LOS ANGELES 2D DESIGN CONTESTANTS

BIJAN BERAHIMI

My name is Bijan Berahimi, I am ninteen years old and I am a Graphic Design student in Southern California. I like films, MINI Coopers, Macs, music and politics. I also enjoy typography, illustration and print.I like to combine modern and hand made, busy and minimal, clean but also friendly design. At this point in my life I find myself drawn to all design, whether it be extremely minimalistic or completely hand-drawn.

BJORKY

Bjorky tells visual stories from the wonderful city of Los Angeles. He used to be a designer, but realized the world is already filled with too many logos. Striving to create an emotional response to everyday life, Bjorky searches for anomalies in seemingly ordinary circumstances. His artwork is fueled by humor, exposé and truth.

CHRIS HEMINGWAY

From Chicago, living in LA, and yearning for New York. Right now I'm working in entertainment advertising and designing for Hans and Fras t-shirts. I'd say my design aesthetic is all over the place, from the more hand done indie stuff to hyper real photo manipulation to that super color 80s stuff that's so hot right now. I see design as entertainment and, like a good movie, a well designed piece should make people smile or think or inspire them to action. All I want to do is make the world a little easier on the eyes.
