HLLBNT is the visionary & contrarian visual alter-ego of Simon Bent, the head of io Design Company. The HLLBNT visual universe feels like a fever-dream suture of Lichentstein, Peter Max, Jenny Hozer and Thomas Bayrle. Thick-lined illustrations radiate like an acid-drenched/plasticine take on Eadweard Muybridge's time-lapse experiments. Sarcastic inversions of corporate platitudes set in humongous Frankfurter type are clouded by a barrage of bubbles. Visionscapes out of a late-70s 7-up ad are peppered with dystopian takes on ineffectual governmental propaganda. Oversized halftones abound. And the net effect is alternately hilarious and thought-provoking, with tracers of eye candy ebbing and flowing as the book progresses.
