Graphic designer Ward Heirwegh and a parquet floor – a visual match made in heaven

Posted by Liv Siddall,

Even if you’re not into incredibly innovative publications and eye-popping design, at least Ward is teaching you one thing – photographing things on a parquet floor is a one way ticket to visual paradise. A little bit on the elusive side, all we can really dig out from Ward’s website – which, by the way, is like an online version of a freshly tidied room – is that he has made some exceptionally original graphic design work for some impressive up and coming names. What really sets Ward aside from other designers is perhaps his ability to really go to town on making a simple poster or booklet as fun as possible, allowing ultimate audience interaction. For the best examples of this, have a look at his adjustable poster layouts for The Moving Picture Show and the gradually diminishing Batard theatre festival poster.
