About the Book
21st Modern is a contemporary journey through illustration, graphics and art-direction. It takes you through the realms of 1950s and 60s 'Modern style' flat graphics, fashionable hand-drawn illustration, and some fresh and exciting art-direction.
Avant-Garte is a creative studio which brings together a powerful blend of graphic design, illustration, photography, digital image manipulation and strong art-direction. Attention to detail, energy, application, dedication, exclusivity, unorthodox design and a large hint of passion underpins all that we do. If it doesn't speak for itself then it isn't Avant-Garte! We create artwork for commercial application - bespoke, unique, powerful, seductive. We work long hours to our creative end; we'll draw or paint, use a camera or a mouse, vision or sound, so long as it is different, arresting, engaging. We want to appeal to emotion through lifestyle and fashionable imagery, we aim to inspire and we make it work. Luke Walwyn - Artistic Director
