New York-based designer Braulio Amado has released volume three of Graphic Interviews for Graphic Artists in a flurry of pink and green. The publication asks graphic designers and illustrators to answer six questions without using words, prompting some inventive responses.
Conceived and designed by Braulio, there’s some great contributions from DR.ME, Elana Schlenker, Julian Glander, Daniel Zender, Tracy Ma, Wade Jeffree and Nejc Prah. Each creative has a spread in the 64-page Risograph printed publication and every response is housed in a square mimicking the layout of school exam papers. Some have used the space to create a six-panel comic, others six separate illustrations and designer Ben Tousley has simply used a repeated stamp motif in each of the boxes. These broad and diverse responses are testament to why GIFGA is in its third incarnation.
We’ve featured Braulio multiple times in the past for his impressive work for Bloomberg Businessweek and The New York Times Magazine but it’s great to see him step away from commercial work and spend time encouraging other designers and illustrators to create for fun.
GIFGA 3 was released yesterday (8 September) and can be bought through Draw Down Books.
