Mercedes Benz Illustration

During 2016, the german agency Realgestalt commissioned Romain Trystram to create another set of illustrations for Mercedes. As everyone knows, Mercedes Benz is one of the most valuable brand in the world, thank to their high-class vehicles. Probably also thank to the success scored by the company during the previous row of illustrations, they decided to go again with the talented illustrator from Morocco.
In his Behance presentation, Romain shared both flat illustrations and real applications on mobile devices. He shared examples of his work presented on iPads, websites and real paper magazine.
One of his keys characteristics are colors and perspective. In fact, he loves to play with city landscapes, specially during night. In this way, he is able to experiment as much as possible with lights and colors. Also looking at his previous work, we can see an extensive use of violet and cyan colors, which are generally supported by dark blues tones.

The Set

This set features five illustrations. Two of them contain a shiny Mercedez car as the main subject. Also the third features a car, but it is less noticeable, because it presents an air shot. The last one features a beautiful night-time landscape of a metropolis.
Both the first two illustrations feature an incredible Mercedes Benz Illustration, which looks almost real. The first one contains a side shot of the car, featuring a colorful outline, with stars that enrich the composition. The second illustration contains a frontal shot of the car with a semi-circular stripe positioned above the vehicle, which contains three icons. They represent some of the features that you can have with the car.
In the third illustration, Romain represented an aerial shot of a street during night-time, with a tiny car in the far right and two trucks around it.
The very last illustration, we have a beautiful landscape of a city at night, where you can see illuminated skyscrapers in the distance and a red-yellowish bridge in the foreground.

In Conclusion

Romain did an awesome job also for this set of illustrations. I wouldn’t be surprised to see a third set of illustrations made for Mercedes in the upcoming year. But the real challenge will be to come up with more creative solutions and scenes.
