David Mascha is a Vienna based artist designer, creating beautiful letterforms, colourful conceptual art, and gorgeous geometrics. His work has a precise and almost clinical level of finesse and detail, whilst maintaining an eccentric and fun edginess.

Vladimir Hadzic on spontaneity, creative process, and personal projects.

Vladimir Hadzic creates vibrant and invigorating illustrations, utilising a wealth of graphic detail, very fine lines, and striking colour combinations.

Magdalena Marchocka on nature, digital illustration, and being stuck inside.

 Madgalena Marchocka is a Polish illustrator, with a typographic focus and love for animation. Her illustrations have a beautiful, tender, handmade quality to them.
