Anyone interested in the importance of limitations on creativity should check out the new publication Vormator: The Elements of Design. Begun two years ago, it challenges artists to create a visual by using a very limited palette of shapes and possibilities. The results of the contest prove that even with a large number of limitations, a surprising variation of outstanding graphics are possible. A brilliant collaborative effort between Zeptonn and Booreiland, the book can be bought at the BIS website.
