We have an affinity for surface designs so we just had to share these costumed women series created by Indra Dugar. The artist was born in Jiagunj, West Bengal in 1918 and died in 1989 in Kolkata. He did not have any formal education in art, unlike his eminent artist father, Hirachand Dugar. His art techniques and practices was acquired from his father without going through any academic routine. This gave him a rare individuality that distinguished him from other artists. Besides his woman series he has also created landscapes both of which were usually created en plain air.

Since 2010 Mario De Meyer worked as a freelance graphic designer based in Ghent, Belgium. His strong focus is on typography but has also concentrated in abstract designs. He has worked with a variety of clients worldwide such as IBM, Fortune, Adobe and Wired to name a few. On the blog 8Faces he says this about his work:
“My love for lettering is something that grew over the years. During school typography lessons were always one of my favourites, but I never thought back then that it would become my main focus. Typography wasn’t so big back then. I think my love of lettering actually came from frustration. Belgium is a pretty complicated country and the fact that we have two languages (Dutch and French) doesn’t make it any easier. Certainly when you’re a designer, clients don’t want two designs but still require two languages.”
“This frustration was healthy in a way. As a reaction I started designing stuff for myself for fun, with my own philosophy and to challenge myself.”

We love the bright, striking colors of these illustrations by Lucas Wakamatsu. The Brazilian illustrator and graphic designer is based in Bauru, a small town five hours from Sao Paulo. It is there that he studied graphic design at UNESP college and where he works as a full-time freelancer. On Our Culture Magazine he says this about his style:
“My style is a modern mix of simple shapes and eye-catching colors, creating pleasant characters and compositions, through these elements I communicate feelings and concepts. My goal is to produce vibrant and rich imagery to brands, people and products.”
