PENSON's Pick | 2019 Review in ImagesBy Sarah Bean
A lot of our ‘work’ at PENSON gets done through everyday life - reading books, flicking through magazines, visiting exhibitions and trade shows, going to gigs, pinteresting – we draw inspiration from all parts of life.
To kick off 2020 the design team have taken a look back at the concept images that topped their year in 2019.
More abstract than anything else, these images are the basis of our inspirations and aspirations for the projects we're working on. The ideas they prompt thread into the design language of the projects themselves and become a focal point.
I was struck by how impressive these formations are. They're beautifully made, textured and with amazingly balanced colours. The artist does incredible stuff.
I like the juxtaposition…the adage of old vs. new, traditional art/interior vs. more contemporary/vibrant…there’s something timeless but also very modern at the same time about this image. The viewer has no idea what it could be.
This is truly immersive. I would love this to be in any space I design because the possibilities of artful projections are endless.
I just want to explore the spaces in these images - they look so fun and they invite you in. Who doesn't want to be a future artist? I'm imagining an alternative version of reality once you step inside...
This was from the first project book I worked on after starting at PENSON, and I felt it completely encapsulated the spirit of PENSON – fun, a bit crazy, and totally different. Anyone want to join me in jumping on this mass of cushion-y yellow?
