Mark Brooks

I’m really digging the deceptively minimal work of Mark Brooks. The illustrations are sparse and the images full of contrast, and I feel that the concept quality is top notch. For example, whatever is happening with the exploding — or shattering — giraffe below is amazing.

Mark’s portfolio is bold; I love that many of the pieces require a second look. In addition to the variety of pieces designed for Santamonica, the LA based apparel company, Mark also has a comprehensive logo portfolio. Like his print work, they are bold, crisp and smart (and largely typographical).

Check out his Behance portfolio as well.

Very interesting image – love the color!

I think SantaMonica LegitimateWear is actually based in Barcelona, Spain, despite the name.

I agree, the shattering/exploding giraffe is amazing.

Wow. Just amazing – the Stormtrooper one is dazzling!

Inspiring stuff!

The image of the giraffe suggests to me that it is evaporating.

Amazing stuff. Minimal, clean and very bold.
