Kilian Eng AKA DW Design was born in Stockholm, Sweden in 1982 where he still lives and works. In 2010 Kilian Eng graduated from Konstfack, University of Arts Craft & Design in Stockholm from the master group in storytelling, graphic design & Illustration. A couple of years ago Kilian discovered the possibilities of working in a digital way with illustration. Without losing respect for the powers of pen and paper Kilian started to investigate this new medium. The computer proved to be the perfect tool and gave exactly the kind of workflow he was looking for.
Today Kilian Eng AKA DW Design is working digitally with almost every visual project making illustrations rich in colour and often with a lot of environment presented. In recent years he has also started to work with animation for telling stories. Since he often thinks in terms of a longer sequence when illustrating the many possibilities with moving image connected to storytelling has proven to be a great addition.
A big interest in Kilians work is to create alternative worlds, they can become visible just by opening a kitchen drawer or listening to the sound of cars on the street. Imagination can take over everywhere and be the starting point to create something unexpected. Much Inspiration comes from the interest in both classic and futuristic architecture, surrealism, science fiction, theater scenography, different elements and shapes in the nature as well as in the urban landscape.
Some Kilian clients include: Miami Horror, Frite Nite, Tesla Boy, Digital Arts, Acclaim Magazine, Acne Production, Playboy US, Eight Magazine, Kulturskolan Södertälje, Tokyo Dawn, The Sound Of Arrows and Lazer Sword.
