Viva La Revolución Part II: Fernando Gaverd

Curator: David Grey

Tags: graphic design, Mexico
Fernando Gaverd is another amazing Mexican designer. He creates some of the sexiest work I know; curves and lines that dance at the intersection of human form and geometry. He has the sensibility of a classic typographer and the curiosity of a graffiti kid. His symbols are amazing. They look like Frank Lloyd Wright inspired alien hieroglyphics. And his photography is stunning when used in his own projects. 

I’m always impressed by his sensitivity to scale and rhythm and movement and inspired by his confident mark-making. I have a feeling the world will soon be seeing much more of Fernando's work.
