You may not trust someone who tells you they’ve made prints out of vegetable colouring, but I suppose once you find out they were educated in visual communication at the Bauhaus you may be a little more open-minded. Not satisfied with the more traditional methods of graphic design, Friedemann Albert pushes the boat out to inflating and popping bin bags as typography or making inks and porcelain ornaments from vegetables.
In fact, looking at his portfolio, almost all of his projects are vegetable-based in some shape or form, but there’s nothing we love more than someone taking a strange idea and running with it — the fact his end-products are so beautiful is just a bonus!
