Admiring the minimalist art of freelance graphic designer and illustrator Levente Szabo. The Hungarian designer is know for his spartan approach to design using basic linear shapes and solid colors. On Talking with the Pros he says this about how his job as an illustrator influences his life:
“I like the term ‘design is a way of thinking’.”
“And I know it’s a cliché, but you can constantly learn from your surroundings: are you traveling with a bus? Look at the passengers – how does an ear look like from behind? Are you sitting in a loud pub? What are the people talking about based on their body language? Are you just walking the dog? Look up and enjoy the rarely seen details of the buildings! There are interesting details everywhere and the more you know, the more tools you’ll have when you sit down drawing.”
