    "To achieve good, timeless packaging, you have to enhance and embrace the personality of the product, in exactly the same way that clothes and accessories are used to express someone’s personal style."

    Jasper really takes his job seriously to amplify, clarify and give insight to the story by ordering, structuring and using type and form strategically in search of the right tone of voice. Most of the time his work is based on straightforward graphical elements with a lot of attention paid to detail.

    “The main problem I find with a maximalist approach is how long it takes to create a piece. Being a commercial illustrator, I always have to work to really tight deadlines, so I’ve developed my style with these in mind. Traditional 3D modelling and sculpting can take ages, but as I don’t want my work to look ‘real’, I can process it much faster. I like to create my own stylized versions of real-world objects that are a lot quicker to model, and have more personality, too. Adjusting/balancing all the elements, textures, colours and lighting can still take a considerable while though, so I re-use a lot of settings and materials to save time.”

    "I’m not sure whether what I am doing is maximalist. It’s for other people to label it. The way my work is is because of where I am. The network, the society. But the subject – and message – should come from the artist’s very own spirituality."

    “I don't believe in graphic design being only an expression of the designers’ personal vision, I think it's rather the solution of a communication/identity problem or wish, a translation through a very personal interpretation.”

    “The major challenge I’ve found with maximalism is the difficulty of controlling design elements. Often, it’s hard to know when you’ve crossed a line of ‘too much’. Physical spaces and installations are exciting, but because they can be so large and require so many resources, the ability to succeed in this space and in this style becomes exceedingly difficult.”

    “What I especially like about the profession of designer is being always in contact with art, with new ideas, colours, new projects and new challenges, new software. The career of a designer is never boring; every day is a professional and personal growth.”

    “Simplicity, above all, is the key to an effective infographic and the best way to achieve simplicity is through the intelligent reduction of the elements and objects that distract from our message. Careful editing is crucial. As difficult as it may be, it is important to delete excessive portions of the design but still insure that the intrinsic value of the message is not lost.”

    “Maximalism is big, excessive, intense and a little bit crazy. Maximalism does not care if it is hip, fashionable or popular. Maximalism is compelled to exist, regardless of what the public likes, wants or thinks. It is overwhelming, all-consuming and can’t be controlled. Maximalism does not fuck around or play by the rules... it is blunt, honest and in your face. Maximalism is a celebration of unfiltered real life, everywhere, all the time, all woven together.”

    “Good design is something giving you the pleasure to be used, watched, heard, smelled, touched. At a reasonable price. My advice for those talented designers is do what you really like to do. Consider that there is always another good way to design something.”

    “I would describe my style as tongue-in-cheek. Intense but playful. I think my work contradicts and plays between light and dark themes. No matter what the image is, there are always some sinister, teasing undertones. To me, maximalism is expressive and a matter of obsession, yet something extraordinary.”
