv, Spex, Hint, Lush, Idoll, Glitterati, Glamcult, SVA, Leve and Fan The Fire just to list a few. It’s easy to see why with her eye for glamor and composition.

Swedish design and advertising agency Ritator has, as I am sure you can see from above, some very strange and intriguing work in their portfolio. They definitely take a unique approach to each project and it shows clear as day through the thumbnails on their homepage.

Lundgren Lindqvist is a bureau sort of. They live, breath, work, talk and love design. That is probably good considering their chosen occupation. They are based out of Gothenburg, Sweden. They believe ‘good design is good business’ and I think that is a pretty damn clever statement right there.
