I love simple shapes in design. I tend to use circles a lot – if you couldn’t already tell in the mixtape artwork I do. So I am really enjoying this geometry influenced tumblr from Germain designer Tilman. Everyday he comes out with a new “geometric minimal composition” and posts it on his tumblr Geometry Daily.
Here are two good questions explaining his thought process behind the tumblr:
I love geometry. Lines, curves, rectangles, circles, triangles are a simplification of our real world but also their building blocks. Geometry, like physics or mathematics, defines how our world is constructed. I find endless beauty in this construction. I see god in there.
These days our lives are full of noise and complex dependencies. Many strive for simplicity. Me too. I want to concentrate on the relevant things. That is why I like to concentrate on one idea and execute it straight-forward. No fuss. Hopefully that makes it more powerful. Also for me as a creative it is interesting to see how much effort I have to put into the artworks to make something unique but also as simple as possible. It is not a rectriction, it sparks my creativity.
