While searching for some design inspiration online, I stumbled upon funny-quirky, and awesome work by Christoph Niemann. I confess that I had no clue to who the man is or what he does, but I instantly took a liking to his ways of working the ink pens.
And, just in the case that you too do not know much about him, Christoph Niemann is an awesome illustrator, graphic designer, and an author. He has been inking for the New York Times blog Abstract Sunday (A.K.A Abstract City), and has been inducted into the Art Directors Club Hall of Fame.
Here’s another drop of juicy-ness (that I wasn’t aware of before I read up on, and stalked Niemann on the Internet): Netflix has a self-produced docu-series called Abstract: The Art of Design, and Niemann was profiled for the first season of the series. If you haven’t watched it yet, you really should be doing that instead.

In the case you haven’t been exposed to his quirky works, then this post is meant as just that; a small introduction to the works of Christoph Niemann.
This post also marks the start of yet another series, one where a designer and / or illustrator, someone whom I look up to or in this case stumble on, and look up to, is chosen to be introduced here on this blog.
Here are some of Niemann’s quirky designs, and illustrations:
