Semi-Permanent NZ shows German designer

Excerpt from the presentation by London-based graphic designer Toxi at Semi-Permanent event in Auckland

Karsten Schmidt grew up behind the Iron Curtain in East Germany. He is now in London where he goes by the name ‘Toxi’. His graphic design work is in high demand, and he was a speaker at a graphic design event in Auckland last week.

In his presentation at Semi-Permanent in Auckland on Friday 15 Aug Toxi’s video presentation included work he has done creating software for a virtual windtunnel that is used by Audi car designers.

 The video excerpt here shows that. It also shows Toxi explaining some of what goes on behind his creativity.
