ON HER MIND MONDAY: Oliver Munday

Today I've browsing through the portfolio of graphic designer Oliver Munday, whose illustrations in the Times have caught my eye several times in the past few months.
A recent graduate of the Maryland Institute College of Art and honoree of the esteemed STEP 100 Design annual (for this cool 3-D typography project, in case you were wondering, consisting of plastic toy army men, melted and melded), Oliver must be, deductive reasoning tells me, only a mere few years older than me. And yet he's already got a great portfolio of work up his website. Check out a few more of his pieces after the jump.

Clean and modern and current without bearing the usual flashy pomposity of many young designers our age, these illustrations are really great. Also, I don't know if this is the stuff of art direction or what, but, aside from the clever witticisms (or cynicisms, I guess, depending on how you see it) of these images, I love the way in which they've been incorporated into the text of these pages.
