This selection of marker art in Designer Spotlight, (as in brand logos of various felt-tips, pens etc), by Serge Lowrider, really caught my eye.
Something I love about the pure simplicity, and the natural imperfections inherent in ‘doodling’ with a marker pen, or a Sharpie.
I’d really like to see more genera brand logos designed in this way, as I think this would be a fab side-project for some creative to get stuck into.
I’d have a go, but I’m useless with markers. Anyone?

Serge does have these for sale, as limited edition prints, over on his Colab-Gallery page, under projects titled: Marker for Life, and Hall of Fame.
About Serge Lowrider
Born 1972, lives and works in Fribourg, Switzerland.
Due to printing his first stickers at the dear age of 8, Serge Nidegger knew already he would make it his job.
After learning the tricks of the trade the regular way, he realized, that the only way to keep on printing and painting with passion is to open his own studio, in 2000 he takes off as Lowrider.
Serge sets great value upon the craftsman tradition of the computer-free era of the 60’s, when sign-painting was it. The experimenting that one can find in his work can also be found in the numerous collaborations that he leads with designers, brands, rock clubs, art galleries and festivals, seizing those opportunities to try to push things forwards.
For this exhibition, he chose to pay tribute to the Markers.
