Daniel Stolle‘s illustrations are conceptual images that seem inherently influenced by his training in industrial design. They have a clean, cold, precise aesthetic, are spare, his minimal compositions made up of hard digital forms and sparse colours.
His cool style perfectly serves his obvious intelligence as his illustrations really delve beyond the surface of the subject matter. This is thoughtful, heartfelt work by a man who obviously makes deep connections to his subject at hand whether it be depression, economics or literature.
Stolle, originally from Germany, but now living in Finland, has made a good name for himself since stepping into the illustration world in 2007 having done work for the likes of The New York Times, The New Yorker, Washington Post, DIE ZEIT, Neue Zürcher Zeitung, The Times, Scientific American as well as contributing drawings for book covers, stamps and animated films.
