Heart of Darkness by Nick Liefhebber

The Hortus was founded as a medicinal garden by the mayor of Amsterdam to save the town from a new plague epidemic. It has inspired and helped many people since.This series of risograph prints explores different views and elements found in the botanical garden, both in form and subject. These are printed at Extrapool in exclusive colours (lavender, gold, salmon, warm red and glaucous) including an A2 sized print.

Every story is unique, and so is every work, ranging from animations and web experiments to awesome print design. As a graphic designer, I am focussing on identities and multi media campaigns.
