Based in Vienna, Atelier Olschinsky is a small creative studio founded in 2002 by Peter Olschinsky and Verena Weiss. They operate in a wide variety of fields including graphic design, illustration, photography and art direction.
It was their recent illustration series ‘Legendary Cities’ that caught my attention, as they created a set of 7 prints based on Atlantis, Babylon, El Dorado, Gotham, Megapolis, Metropolis and Troy. The prints look like they are based on aerial shots of these cities with an incredible attention to detail. Upon first glance they look very familiar but its only after taking a closer look that you can really appreciate the thought and skill that went into creating them.
Browsing through the studios site you can see that architecture plays a big role in their illustration and design as you can see in the creation of the fonts “Construct’ and ‘Outer Space’. As a designer its always such a great source of inspiration when you come across work like this as it feeds your own hunger for creation and pushes the boundaries of your own work and style.
