Artist Spotlight: Ingrid Tsy

3D artist Ingrid Tsy previously caught the attention of Adobe when she was tasked with creating the landing page images for Adobe Marketing Cloud’s Target and Primetime. Her signature style of fluid lines, sharp textured patterns and surreal color pairings have brought her recognition in the design field. The futuristic, highly abstract designs lending perfectly to leading innovative brands, hence her previous clients including not only Adobe, but Lexus and the Coachella music festival. As our featured artist of the month, we spoke to her to find out more.

ADOBE STOCK: Can you tell us a little bit about yourself and your creative background?

Ingrid Tsy: Hi, my name is Ingrid and I’m a 3D artist based in London. I got started in graphic design back when I was in high school making posters and event visuals for the student’s association. At the same time, I started learning Photoshop and Illustrator, and before I realize, I’m suddenly making things from brochures, birthday cards to banners for friends. A few years ago, I decided to pursue graphic design in London and I absolutely love the design scene here.

AS: So how did you get started in digital art professionally?

IT: It started last year during my second year in university. As much as I enjoy set projects, I don’t feel the adrenaline and freedom the same way as when I’m creating for myself. I guess a lot of people started “Everydays” because of Beeple, including me. That was when I first touched on 3D and have since been creating every day for one and a half years. Personally the “Everydays” project is just a playground to practice, but slowly, and luckily it brings me commission requests and attention to my work. I’m very new to freelancing but it has been challenging and exciting. The best thing is along the way I met so many like-minded artists/designers who inspire me a lot!

AS: What are your perceptions of stock images, and do you think the perception is changing?

IT: I think the perception of stock images is changing in a good way. For contributors it is such a good platform to showcase and make money off their hard work. I used to associate stock images with clumsy watermarks and floral patterns but it’s different now! It’s so much more about quality than quantity. They are great for reference and texturing: sometimes I will throw in a couple images to Photoshop for quick mock ups; other times I will browse for inspiration.

AS: How would you describe your style?

IT: Not very sure if I can pinpoint. But one thing I know is I love organic forms.

Part of starting the “Everydays” project was also to experiment with different visual trends and understand what I like and don’t like. It really doesn’t matter if I have a distinctive style or not because at the end of the day when you have fun creating work, it shows through.

AS: Where do you find your inspiration?

IT: Anything and anywhere!

There are so many designers I absolutely admire like Iris van Herpen, Tom Wiscombe, writer J.G. Ballard and director Satoshi Kon. Terry Gilliam’s Brazil and Lars von Trier’s Melancholia are the only few films I go back all the time for their stunning production design and cinematography. Otherwise I love to travel – the streets of Japan and Hong Kong make me feel like I’m in a sci-fi world.

AS: What are you excited to work on in 2017?

 IT: Right now I want to get better at 3D sculpting.

When my friends see my work they always wonder how they’re going to look when 3D printed. I realized most of my work exists within the screen so it will be quite exciting this year to try materializing some of the 3D sculpts I’ve made.

AS: What music do you currently listen to whilst working (if any!)?

IT: During the day I will put on music that pumps me up. I love working in the dark so when the sun sets I usually put on either softer tunes or podcasts like The Collective, Art Cafe, Design Cinema etc. I’m getting more into listening to podcasts instead of music because it’s so interesting to hear what other designers of other disciplines have to say.
