Transcendence by Graphic Designer/Illustrator Arno Kiss is one of his personal project that aims to test his skills. Arno wanted to test to see how much he could achieve in a set time frame with limited colours. The design was initially inspired by the movie Interstellar.
“Transcendence” is currently only a fancy jpeg but I plan on releasing it as a limited edition screenprint in the near future. This basically started as a personal project/test to see how much I could achieve in a set timeframe with limited colours. I like to challenge myself like this from time to time to learn new techniques and get a breather from the client work.
I came up with the design and composition while watching Interstellar (great movie), but I was toying with an idea like this long before that. After the movie had finished I quickly scribbled it in my notebook so I wouldn’t forget it. First chance I got in between client work I just threw myself into this project. It’s hard to pinpoint what exactly inspired me to create this project. I would say I wanted to find a way to visualize the possibility of multiple dimensions in a very stylistic way.
I’ll just answer this with some of the best advice I ever got: “It always gets worse, before it gets better. Just make sure to keep going.”
