Get Familiar: Sachin Teng

sachin teng

“Art is less a craft than it is a language. Sometimes things get lost in translation, so I spend most of my time finding the artifacts people have left behind.” Sachin Teng is a young illustrator and graphic designer originally from New York now LA based (man, I really need to be out there for start-ups). It has been a while since I have seen the fellow Behance freelancer until I spotted a magazine post “HIV Testing / A Cure for AIDS” on the theNewRuplic. Don’t ask how I ended up there. Just check out my man’s work underneath and be inspired!

“My specialty I’d say is the dialogue. I always think about what my work wants to say and then I design to communicate that feeling, because when your work has a conversation it isn’t necessarily a narrative.” Teng’s work has always been so amusing because of how he crafts the juxtaposition of a flat illustration and 3D elements. The elements give it much more to look at then something that is just flat.

Please, check out more of his illustration on his main site and sketch blog.
