Graphic design by James Newcombe of Newco81

The latest addition to our creative links section under design is Oxfordshire based James Newcombe of graphic design studio Newco81.

He has a fantastic amount of clean structured layout skills in his armoury aswell as an array of talent when it comes to identity work. Also on display in his portfolio you can see his photographic and web work, well worth a look…

If nothing else you have to check out his stunning self-initiated project Process: Decay

Having established a grid and rules, this piece was created by rolling a pair of dice to choose colours from a set palette. After a certain number of rows were completed, the palette starts to decay – as colours start to become the same as the background hue. This introduces interesting areas of space and contrast to the piece.
