Young Guns 8 WINNERS

2010: After deciding that having a trophy that was simply a smaller ADC Cube wasn't going to cut it, Young Guns 8 introduced one of the award's greatest traditions — the Cube would be redesigned every single year, so that each class would receive something truly theirs. The Young Guns 8 Cube was designed by artist, entrepreneur and YG5 winner Justin Gignac and artist, furniture designer and YG2 winner Michael Whitney. The Cube was made out of wood, and at the October 7, 2010 ceremony and party, recipients had to saw off their own Cubes.


Jonathan Calugi

Jonathan is a young illustrator hailing from Pistoia, Italy. It’s nearly impossible to not recognize his signature style: what at first appears to be a child-like doodling, a closer look will reveal a world of intricate, carefully crafted patterns and eccentric geometric forms.

Jonathan’s illustrations create worlds that lend themselves to multilayered storytelling, says Adam Flanagan of 160 over 90 and who selected Calugi for the De’ Longhi Artista Series.

Trees, faces, birds and even water taps give way to playfully hidden words or letters. As Jonathan puts it, It’s like ‘Where’s Waldo?’ Each time, you can find a surprise. Jonathan’s world encompasses anything from fonts to t-shirts, and never fails to send out a positive, encouraging message - a stark contrast with what can be a messy and rather perplexing world at times.
