“For me, it is always about content. So if colours help to underline a statement, I use colours. Sometimes I start with a lot of colours and suddenly I realise that they distract from the content, so I remove all of them to work just with black-and-white. Sometimes an artwork feels cold and weak and only by adding the right colours does it reach full power. Every layout is different. Every situation is new.”
