In a recent interview with knstrct.com Gregory Maher asked designer and illustrator Magnus Voll Mathiassen to describe his design aesthetic and he answered. “Probably colorful and bold, and at times minimal. Fun and serious, dark and light.” And then added, “Non-nordic”.
Mathiassen, who lives and works in Norway, straddles the border between art and commercial design. And, to me, that’s why it works so well.
