    Magnus Voll Mathiassen (MVM): Granimator (detail), 2011

Great new site/work from graphic designer Magnus Voll Mathiassen aka MVM

Posted by Catherine Gaffney,

Magnus Voll Mathiassen, having co-founded the design studio Grandpeople in 2005, left to set up his own independent practice, MVM, in 2009 and in the years since we published this news on our website, the Norwegian graphic designer and illustrator has been producing all sorts of fascinating work. He has just launched his new website with a host of great new projects including his recent Granimator app that allows you to create custom wallpapers for your iPad, producing vistas that are both engaging and abstracted. Indeed, much of his work emphasises abstraction, to varying degrees; I particularly like the variously arranged striped scarves on the Fra Lippo Lippi packaging, and take a look at his Objectified series, in which he employs an occasionally Mondrian-esque style to make abstractions of everyday objects; think of it as a quiz, and try to identify every single one!
