It’s been a little while since my last post (work and personal life has been incredibly hectic), but following nicely from the Arabic Animals we have another animal-based graphic series.
The techniques used by graphic design studio DFT gives an almost overly simplistic representation, yet they manage to convey such lot of detail entwined within each.
Taking the time to “remove what’s not substantive” they are left with a single stroke that captures the animal.
The illustrations all your eye to naturally fill in gaps or interpolate the missing information with what it thinks should be there, completing the picture and adding depth.
A lack of shading on the illustration of the two elephants doesn’t prevent you from seeing that the baby elephant is in the foreground of the adult elephant.
The flowing lines naturally lend themselves to alluring to the idea of movement and fluidity.
