I’ve notice an interesting trend recently of combining 3D models and photography to create original artworks for print.
Madrid-based Irma Gruenholz creates models that are then photographed and Photoshopped into magical and eye-catching illustrations (see above).
The Wellcome Collection in London is a gallery space that looks at the relationship between health and culture. For their latest exhibition is called Bedlam, which explores mental health, the graphic design team commissioned a new typeface. For the cover of the catalogue, they then built the letters in spray-painted MDF and photographed them in a studio.
In an interview with It’s Nice That, Wellcome graphic designer Lindsay Pentelow said: “We wanted the letters to have as much depth as possible, so we had flexibility in playing with the light and shadows when we shot it.”
