Evgeny Kiselev


Saint-Petersburg based Russian illustrator Evgeny Kiselev never stops and draws everywhere he goes.
No matter that a tube station or snorkelling in Asia, he always finds inspiration from enjoying the life.
He started freelance work few years ago after being squeezed in local creative agencies where he got professional experience. The lack of academic background hadn’t changed the way he creates and even improved the will to tie his life with graphics and visualisation. So what you think makes Evgeny’s artworks outstanding? I do believe he found a unique way of creativity flow and concentrates on researching new ways of inspiration. His works are recognisable and rarely use the previous idea generating new diversities. Since last year he started to materialise illustrations on cushions and umbrellas what makes them unique and colourful.
Since I’m watching for his artistic career he has collaborated with European media like ROJO, Computer Arts, Miller, IDN, Grafik Magazine and of course Designcollector participating in our six anniversary.

Fashion Vs. Architecture: Construct / Deconstruct

The above spreads are from a big feature in PILOT issue 2. It was printed on insert matte stock and printed in a two-colour monotone. It looks much better in the flesh actually, but these lo-res give you a quick feel for the feature, as does the text below…

Recent advances in technology have given architects the tools to create fluid buildings and fashion designers the ability to make garments architectonic. The language of each discipline is increasingly interchangeable as architects incorporate pleating, folding, and weaving into their structural designs while fashion designers use architectural inspiration to express volume and structure. Construct / Deconstruct explores the relationship between fashion and architecture highlighting common ground and suggesting potential new ideas for the future development of both disciplines.

Poster/Listings for UK club ‘Wire’. This project is currently a work in progress. The club hosts a number of nights encompassing a range of music and tastes, so we approached this project with an open mind. A late-night stream-of-conciousness ensued.

Hello and let me introduce you the brand new blog on Fashion Communication recently started on Designcollector Network and run by DJ and fashion editor Olga Bohan!
Briefly, blog is about the communications between people and fashion brands. From runway shows to advertising campaigns, from shops windows to their interiors, from legend make up to stars collaborations. You can call it boring “marketing communication” and will be right. But in case of fashion industry nothing can be boring.
DJ and fashion editor Olga Bohan started this blog to collect and analyse fashion marketing tricks that different brands use to promote their goods. She did a splendid warm up mix reflecting the latest trends of catwalk music.

Continuing our ongoing relationship with SCI+TEC Digital Audio & Human we have just finished the latest graphic for Nic Fanciulli and Andy Chatterley release on the label. The duo originally were releasing it as SKYLARK (hence the bird reference in the illo) but that was dropped last minute, shame because we did a really nice logo for it!

kdu_silentnoize

A piece completed for a recent exhibition held in East London, United Kingdom.

The Noise of Art exhibition showcased works by a host of London based artists and creatives, each using a 12 inch vinyl record as their canvas.

Silent Noize is an organic typographic piece, which, after discovering rotring pens don’t take well to metallic based inks, was painted onto the vinyl base – the record itself being ‘Deaf Stereo’.

Have you ever asked yourself what you know about the sixth part of Earth – Russia? I bet you can shout out the set of keywords no matter what they are. Today I’m going to reveal quite obscure part of the creative Russia, the hidden force of graphics and arts – Russian illustrators. They draw at night, drink out tons of imported coffee, smoke cigarettes and never get drunk because they are smart, creative and very talented persons. I start the first Episode with the the most talented illustrator and will continue to reveal each of them in next posts.
