“Nothing beats to get to know a client over many years by doing projects based on building trust in each other,” says Norwegian designer and illustrator Magnus Voll Mathiassen (better known as MVM). Magnus’ portfolio is predominantly portrait based, working with block colours to highlight facial shadows and characteristics. He also experiments with mixed media, handmade and digital collage, always sticking firmly to finding grace in stripping subjects back to their bare minimum. Magnus founded Grandpeople studio in 2005 and has since created a solid, unique body of work that appeals across the board from publishing to sportswear brands among others.
