Peter Lik is a globally known photographer for his amazing landscape photography all over the world.
He is an inspiration to me by the way he captures breathtaking shots of landscape in such situations where he is also risking his own health. To me, that shows real dedication and passion towards his own work.
Mike Bruner - Modern Graphic Designer

I came across Mike Bruner more recently whilst looking for inspiration in others' work.
The reason why I like his work is because he is always playing with his ideas of design with his style of modern digital art in mind.
He has a cartoon side to his graphics, but I prefer more of his logo designs because you can spot how much detail has been implemented in to such minimalistic designs.
