Siggi Eggertsson (born 1984) is a Berlin-based Icelandic graphic designer. At a time when the handmade aesthetic is going from strength to strength, Eggertsson’s work is entirely different. No sketches, doodles or brush strokes. No cutouts or found objects. His style takes advantage of pattern rules, vector shapes, lines and plenty of flat colour. It’s a bit like pixel art, softened with a nice analogue twist.

Aerial Views of American Sprawl

By Christoph Gielen

Christoph Gielen’s aerial views offer a look at America’s most aberrant and unusual sprawl forms in ways we usually don’t get to see them: from far above the ground—a vantage point that reveals both the intricate geometry as well as the idiosyncratic allure of these developments.
