Manuel Astorga Design Illustration Studio


“Extrabold” book illustration series

In one of the first sections of Serial Cut’s “Extrabold” book, Sergio del Puerto showcases the early-stage designs of Serial Cut studio. I developed a timeline with illustrations of pop-culture events that happened between 1999 and 2004: Each illustration is a synthetic representation of one of those events, giving readers a historic context to understand the design style and trends of those years.
