I’ve had a hard time finding one specific Graphic performer/studio of my own liking. I’ve used google, links provided by teacher and grafill.no to search for an artist that I would prefer.
There were tons to choose from, and several caught my eye.
However, after a week-long search, I finally found someone up my own alley.
The designer studio, Signs of the Times DA/Smaapigerne, was founded in 1999 by Kaja Ødegård and Sissel Ringstad.
Both women work with illustration, and graphic design. In fact, they both have a bachelor’s degree in illustration from the same college in England.
Kaja and Sissel works with a broad variety of techniques and expressions.
The reason I chose Signs of the Times/Smaapigerne, is because I simply love their illustrations.
All though all illustrations seem very different from each other, you can still see that they have their own “childish” style.
They also use a well-balanced colour scheme, with a special mix between mellow and sharp colours.
