Behind the Project: Boathouses

In this series we will look deeper into a work that was especially admired in our community: Boathouses, created by Rutger Paulusse. This piece captures the nautical spirit of the Dutch artist’s hometown of Amsterdam in a colorful, visually striking way. You can sense the joy Paulusse gets from the entire creative process in his responses to each question. Enjoy!

What was your inspiration for this project?

I live in Amsterdam which is packed with boathouses. I really love them and I really want to own one, one day. It has something romantic to it of course, but it’s mostly about freedom. Theoretically, you could move your house anywhere in the world, so it gives a sense of freedom. Also you don’t have any direct neighbors so that is really special in a crazy crowded city such as Amsterdam. I also really love the canals in Amsterdam. There’s something about water and floating which intrigues me. Maybe it’s just because us humans consist of 60%-70% water, I don’t know! After seeing a lot of boathouses and visiting some friends who own them I really wanted to use that as inspiration for an illustration series.

Behind the Project: Critters

In this series we will look deeper into a work that was especially admired in our community: Critters, created by Teodoru Badiu. The Austrian 3D artist’s fantastic, colorful, yet slightly twisted 3D character designs have gained Badiu an impressive following on Behance. Critters is a perfect encapsulation of Badiu’s unique style, so we asked the artist a few questions about the creative process behind his latest work.

What was your inspiration for this project?
I needed some small characters for a story that I developed based on my “Forest Folk” and “Pets and Monsters” characters. I thought that it would be a good idea to use worms, snakes and bugs as inspirations for the characters.

Behind the Project: Nike X Kobe

In this series we will look deeper into a work that was especially admired in our community: Nike X Kobe, created by Shane Griffin. The Irish born designer teamed up with Nike to create brand imagery for the 5x NBA champion’s latest shoe release. Shane was kind enough to answer our questions about his creative process and about the reception his work has received on Behance. 

What was your inspiration for this project?
Creating self illuminating glass isn’t as easy as you’d think. I needed to make the objects feel like they were illuminating the sneakers, while keeping the transparency intact. So I referenced some of my older work with glass objects, and tried to push it to a new level.

Behind the Project: Quotes, Lines & Lyrics

In this series we will look deeper into a work that was especially admired in our community: Quotes, Lines & Lyrics, created by Van Orton Design. Van Orton Design is comprised of twin brothers from Italy. The brothers have wowed the Behance community with their neon-hued, futuristic re-imaginings of pop-culture icons. The Van Orton Design duo graciously answered our questions about one of their most popular projects, in which two cult classics of American film have their posters redone in the unique Van Orton Design style.

What was your inspiration for this project?
The project was inspired by two cult movies of different years. They were inspired by the imagery that they created and by the incredible dialogue. The idea, however, was to place these two films in a different context, more contemporary with our times. There are strong references to the pop style mixed with sci-fi; lots of lights and bright lines.
