Super Silo AKA Martijn Van Dam - the 3d Illustration master of club flyers

Super Silo has been putting out a bunch of incredible work lately, with his illustrations getting even more detailed and complex and his typographic style getting cleaner.  He even gets to do work for Dieselboy...now how's that for a flyer designer coming up in the world.




Can you imagine how much time this superman has to put into these details?  It would drive an ordinary human being insane.  I want to know if he designs sober.


Freaking awesome aircraft design - not sure what it's inspiration is, but its like a cool version of those podracers in Star Wars Episode I.


So much deatil


Make sure to watch this video of him illustrating the flyer.  You jaw will be left hanging.



Podracer on steroids #2



If you thought he only did aircraft and cute animals, think again.

Who doesn't love robots?

Does anyone else use cat robots to promote dubstep or drum&bass?
I don't think so.




The illustration on this flyer is depth defying



Airplanes, rockets, jets -- SuperSilo knows how to get cool techy illustrations to complement his club flyers





Textures ahoy.  Check out the process video of Van Dam's design:







 I cant believe how complex this little planet is, all for a club flyer that fits in your hand...The details must be tiny in print, but superior in clarity.

Reminds me of that one Nintendo racing game, Extreme-G

Again with the attention to details...


 





























Amsterdam-based Super Silo aka Martijn van Dam has been an all-star on Flyer Goodness for years now, so we figured that we'd finally compile his rightfully deserved super-Friday megapost.   He's an artist who uses digital design programs right -- to their full potential to create so much depth and detail that would be much slower by hand, if not impossible.  Martijn is a Jedi of club flyers and gig posters with clean 3D illustration, bright colors, tech-like typography, he is able incorporate beautiful aircraft, jets, spaceships, octopi, cats, cat robots, transformers and anything else you can think of.
