Berlin-based freelance designer Robert G. Bortholot has a way to my heart. The emphasis he impeccably has aced with photographic illustration and art direction mixed with highly stylized, avant garde characters play out his ocean of work; dolls, dust and limitless fashion are reigning themes that reside in his inspiration.
To discover that one does this so perfectly at first had me contemplating which series to put on this pedestal; like weak sauce, I vastly curated my own series of Bortholot’s selected works. What this really means is that I couldn’t really make up my mind so I picked my fab 5. Go on, crush with me.
