Lilly Friedeberg makes the world the way she wants it – because in the end, our environment is what sets our imagination in motion. All we have to do is go through life with our eyes open. A revelation for Adobe Stock's latest new face Lilly Friedeberg in this respect were particularly the Simpsons and Super Mario: Trees don't always have to be green, and rivers don't necessarily have to be blue. Which is why Lilly's artworks whisk viewers away to her loud, colorful world. Her tip: Think up the color combination first from time to time and then the motif. That can turn a colorful summer dress at the flea market into a short visual trip to the cool soothing shade of a palm grove.
But the Düsseldorf-based graphic designer not only draws inspiration from everyday observations. The Internet and, in particular, image-focussed platforms such as Instagram are a great way to get inspired by other artists and network with them. “Get inspired by other disciplines, styles and artists! You'd be surprised where the next stroke of genius or the next collaboration can come from.” is Lilly's second piece of advice. Please stop by the Creative Connection blog for all further tips on working with loud colors and an insight into Lilly's impressive experiments with color.
