Meet Kevin Harris, one of the coolest designers in town!

Meet Kevin Harris, one of the coolest designers in town! | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

By all accounts Kevin Harris is an extraordinary badass, working only for the very coolest record labels and publications, with collaborators like Mario Hugo and Tim Lahan in tow. Part designer, part illustrator, with art direction and animation skills aplenty, he’s carving out a niche for himself producing effortlessly awesome work that references 1990s web art, stoner comics, tie-dye fabrics and pulp pornography with serious conceptual flair. He does his OWN comics too which obviously makes him OK by us. Look out for this one, he’s going to be huge!

Recently Rejected

Recently Rejected | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Artist and art director Mario Hugo, who founded the agency Hugo & Marie, knew that he wasn’t the only designer sitting on troves of unseen work. Hoping to give unfinished work a proper burial, he sent out a call to designers and illustrators and gathered projects that had been rejected or never published. Recently Rejected, Hugo’s newly launched website, shines a spotlight on this underappreciated material—and much of it is beautiful. From rejected covers for Wired magazine to unseen T-shirt graphics to project sketches for Coldplay, the images on the site are comforting reminders that rejection and failure are inevitable parts of the creative process. This can be easy to forget when designers usually only share polished final products.
