Los Vegas,the almost mirage like metropolis that sits in the middle of the Mojave Desert is well know as sin city. The land of the elopers with elvis themed weddings,where Project X like parties started, and where one can become rich and then poor again all at the hands of a craps table. Most folksonly stay in the city for a few days at a time before heading back to there respective homes where no one talks about what happened because we all know the one rule about vegas “whatever happens in vegas stays in vegas”. Well German communications designers Daniel Rettiig and Hendrick Schneider already had plans on bending that rule when they
took a trip to Los Vegas at the end of 2012 to create a spectacular project for their bachelor thesis . The creative duo spent seven weeks in Vegas with the plan to create and unusual portrait of the city and the people that inhabit it. The final result turned out to be a well put together publication titled “Views on Vegas “that contains a series of 42 portraits and interviews with citizens that display the visual impressions of life beyond the sinful strip . What I like most about this project is the resulting publication . In my opinion the usage of white space made the photos stand out more and gave it a more of magazine editorial feel almost like a lookbook for the city of vegas . I am still and up and coming designer myself so I am always fascinated by the good taste and projects of other young talented designers .
