It’s almost a given that an ex-HORT intern’s going to have an accomplished portfolio, and illustrator and graphic designer Benedikt Luft is no exception. It’s Nice That art director Ali Hanson alerted us to the German creative’s site with the simple, immortal endorsement “mad shit,” and he’s not wrong. It’s hard to pin down exactly what Benedikt’s style is as his portfolio is hugely varied, ranging from straight-up editorial commissions for the likes of Zeit Campus and Converse to surreal comics to some gorgeous sleeve imagery for the Secret 7” records project. So if you want abstract monochromes, a slick solution for an editorial spread or simply a dude who can anthropomorphise a stone with aplomb, looks like Benedikt could be your man.
