One Line Images

DFT, a French illustration duo are genius. They transform complex images into icons using only one line. I am in awe. I am in love.  dft giraffes

Describing their work: “During our creative process, we usually go through several phases that are visually rich and complex. Then, we take the necessary time to remove what’s not substantive. It’s a maturation process that is somehow painful as it consists of letting go, giving up. But, it’s also very demanding as minimalism requests a certain level of perfection. Every element must have its sense, its utility, its intrinsic beauty.”

I promise you’ll love them. What’s your favorite? Here’s mine:
