Quim Marin Background & History:
He is a Barcelona-based designer and art director Quim Marin has a strong visual sensibility and a prolific work-rate if scrolling through his site is anything to go by. There’s a load of impressive poster and other print design on there, with particularly effective use of some trendy tropes which can often feel stale in less talented hands.” -It’s nice that- “Quim Marin, a designer from Barcelona, Spain. His style is really simple, using shapes, colors, and typography these posters come to life with a really strong message “Quim marin’s posters are a graphic design nerd’s dream” Spanish graphic designer Quim Marin is serious about his work. Apart from his branding work and art direction, one of his specialties is making posters. He carefully examines present graphic design trends, and incorporates them into his pieces in an absolutely refined way” -The FACE- “There’s a load of impressive poster and other print design on there, with particularly effective use of some trendy tropes which can often feel stale in less talented hands” says It’s nice that on the portfolio of an amazing man”
“I find it hard to count the projects I have worked in throughout the last 20 years. Naming, art direction, graphic design, creation of advertising campaigns –I believe I have pulled all the strings. I must thank the music scene for its extreme sensitiveness to the passing of time and trends.
“In such a visually polluted environment I try to come up with fresh and memorable designs with a clear aim at essential beauty and equilibrium that, at the same time, will ensure communicative effectiveness.”
Why I choose him:
One of the reasons I think he should be featured in the new edition of the textbook is because of his influence on how he uses his graphic designs to speak about world issues and designs in a way that gets people wondering and thinking about the real-world issues just from one glance at his work. He keeps his designs simple and elegant, working with minimal design to keep his designs a fresh and effective way for people to view it. His designs are meant to be simple and take away from the problems of the world. He lives in a very populated part of the world which is another reason he designs the way he does he keeps it less populated and very to the point type of topics, and designs. Over all his work is very appealing to me.
