Hop on the Designbuss with Erik Olovsson

Creative inspiration

Erik Olovsson, who recently completed his Master's Degree in Graphic Design - Storytelling at Konstfack, noted how easy it is "to be sitting in the office and surf design blogs instead of finding inspiration from reality... It's rare that a designer gets a deeper insight into the client's business."
      With that in mind he bought an old motorhome, cleaned it up, gave it a bright new graphic paint job and hit the road seeking face-to-face interactions with small business across the country.

Edwin Tofslie's Apple Evolution Poster 2011

Creative inspiration

Sooner or later someone asks where did it all start ... well, Digital graphics, desktop publishing and digital art did not originate with Apple, but Apple sure did bring it front and center to the population.
