Illustration and typography are two completely different types of design, just as digital painting and photo manipulation are two very different styles of graphic design. In today’s design news you will see how each can be mixed together effectively.. Oh, and we also have some cool lego fridges.
This news item is a showcase of Spanish illustrator and typographer Alex Trochut. Its not very often that you can view a portfolio combining both design types so successfully.
These energy saving stackable Lego-brick-alike fridges were designed by Stefan Buchberger, a student at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna. They are colorful, interchangeable into many configurations. With each fridge brick being smaller than a normal fridge, it takes less energy to cool and less cold air escapes each time you open the door. They look cool as well don’t they?
This is a detailed tutorial from PSDtuts, where you will learn how to combine digital painting and photo manipulation. The process of combining digital painting and photo manipulation can be difficult, but it is a great mix. The final result is awesome.
