Cristian Zuzunaga – Mr Pixel

Spanish born designer Cristian Zuzunaga has zoomed in on color, literally, to create a fresh perspective on print design. The Royal College of Art graduate works with pixel concepts, applying designs to fabrics used in furniture upholstery. Inspired by architecture and the urban environment, Zuzunaga combined his graphic design skills and knowledge of printing techniques to devise his signature style based on squares and rectangles.

He has now added more pixel-inspired designs to his portfolio including chairs and artworks. – Lisa Evans
