Tilman Zitzmann Daily Geometry 6

For just over a year now Tilman Zitzmann has been daily exploring two of his design fascinations: geometry and minimalism. Each day on his tumblr blog he posts a deceptively simple geometric form in his tasty retro style. Most examples look like they could have been lifted from your parent’s 50s or 60s textbooks, the ones that featured beautiful geometric instructions and infographics on the world before the term was even coined. For anyone design related, this is inspiration gold.

Zitzmann recently published a blog post on last years massive success, a project that started merely as a hobby. He tracks the explosion in attention paid to his excellent work, as well as mentions tributes from award winning animations to fans sporting tattoos. Besides all the love for his work, what keeps Zitzmann making these graphics? He explains:

“I love it. I get a serious flow when I draw simple shapes, combine them and experiment until they start to “sing”. I’m a designer with all my heart. It’s an experiment. A journey into a world of possibilities.”
