Showturation #003 – 1910 Design & Communication
This post is part of our new regular series of posts showing the most incredible artists around the world selected by some of the youandsaturation’s writers and users – we call it Showturation.
First I want to thank Jonas and Stellan for taking the time out of his busy schedule to do an interview for youandsaturation. The first time I saw their work I love the simplicity, typography, colors. At the end of the interview you can find some pictures of the projects developed by these two designers. Hope you enjoy! Leave us your opinion via the comments below.
1. Hi “1910 Design & Communication”, we’re delighted to continue our interview series with you. Could you firstly introduce yourself to our readers and how you fit into the world of design?
1910 Design & Communication is a two-man design studio operating from Sweden. Both of us have a background in art and design for games, and around half of our clients come from that sector. Our approach and style is very much based on functionalism, as can be seen in both our identity, web, and UI-related projects.
2. What’s still the most important thing about design, and working with designers?
Design makes brands trustworthy, products usable, information understandable and communication efficient. Where design used to be considered a luxury, it’s today becoming more of an absolute necessity, and failing to acknowledge this will leave you far behind in truly connecting with your users and customers.
3. The best designers are the one’s who find good clients. Discuss.
Most of our clients approach us though mutual connections, or recommendations from previous clients. We put great pride in only accepting work where we truly feel that our beliefs could contribute in a way that would benefit the outcome. Having that mindset will produce better results, and in the long run, be better both for ourselves and our clients.
4. Which social networks do you use the most and where can our readers find you online?
We’re currently on Facebook (facebook.com/weare1910), Twitter (twitter.com/weare1910), Tumblr (weare1910.tumblr.com), and Behance (behance.net/weare1910), using them for somewhat different things. Facebook is mostly for announcing updates, Twitter is for everyday reflections, Tumblr is a feed of what inspires us, and Behance is basically a mirror of all the projects on our website.
5. Finally, what are you working on at the moment and what aspirations and plans have you set yourself for the future?
At the moment we are working on two different identity design projects, branding and art direction for an iOS-game, and a few self initiated web-projects. In 2013 we aim to continue to grow our client base and web-presence, and of course to develop our general design and business knowledge as much as possible while hopefully enjoying every minute of it.
