a few months ago, i had a collaborative project with one of my favorite designers, nick aka elevator-design. the project led to a friendship and continued mutual inspiration. nick can put a flip on retro textures and aesthetics to come up with something completely fresh and most likely convincing even to those whose visual taste is limited strictly to the latest design fads, whatever those might be. because of work like his that i am a firm believer in that graphic design is a form of art, even if art fundamentalists want to argue otherwise.
you can check his website for more eyecandies, and link up with him on myspace.
