”Sometimes you see something so absolutely the opposite of your usual style that it stops you in your tracks and makes you smile. And perhaps even makes you question what you thought you liked.
I am a minimalist and a modernist, I like calm; I like grey. I like simplicity; I like the understated; I like quiet clean lines and white space. But then along came Kristjana S Williams”
“Kristjana S Williams creates magical landscapes, filled with impossible, exotic creatures by interweaving fragments of Victorian engravings with contemporary illustration and colouring. Icelandic born and a graduate of Central St Martin’s, Williams’ illustration work spans the worlds of fashion, homeware and prints and has gained widespread critical acclaim.

Latitude was given the opportunity to add some life to the QV Melbourne carpark by implementing a series of large scale environmental graphics. The design took inspiration from early modernist graphic design, and acts as both environmental graphics as well as wayfinding.
Each typographic piece was individually hand painted on site, overlaying the painted forms producing a multiplied effect onto the existing brickwork. The location of each word was carefully considered to ensure high visibility, with the design also providing a welcomed use of colour and brightness to the underground levels.
