Lotta Nieminen

  Lotta’s work is equal parts design and illustration and both parts equally excellent. I posted this elegantly simple identity system that she designed for Maeven, but you should really go check out her full book here. You’re gonna be blown away.

  I know absolutely nothing about this rad russian illustrator other then she doesn’t have a site and she’s not on twitter. You can check out her work from her facebook page here. Really nice colors and simplified geometric forms!                              ...
