In my daily search for new design inspiration, I stumbled upon some of Sebastián Guerrini’s drawings and simply had to share them with you guys. I felt he managed to capture the essence of modern day society, human emotions and spiritual conflicts. His artworks speak volumes and despite the dreary and dismal appearance, they express human emotions quite vividly, with a touch of surrealism and the aesthetics of the ugly. First, we’re going to find out a little more about this gifted designer and then see some samples of his breathtaking work.
Sebastián Guerrini has an impressive educational background: he is a Designer in Visual Communication from Argentina, a graduate in Communication Technologies (Netherlands) and Doctor of Philosophy in Communication and Image Studies at the University of Kent (England). He has worked in the field of analysis and design of Institutional and Corporate Communication in over 20 countries. Among his most famous projects are ones for Amnesty International, UNICEF, UNESCO and the United Nations.
If you aren’t impressed by now, what do you say about the fact that he is the author of the graphical version of the Argentine National Emblem? Furthermore, he designed the brand image of the Museum of Natural Sciences of Argentina and the visual identity of the nation’s Presidency, Ministries and Secretaries of State. Inspiring, huh?
“I strive for my brands to leave a lasting imprint; for my images to speak and for their discourse to define concepts which identities can embrace. Images should speak from the depths of what individuals, companies, and organizations want. Their words should tell stories that are perfectly clear and easy to understand. These brands can take the form of a poster, a web site, or an ad, but they will always be themselves. My goal is to design brands that are committed to what they want to say. They are identities with feeling, color and desire to improve their present.” (Sebastián Guerrini)
This ends today’s showcase of design resources and inspiration, I honestly hope that you’ve enjoyed Sebastián Guerrini’s illustrations as much as I have. In fact, could you pick one as your favorite?
