Totally distinct from the minimal, stream-lined aesthetics of motor vehicle adverts we’ve become accustomed to, Brindha’s illustrations pay homage to the intricate technical workings of new and old Porsche models which she researched for the project. Transporting these mechanical explorations into a surreal, geometrical world, Brindha aimed “to bring the viewer to a striking and somewhat unusual place” while maintaining a design “that is pleasantly steeped in tradition”.
For commercial projects like these, the illustrator works mostly with digital software. But for personal projects her process is more “visceral and sporadic, with an array of techniques and mediums also being deployed”. Discovering an intriguing range of Japanese imagery whilst researching a recent commission, Brindha recently embarked on a personal project focused around Japanese vintage toys. “The interesting characters on display in these vintage toys are totally aligned with my style”, she tells us. Experimenting with these characters and forms, the series is an ode to the clean lines, geometric shapes and cheery colour schemes which have come to define Brindha’s illustrative style. “They essentially just make me smile,” she concludes. “I hoped to extend a similar joy outward with my interpretations.”
