Young Guns 10 WINNERS

2012: For the tenth edition of Young Guns, the program abandoned its 50-winner quota, opting to simply award the very best entries, no matter how big or small the class would be. The result: a lean and mean Young Guns 10 class of 34 exceptionally talented winners.

The Young Guns 10 Cube and annual, both designed by YG5 winners Andre Andreev and Dress Code, and hand-lettered by Timothy Goodman (YG7), were made of concrete (yes, a book with concrete covers!) and emblazoned with Roman numeral Xs to mark the class. The ceremony and party took place on November 8, 2012.

Frame Inc.

Tim Boelaars is a designer and illustrator in Amsterdam. He specializes in icon, identity, logo, and packaging design, as well as illustration and art direction. He is known for his sharp simplicity, conceptual clarity, and firm handshake.

Born in Haarlem, the namesake of the better-known neighborhood in NY, Tim was raised on colors. His grandfather made art during his life’s in-between moments, and every Wednesday he set aside time to draw and paint with Tim.

As a teenager, Tim found refuge in the dynamic letterforms of graffiti, so he learned to dismantle and reassemble complex rattlecan ciphers. In college he slipped headlong into a deep obsession with illustration, an initially more private pursuit.

Since 2009 Tim has worked as an independent graphic designer and illustrator. He strives to create clean and interesting work for company’s of all sizes. Tim is currently being represented in Europe by Agent Pekka and in the United States by Mendola Artists.

In 2012 he co-founded a store in Amsterdam named Concrete Matter. In 2017 he started a small membership based co-working space named Plant22. This is where he and 7 other creative freelancers grow, collaborate, share ideas and merge talents.
