We confess to being impressed by anyone disciplined enough to keep a daily project going for 15 months (and counting), never mind seeing God in the process. Since January 2012, a German graphic designer named Tilman has been going through the exercise of creating a single digital geometric composition per day—and hasn’t missed a day yet.
Why is he doing this, you ask? “I get a serious flow when I draw simple shapes, combine them and experiment until they start to sing.” And, presumably, until they don’t look precisely digital. To combat the soulless perfection of digital graphics, Tilman (digitally) creates the images on what appears to be real paper, creases and smudges and all, and even adds touches to replicate manual printing techniques. It’s a nicely ironic move, and, frankly, a needed one for a project that, in less skilled hands, may have ended up looking like an archive of corporate logos.
Tilman’s entire archive—yes, updated daily—can be viewed on his blog, Geometric Daily.
