Doe Eyed is a design studio that knows a thing or two about simple shapes, fuzzy textures, bright colors, patterns that make your eyes vibrate, bad jokes, and the occasional dirty drawing. Based out of America’s fabled Heartland (more specifically, Lincoln, Neb.), Eric Nyffeler and Michael Nielsen’s illustration style mixes gritty geometrics with hand-drawn elements to create a sometimes whimsical, sometimes abject style that is helping to redefine the visual aesthetic of the Midwest. While their preferred medium is the screen-printed gigposter (perhaps the Happy Meal of art canvases), they’re as comfortable branding a restaurant chain as they are designing and printing a poster for a local gutter punk band. Doe Eyed’s work has charmed the editors of publications such as Print, HOW and IdN, and has been featured in books such as Gigposters: Volume 2, Playful Type 2, 1000 Indie Rock Posters and 1000 Music Graphics.
