“My influences mostly come from observing my surroundings,” says London-based freelance designer Julien Simshuser, “especially the visual things. The ideas come from recombining everything I see into a remix of reality.”
The graphic, motion and interactive designer’s showreel represents a diverse and often experimental body of work. Simshuser’s distinctive visual language is the thread that knits his portfolio together: abstract iconography that feels cohesive thanks to the German-born creative’s grounding in graphic design and his respect for composition.
“The reason my work is diverse is because of a need to push the boundaries – to go beyond what I know and have already done,” he adds.
