  1. some really fantastic work here. i’ve seen some of her pieces floating around image library sites such as FFFFOUND etc., but until someone posts a profile, you rarely associate the work with the designer. so thanks!

  2. Great post. I love this designers work.
    BTW, ffffound has gone downhill big time.
    Kind of a shame; I kind of don’t care, though.

  3. You might want to note that the actual quality of this piece does not lie the least in its composition etc. If you happen know the cultural context you will instantly recognise the design as a very obvious 1:1 citation (a slightly ironic one, that is): have a look at http://merve.de/. Merve Verlag have been THE poster child publisher of post-structuralist philosophy (Deleuze/Guattari, Baudrillard, …) and the likes in Germany. Their nice-price books and idiosyncratic design are well-known to practically every person that once stepped into a suitable humanities seminar during the last three decades. There’s nothing that screams ‘intellectual!’ as clearly as a Merve book cover 😉
