The textures and colour palettes of illustrator and designer Stephanie Scholz’s work are redolent of early 20th Century poster designs, with rich tones but a quiet stillness that captures moments in time.
Taking modernist and often architectural starting points, Stephanie’s work features sports imagery but with notable absences of people: we see an empty umpire’s chair, lone ping pong table and diving boards standing tall, but without their divers.
Elsewhere in her portfolio are some lovely Matisse-esque groups of brightly coloured female forms, their dances distilled into a powerful still image. Stephanie, who is now based in Berlin, has seen her work commissioned by clients including Nils Frahm, Efterklang, Wikimedia and Universal Music.
