Jort: “Jan Urschel, one of the speakers of Playgrounds: The Art Department 2017, is one of my all time heroes when it comes to SciFi designs. His work is clearly inspired by the Asian Urban areas where he lives and works. That, combined with a great technical know-how and design sense, helps him keep bringing fresh images and designs. His love for photography is also showcased by his works: bold shapes, graphic and rhythmical compositions are always recurring elements of his style. Looking through his portfolio always gives me great motivation to push my work more and try new things and new approaches.”
