Serial Cut Imagemakers

Serial Cut Imagemakers

Another studio that will literally blow you away is Serial Cut. This Madrid based studio was established in 1999 by Sergio del Puerto, working on a wide variety of worldwide projects, but focussing mainly on Art Direction.
There are so many awesome visions here to behold, I'll just send you to the folio page and let you decide!

Perplex City

Serial Cut: Perplex City

Another from Serial Cut is this wonderful construction of typography ... is it the same font? No? Yes? Hmmmmm. Playful use of black and white! This was part of a project for a card of a board game called Perplex City, where designers were invited to participate in the design with a concrete theme. The name of this was "Portmanteau", which means the word that results from blending two existing words into a new one.

Type as City Scape

Yulia Brodskaya: Type as City Scape

Yulia Brodskaya builds this type into a city scape ... Yulia was born in Russia (Moscow) with interests in diverse creative practices ranging from Textile Painting, Origami and Collage to more traditional Fine Art practices.
