Liam Vries is a graphic designer from Zimbabwe with a love for design, it has always been his passion and what better to have a career in than something you live and breathe. For him, design is a way to determine how things function, not just how they look. Design involves assembling the right people, asking and responding to questions, and iterating forms continuously. What really interests him is the question of how we design our environment and graphic design plays a minor, yet complex part in it for it’s supportive to all other cultural disciplines but, as an exception, has no purpose without them. This interrelation is what makes it quite universal for being a detail and that’s a good starting point. He only works with carte blanche and aims to create a certain mood whilst keeping things as plain as possible.
