Olle Eksell

A Swedish graphic designer Olle Eksell. My new book just came in the post full of stuff, from book sleeves and posters to pattern design. Yet again pictures not doing justice, perhaps I should try and get my scanner working!
I like the contrast in Eksell's work between the black line and patterned areas and the edgeless block colour – not feeling the need to colour everything in. As I do not speak swedish I may perhaps miss some of the gags, though still pretty to look at and touch the contrasting papers, and smell its newness!


  1. Ohh Ami thanks for posting these, beautiful! Would you be willing to bring that book into the studio sometime so I can have a peek?

    1. Hi as I have barely any skills and I am just getting into Blogging I have only just seen this, of course I'll bring it in so you can take a look, I haven't had chance to admire every page yet cause of all this work :(
