Louise Vormittag

Louise Vormittag is part of a group of designers called 'Container plus' they are a team of three and combine illustration with set design. She studied illustration and originally wanted to go it alone, she was a mature student but was lucky enough to find a friend who worked in the same way. When she graduated her and Nicola decided to collaborate. through practice they developed a way in which they could work in sync with each other really well. She says one of the reasons they work together so well is because they have the same level of commitment.

Over time they had become more interested in photography and set design. Their work was evolving from the line drawings they started out with. for example one their first commissions the selfriges shop window design. One of the reasons they was changing their work is so it would be more difficult to imitate their individual style. Their team over time grew from two to five, they took on two photographers and a set designer. They worked together for a year but then discovered things wernt working out. the chemistry wasn't right between the five of them and eventually the two photographers left the group. leaving two illustrators and a set designer. She explained how on big commission they hire assistants to help out with the work for example (cutting out shapes from paper) 

They have a huge list of impressive clients including Top Shop, MTV, SONY, diesel and Blossom Hill
