Bursting into the design arena a mere two years ago, Container has enraptured clients and peers alike with their multi-layered, detailed illustration work. Digit spoke to the dynamic creative duo to find out more...

<p>
We approach every project with a lot of humour,” says Luise Vormittag, one-half of the illustration team Container. “When there is a stressful patch we remind each other why we chose this type of work in the first place: because we love to draw, we love to create our own mad worlds, and we love to work to our own schedules. 
</p>
<p>
“Even when computers are in meltdown, the client is changing their mind about what they want for the 27th time and the courier breaks our wonderful 3D creation, we wouldn’t want to change what we do!”
</p>
<p>
And, in an nutshell, that sums up the design duo of Vormittag and Nicola Carter. An infectious enthusiasm for art and design, plus the ability to fuse illustration to photography and even moving image, marks Container out as one of the studios to watch in the coming year.

What it doesn’t convey is Container’s eclectic array of work – and its ability to inject beauty through imperfection. The duo have worked on everything from editorial commissions, shop window displays, and exhibitions, to decorating Lab Cafe for Selfridges in London and creating the visual identity of MTV show Lush (which you can view on Digit’s cover CD).
</p>
<p>
And even though Container was only fully formed in the early part of 2003, the past three years has seen it develop a unique and highly demanded style.
