There’s always a bit of humor in the work of Robert Rickhoff. What at first seems like normal, even mundane pictures of the world, turn out to be fun juxtapositions of everyday objects – objects he’s digitally moved to places highly impractical for actual use. Urinals hang suspended on toilet walls, only accessible by a climbing wall; suburban streets are built with high speed jumps; and a volleyball court is placed in the center of a divided highway.

The Germany based graphic designers work often involves issues of function and namely safety within society. This has the effect of making his work highly road, playground and public space centric. Many of his images playfully include traffic signs pointing to the obviously impractical manipulations. You can find more examples on his blog, robertrickhoff.blogspot.co.uk.
