I discovered Fernando Volken Togni through the Creative Tourist website, which featured a Manchester cultural calendar with his work on. A Brazilian illustrator, Fernando creates amazing images that are full of bold, graphic shapes. His use of line is very simple but so effective, he can create beautifully intricate patterns. I love the folk edge to his work and his colour palettes are always perfect.
He's also part of a group of artists who Grove have teamed up with to design bamboo laser-engraved iphone and ipad cases. Matt Lyon, Kate McLelland and Jonny Wan have also been involved in the project and each artist has created their own case design and the results are stunning. There so expensive which is probably a good thing because I don't think I'd be able to decide which one to get!
