Maximilian Mauracher Weaves Monochrome Magic from Creative Restriction There are three things that strike you when you take a look at the portfolio of Berlin-based graphic designer and art director Maximilian Mauracher: firstly, his beautiful work; secondly, “wow, this guy really loves monochrome”; and thirdly, that his personal logo is surely a nod to a certain clown called Ronald’s famous golden arches. The similarity is no accident, and it points towards Mauracher’s playful and wry sense of humor, one that imbues much of his portfolio when that sort of thing is appropriate. It’s baffling (and impressive) to see his work in light of the fact that he only graduated from the University of Applied Arts in Vienna in June this year, and on creating his new website after graduation, he found himself thinking about how other graphic designers or illustrators craft their own logos. “They create these random things from their initials which look nice, but aren’t really saying anything,” says Mauracher.

The Sound of Graphic Design: Amsterdam's Lyanne Tonk and her Synaesthesia Thinking When describing graphic design we often talk of “silence” when there’s plenty of white space, or we say that something has a “loud” aesthetic. We like to hear colors; we enjoy still graphics that seem to vibrate and pulsate with noise. For the Amsterdam-based graphic designer Lyanne Tonk, who currently balances working part-time at the “young and a bit rebellious” Netherlands publisher Das Mag with freelance projects, a sound or lack thereof not only charges a composition but can spark the process behind making one. For certain (relevant) projects, she begins with what she hears. The rest comes afterwards.
