A Thirst for Design

In collaboration with TBWA Chiat Day for PepsiCo, Greek designer Charis Tsevis created this series of illustrations. Tsevis is “in love with complexity,” and it shows. Cannot imagine the amount of time it takes to build these. Tsevis has a very analytical approach to design, which makes for some thoughtful and compelling work. Be sure to check out his TED talk too… good stuff.

Loosely reminiscent of work by Charis Tsevis (here and here). […]

  5. Abstract Color Portraits | BARBOUR DESIGN on April 23, 2013 at 10:37 am

    […] His use of bold colors and geometric shapes (not quite as orderly as the geometric work of Charis Tsevis), is the perfect combination to deem these masterpieces in their own right. Pautasso’s […]
