“Nothing beats to get to know a client over many years by doing projects based on
building trust in each other,” says Norwegian designer and illustrator Magnus Voll
Mathiassen (better known as MVM). Magnus’ portfolio is predominantly portrait based,
working with block colours to highlight facial shadows and characteristics. He also
experiments with mixed media, handmade and digital collage, always sticking firmly to
finding grace in stripping subjects back to their bare minimum. Magnus founded
Grandpeople studio in 2005 and has since created a solid, unique body of work that
appeals across the board from publishing to sportswear brands among others.
