Christoph Niemann - What Is A Line? (OUGD104)

Christoph Niemann is one of my favourite Designers. His graphic approach to illustration has always appealed to me as it combines hand drawn illustration with computer manipulation in order to convey a particular concept.

Niemann's tone of voice within his work is something I agree with very much. Particularly with the direction of my What is a Line project. In relation to my work based on Russia expressing Soviet tendencies towards the former Eastern Bloc and Soviet states, it is something I feel as being appropriate to include in my work due to the controversial nature of my designs. Russian's wouldn't take kindly to it so why not make it fun?!

Niemann displays a lot of images on his website that are self motivated in order to express his style to potential clients. Here are a few that appeal to me which work with my ideas:

I like the last one of these 4 especially. You have to be pretty brainy to tie a knot like that...

Conceptual Graphic Illustration is very much up my street!
