"Being determines design" so or similarly one could describe the work, which Thomas Marutschke arranges. The illustrator and artist established with the "Trashline Studio" 15 years ago and works since then as a freelancer for striking and modern artworks. Originally the work was cut out by hand of colour foils. From this developed a special graphic illustration technology, which he converts meanwhile as vector graphics directly with the computer. Numerous considerable companies used his graphic style, which is particularly suitable for Logo and signet design. Since 2003 Thomas Marutschke´s works increased on free digital work, and there are various book and graphic projects and different exhibition participation. Many of these new works are represented with Posterlounge.
