Modernist shapes and female forms in Stephanie Scholz’s illustration

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.
