Pictoplasma - The Character Compendium presents 900 works by 200 international designers and artists

‘Can you imagine what Microsoft would have came up with instead of the nerve-wrecking paper-clip if they would have a Pictoplasma book at hand?’ asks My Nuts are Your Nuts in the press release for the newest compendium on character design and illustration.

Surely, the volume is filled to the brim with lots of colourful inspirations. Following the bestselling 'Pictoplasma – The Character Encyclopaedia' in 2006, Pictoplasma founders Peter Thaler and Lars Denicke have now edited a new collection of works by international greats and fresh talents in character design.

Ranging from illustration to visual design, art and urban arts – the volume is a very handy source of inspiration for all sorts of creative endeavour. Featuring over 900 works by almost 200 international designers and artists, the Character Compendium offers a comprehensive overview of figurative design.

The list of artists includes: Raymond Lemstra, Julia Pott, FriendsWithYou, Florentijn Hofman, Amanda Visell, Brock Davis, Jordan Metcalf, Phunk Studio, Noferin, Nathan Jurevicius, McBess, Koralie and many more. And by the way – if you were one of the unfortunate souls that missed the Pictoplasma Festival in Berlin a few weeks ago – Peter Thaler and Lars Denick present their favourite snapshot souvenirs here on GoSee.
