Enthusiastically picking your favourite images out of a selection to show people shouldn’t be a chore — in fact it’s probably in the top 100 nicest things to do, ever. When you get portfolio of work like Alt Studio’s, where it is literally a scrolling journey to the centre of the earth through a tunnel of some of the best graphic design you’ve seen for a long time, things can actually get tough.
In a huge range of projects, this Brussels-based studio co-founded by Emmanuel Leroy and Olivier Mary, is like an unstoppable machine of creativity, pumping out glorious publications that will make your eyes water. How did we not know about them before? I have no idea, but they’re officially in favourites territory now.
