No designer represents the rising-tide graphic design strategy of commingling traditional drawing and digital technique more than London’s Hellovon. Moving into three-dimensional deviancy, he's now collaborating with product designer Hideki. Their virtual Morte Per collection, meaning “to die for” in Italian, is the debut from their Vonhideki brand currently boasting five proposed products: the Suicide Bath, the Choker, the Tip, Youth and Beauty Body Cream, and the Columbian Table. Ironically, the Suicide Bath is the least dramatic among the shard-glass tiara looks of the Choker (pictured above), a diamond-tipped sex toy (the Tip), and the urn-shaped packaging of the Youth and Beauty Body Cream.
According to Hellovon, the duo “are in the early planning stages of something big for Design Week 2006.” Hellovon and Hideki are also featured in this month’s The Royal Magazine and the KDU "Omerta" exhibit that opens Thursday 27 April 2006 at the Triple 5 Soul store.
