This week marks the halfway point of the Coroflot Genius Gallery and we've got a couple of exciting announcements: first of all, we're pleased to present Laura Anderson of Minneapolis, MN, with our third book prize. Laura's packaging and identity design is expressive, thoughtful and elegantly executed—not to mention the excellent photography. Congratulations on the win, Laura!
Laura Anderson (Minneapolis, MN) - The breadth and depth of Laura's portfolio belie the fact that she completed her B.S. in Graphic Design last May. Her graphic design work is invariably on point, and we're sure her clients are as thrilled with her work as we are. Moreover, we think her photography skills will go a long way towards producing an outstanding book.
Like previous winners Jasmin Darnell and Andrew Walsh, Laura has earned a $200 credit towards a book at Blurb.com—an enviable prize if we say so ourselves—and it seems that three weeks has been more than enough time for our last winner, Andrew, to take advantage of his well-deserved certificate. His book Gradient Species is available for preview and purchase on Blurb. Here are a few of the spreads featuring new work:
And lest we forget the essence of the genius gallery, we're also very happy with the seven other creative folks whose portfolios really stood out among this week's excellent submissions. Remember, you can submit up to once a week and it's as quick and painless as it gets, so head over to the Genius Gallery and submit today! (A bit of advice to the repeat entrants: updating not only your sets and images but also your info can go a long way towards getting featured...)
Wagner Campelo (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) - Wagner's floral patterns and textile designs equally capture the spirit of his culture and his eye for detail.
Olga Kalugina (Moscow, Russia) - Olga's renderings are super neat in both senses of the word.
Herman Francisco Delos Santos (San Francisco, CA) - Herman takes automobile design to the next level with his abstracted graphics
Gustavo Brigante (Buenos Aires, Argentina) - Gustavo blends comics, collage and expert draftsmanship in his illustration and graphic design work.
Jonathan Lo (Brooklyn, NY) - Jonathan's print work and style guides really capture the essence of clear design.
Michael Secrist (Baltimore, MD) - Michael is equally good at rendering interiors and exteriors with great detail and just the right lighting.
Thierry Fischer (Lille, France) - Thierry's industrial design work is superb in itself, but his sense of presentation is truly, well, genius.
