Work Showcase: Christian Dellavedova

This week, the Directory of Illustration highlights work from Christian Dellavedova for Luiss University Press.

This week, the Directory of Illustration highlights work from Christian Dellavedova, represented by António Adrião Artist Representative (AAARep).

In 2022, together with the design/art direction studio Ifix Web, I was asked to create a series of illustrations for the covers of a new book series published by Luiss University Press.

Together with the art director/designer Maurizio Ceccato we asked ourselves what was the most suitable and modern style to inaugurate the series of books, also considering that Luiss was preparing itself to republish some international best sellers such as those by Helga Nowotny and Camille Paglia.

We opted for a clean, graphic style, thanks to the conceptual illustration, which with its flat colors and shades allowed us to illustrate the pop universe of Peter Szendy’s philosophy in his ‘Kant and the extraterrestrials.’ We let ourselves go to cinematographic quotes, from The X-Files to The Matrix, from Doctor Who to Star Trek.
