Bold, surreal commercial illustration from Madrid creative Velckro

Posted by James Cartwright,

Madrid-based graphic designer, art director and illustrator Velckro makes seriously surreal vector imagery for big-name brands like Red Bull, Heineken, Nike and Microsoft. Given such regular commissioning from industry giants it’s perhaps surprising that Velckro’s imagery is as strange as it is – kind of a cross between M.C. Escher and Milton Glaser but with a modern twist – but if the guys with deep pockets are prepared to support this kind of work then that’s definitely okay by us.
