Basically, this needs to be BLING. It needs to look like a piece of solid gold kitsch from the 80s that wouldn’t look out of place in Idi Amin’s palace in The Last King of Scotland. Something that if you told someone you’d loot it from a Czar in Iraq during the invasion.
Looking professional and discrete and British is not the order of today. Today the world belongs to oil-rich sheikhs who like to know they’re rich, and like to build enormous pointy structures which make the Tower of Babel look like a tiny sand castle made by a baby pygmy.
If you think it looks ridiculously over the top, that’s a good thing. If you then add even more stuff onto it until it collapses under the weight of its own awesomeness like a big, diamond-studded bubble…well that’s kind of where we’re going with this one.
“Fans of pixel art, LEGO and letterpress, we couldn’t stand to see them exist separately any longer. After many Saturday morning experiments using a monospace grid and Vandercook press, a series of prints were produced for the College of Design’s October student gallery showing. We’ve grown since then.”

Growing up in Colorado has really enhanced my admiration for nature. The most beautiful images my eyes have ever seen have been events or locations in nature. This is what inspires most of my work.
