At last !

"The Vormator contest started over two years ago. It challenges artists to create a visual by using a very limited palette of shapes and possibilities. Artists are provided with eight vector shapes, called the Elements, which they are allowed to use within a given set of rules. The goal of the project is to show the importance of limitations on creativity. The results of the contest prove that even with a large number of limitations, a surprising variation of outstanding graphics is possible.

Since the start of the Vormator project, the challenge has been successful on the internet and is widely discussed on design portals, blogs and design forums. Also, a number of design professors are using the concept as a teaching method. In total, over five hundred submissions from all over the world were submitted to the contest.

And now, the best results are available for the first time in print! Eighty designers were selected from all participants to showcase their submission. The variety of artwork showcased in the book is intriguing. The artists comment in an inspirational way on their artwork, explain how they got to their individual solution. All works are illustrated with progress images of the artwork itself."
