design.Curious fact no1:The name vectorbrigade came
from powell peralta’s Bones Brigade.You know it makes
sense ;)

VEKTORIKA MAGAZINE IS
A COOL PROJECT ALWAYS
SMACK DOWN ON THE
VECTOR TIP

What do you think about vektor graphik? What do you
love about it?

I always draw stuff with pencil and paper before redrawing
it in vector.It’s the close i can get to drawing,as weird as
it sounds...Never got round using a pen though.Manage
to get good results just by clicking the mouse,so i’ll stick
to it ;)

Where are you from?

From the heart of europe,Austria

Could you share with us the history behind www.
vectorforsure.com? What does it mean?

pfadfinder (vectorforsure) is a collective of austrian
artitsts with the main focus on vector art.It is like a
platform where we can show our creative outcome,but
soon it became more then this.We had already artists
(graphic design,photography,digital art and architcture)
we’ve been working with before,and we also wanted to
integrate them into vectorforsure,after some time we
developed pfad.finder.

What did you think about vektor graphic? What do you
love about it?

Theres many ways of how vector graphics can bee seen
and used,just as a tool or as an artform.To me it’s of course
art,it’s a challenge to create styles that normally get done
with pixel based programs.And another important thing,
theres no dpi’s.

What kind of vektor softwares do you currently use?

I preffer illustrator CS2

How would you describe your style?

I describe my style as a kind of self-discovery,I always try
to develop my style as much as possible and trying out
different ways to get where I want.I dont want to stick with
one style all the time maybe the link between my works is
complexity,I like to look at images for some time and still
discover new details.
