Analog Internet

Optimizely, a company specialized in web optimization asked Bier en Brood to make a mural for their new office that rhymed with the company's work field.

Since Optimizely works to make the internet more efficient, Bier en Brood decided to make a visualization of an analog internet which can be explored as if it were a planet. Or as an abstract image of space. They asked themselves "What does the internet look like?". This is what they came up with.

The Bier en Brood team consist of Koen Harmsma and Jelmer Noorderman, both graduated in Illustration at Willem de Kooning Art Academy in 2010.
Inspired by machines, nature and architecture, they possess a unique style, often interpreted as sinister and apocalyptic. In addition to making highly detailed pen drawings, they know what to do with spray-cans and paint.
