NICOLAS AZNAREZ has developed his very own style of flat design – both reduced and striking. His simple, often vivid depictions are direct and dauntless, his thematic illustrations are narrative, and his editorial leads are always underscored by an impetus or question mark. His labels (beer and wine) are frequently marked by tongue-in-cheek wit. Nicolas Aznarez has claimed a secure spot for himself in the DACH region in the areas of advertising and publishing across several products and topics.
The illustrator finds his clients in the legal field, for example MANZ PUBLISHING, in addition to culinary clients such as BAR CAMPARI or A LA CARTE, as well as the CHILDREN’s MONEY MUSEUM of Erste BANK with Kratky.net, FAZ, NZZ, OBI Germany, LUFTHANSA, SUZUKI, and AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL. All of which have gained enormous attention thanks to his special visual language. He lives and works in Madrid, has been represented by carolineseidler.com for ten years, and is a reliable and likable Ambassador of Illustration.
Nicolas has just illustrated for MANZ. MANZ’sche Publishing and University Bookstore GmbH, headquartered in Vienna, is Austria’s market leader for legal information. MANZ-Rot stands for legal certainty, quality and innovation among legal practitioners. ‘Der MANZ’ – whether online, in print or as a seminary – offers a comprehensive selection of information services for legal and tax professions and operates a renowned book store at Vienna’s Kohlmarkt.
‘As strong as bulls’ best describes the appearance of the monthly column with a concept collage by Claudia MEITERT, which has meanwhile been a part of RED BULLETIN for many years. The illustrator lives and works in Regensburg and has contributed for more than ten years with Caroline Seidler to visual design in the form of portraits, thematic illustrations, packaging design as well as animations/moving images.
Claudia Meitert knows precisely how to distinguish between commissioned illustration and art. Clients including Benevento Publishing, Swietelsky, Kapsch, Verbund, Weleda, Kärcher, designatelier, Red Bull Media, Gruner+Jahr, Otto Group, RG Publishing, and several more well-known German publishing houses, advertising agencies, and direct clients are delighted to work with this excellent illustrator regularly.

For DER PRAGMATICUS, Blagovesta BAKARDJIEVA illustrates a monthly column on ‘Solution Approaches’, providing fact-based information and orientation in times of sensationalism, abridged and exaggerated news. Pragmaticus is committed to a humanistic worldview and advocates civil rights and liberties as well as personal responsibility.

He presents you yet another of his facets here on GoSee – as an illustrator of children’s books. Just last year, his master’s thesis on the great explorers of the world was published at the publishing house Little Gestalten, Berlin, followed this year by his new book entitled ‘Explore the Rainforest’.

And GESTALTEN explains : “In their latest adventure, Emma and Louis embark on a journey to where nature is at its wildest : the middle of the rainforest. Under the shady canopy of the trees, they discover a world full of wonders, in which many of the most extraordinary and strange animals on our planet are at home. They discover monkeys, butterflies, frogs that can fly, and plants that work with animals in symbiosis, but also get to know especially endangered species like forest elephants or the Sumatran tiger.
Besides the immense diversity in the jungle’s flora and fauna, Emma and Louis learn a bit about the habitat, geography, the climate, and the people who live there. Come along and explore the Earth’s rainforests from the Amazon to the mangrove forests of Southeast Asia!”
