Florine Kammerer – New York Dogs

3 Jan

Florine Kammerer studied graphic design and illustration with Niklaus Troxler – the famous Swiss poster designer; this is where her love for posters and screen-printing started.

Since finishing Art School in 2008, she has been based in Vienna, Austria where she has been working for several clients in design and illustration, in the art collective dasviadukt as well as for well-known design studios such as Alessandridesign.

Kammerer loves illustration and loves to draw. She started a one-year project called adrawingaday during her recent stay in New York City. She wanted to capture moments, thoughts, and observations. Some of her stories are fictitious, some have been experienced. Some are travel or daily reports, some are jobs she is currently working on.

Part of her drawings became photo-illustrations for clients or for other projects. The following series “New York Dogs” was photographed in the streets of Williamsburg and was part of her personal illustration project within the adrwaingaday blog.
