Tilman is an interaction and graphic designer living and working in and near Nuremberg, Germany but you might know him better as GeometryDaily, the everyday source for geometric goodness and inspiration for graphic designers and design enthusiasts. He’s halfway through his second year posting minimalist shapes, and we still can’t seem to get enough.
On his love for lines and shapes:
Lines, curves, rectangles, circles, triangles are a simplification of our real world but also their building blocks. Geometry, like physics or mathematics, defines how our world is constructed. I find endless beauty in this construction…These days our lives are full of noise and complex dependencies. Many strive for simplicity. Me too. I want to concentrate on the relevant things. That is why I like to concentrate on one idea and execute it straight-forward. No fuss. Hopefully that makes it more powerful. Also for me as a creative it is interesting to see how much effort I have to put into the artworks to make something unique but also as simple as possible. It is not a restriction, it sparks my creativity.
Well, wouldn’t you know that I was over the moon when I found out that he offers his daily designs as prints through Society6? Yes! Here are some of our faves:
In an ongoing effort to support independent artists from around the world, Design Milk is proud to partner with Society6 to offer The Design Milk Dairy, a special collection of Society6 artists’ work curated by Design Milk and our readers. Proceeds from the The Design Milk Dairy help us bring Design Milk to you every day.
