we’re excite to announce our new neon & silver collection in collaboration with tabtag artist PARTISAN non_regular design. he has created stunning designs from quotes. they are available in silver, neon orange & pink and black & white.
PARTISAN non_regular design was founded in 2013, it establishes itself in the field between art and craft. initially, small images of street art motifs and typographic subjects were created, which are manually laminated to wood. the object lamps TYPE_LIGHTs with typographic designs complete the portfolio.
we had the chance to meet PARTISAN and learn more about his art- and design projects:
what is your background as a designer / artist?
I’m working as graphic designer but I love to create new products as the TYPE_LIGHT. so I founded PARTISAN non_regular design to do more handcrafted products.
do you consider yourself more of a designer or an artist?
actually I see myself as a designer, not an artist.
what was your motivation to start “PARTISAN”?
I shot a series of photos of street art in different cities. I always used the same style of filter, so the photos looked similar although they were taken at different locations. after the collection grew I wanted to do something with the photos and not let them rot in the drawer. so I did my first product – the „urban culture distorted“ series. These are by hand laminated photos on wood. after producing 50 images I founded PARTISAN non_regular design.
are there any other side projects?
I’m working as a graphic designer. but I love product- and interior design. beside my regular job I did a blog about art, design and architecture. I named it „kunstdirektion wien“ as I worked at that time as an art director. and then I founded PARTISAN non_regular design in 2013 to do my handcrafted projects. sometimes I really feel like a split personality.
would you like your side projects to become the center of your work life?
of course, who does not want to turn their passion into a career.
of course, who does not want to turn their passion into a career. however, bills have to be paid and that's sometimes difficult when trying to sell your products.
if you had a time machine, what’s the one piece of advice you would give yourself 10 years ago?
good question. hmmm, I would tell myself that life is not always easy but it is still worth to believe in yourself. make mistakes, take your pleasure seriously and stay hungry – stay foolish. BUT get shit done. if nothing helps believe in art.
