Hi, my name is Peter Mintchev and I am a designer and an artist. I use this site to share my work.

Work

I enjoy working on a wide range of projects from quick experiments done in a free hour to large projects spanning years. I always try to challenge myself in creating something that is better and different from what I have done before. I am not showing this work trying to say: “This is it! “ but sharing a set of projects that have taught me something and had made me a better designer. This site shows a path of development rather than a catalogue of achievements.

Illustration

Illustration is a passion of mine. It is a skill that has been extremely useful in tight deadlines, and I have often employed it in my work. I have been illustrating as a sort of chameleon for the most part, using the appropriate style for the occasion. However, in the last two years I began to focus on developing a more personal style that reflects my taste and influences.

Art

Visual art is a very important part of my life and I am actively exhibiting and developing my artwork. My artworks are held in a number of private and public collections, and I have been short-listed for a number of prestigious contemporary art awards. Often my design ideas are directly inspired by contemporary art. My artist website can be viewed at: www.petermintchev.com

Inspiration

I try to stay informed of contemporary culture as a whole, from politics and sports, to literature, art and design. Inspiration, for me, is a process of filtering through this information to find points of reference upon which I can build my practice, taste and even identity. Perhaps the best way to show who I am, then, is to share what I like.

Art and Concept

Gerhardt Richter has been one of the most influential artists upon my thinking. His work is simple, conceptual and enigmatic. If I could live with only one piece of art it would be one of his paintings.

Typography

Typography is a science and an art about which I am continuously trying to learn. It is something that can either make a design or ruin it. Choosing a font is like choosing a personality.

Modern Architecture

Web Design is similar to architecture in more ways than one. I have been greatly inspired by the work of Tadao Ando and the way he infuses materials with lyrical qualities while bringing a minimalist approach to space and form.

Photography

Robert Frank's book The Americans is so full of visual narrative and surprises, that I think it could be used as a compositional manual. It has strongly influenced my own approach to photography.

Painting

Much of my inspiration comes from visual art. De Kooning is one of the painters whom I see in a different way every time I think about his work. His style seems to shift between an intimate form of expression and a public statement. When I saw his paintings in person I was surprised by how exquisite they are.

Music

For me the best thing about music is that while I am unable to play or technically understand it, I must therefore experience it only on an emotional and aesthetic level—which in a sense is very objective. Devendra Banhart is one of my recent favorites: a musician that possesses almost schizophrenic stylistic diversity, yet also revels in a highly recognizable individuality.
