Dan Stiles


















The punchy, whimsical work of Portland-based designer, Dan Stiles. Based around the forced simplicity of screen printing techniques, he makes much from little - an impressively paradoxical quality. Elegant yet seemingly na├»ve; graphic, clean and to the point without losing its charm. Imagine these pieces writ large and on your living room wall - there's something innately soothing about their visual rhythm, the harmonics, the playful symmetry. I dig it. You want more? There's a great interview with him over at Grain Edit, where he talks about his creative process (amongst other interesting things).
