Karan Singh: IBM US Open Sessions (detail)

Work / Illustration

Karan Singh produces super illustrations for US Open-inspired project

This top image by New York-based illustrator Karan Singh caught my eye on purely aesthetic grounds; it was only when I delved a little deeper that I discovered the interesting story behind the work. Karan was one of several artists commissioned by Ogilvy New York to work on the IBM US Open Sessions, whereby LCD Soundsystem’s James Murphy created a series of tracks based on data gathered at the tennis tournament.

Karan was one of those brought in to provide the visuals, letting his eye for pattern, colour and detail off the leash. The results look great, and do justice to what is an already innovative creative project.
