1. Inspired By: Alberto Fabbian

    1 Comment

    Alberto’s project called &ABILITY is an intricate interaction of pieces. Each pieces has it’s own identity and each pieces is a smaller piece of the whole. The project was a collaboration between different craftsman, an idea that is held highly in Italy.

    “I believe that every artisans know-how reflects the identity of its territory. In Italy, where traditional handcraft has always played a fundamental role, craftsmen represent a real opportunity to experiment and innovate, as well as an essential way to create connections between people. -Alberto”

  2. Inspired by: Craft and Culture


    I was reading through my favorite blogs and came across a giveaway (now closed)on Jennifer’s blog, A Merry Mishap. Her blog is amongst my top favs and I get lots of inspiration from the things she shares. You should check it out if you haven’t already.

    Craft and Culture strives to bring the world of talented artisans to the masses. Their products range from accessories, to clothing, to jewelry. Read more about their unique story here. Another one of my favorite artists, Scout & Catalogue is also showcased in the shop.

  3. Inspired By: Landon Metz


    Landon Metz in an american artist (only one year older than me!!!) and living in New York City. If you follow my blog on a regular basis, you know that I’m drawn to artist who’s work is abstract, but overlaid with a unique story or concept behind the work. Wikipedia says that Landon’s work is centered around an elevated consciousness that he believes to be synonymous with a state of “no mind”. Without researching the work more, I took the work to be the result of painting without over-thinking.

  4. Inspired By: Nanushka


    I don’t usually post about fashion items, but when I see something that stops me in my tracks, I just gotta share. I stumbled upon Nanushka clothing company via one of my favorite blogs, Spell & Gypsy Collective. Nanushka’s pieces are so artistic and textural, they are stunning.

  5. Recent Work: Branding for Katie Newburn Photography


    Hello there! Hope everyone is have an amazing Friday and that you have something planned for the weekend! Usually I share some notable links with you on Fridays, but today I wanted to share a notable photographer with you, Katie Newburn. Katie is an amazing food photographer living in San Francisco. She’s been busy growing her body of work for a few years now and thought it was time to grow her brand image as well.

    Katie and I have been in contact and working together for many months now. Our goal was to look at the logo she already had and make some refinements to it. We also wanted to explore other ways a logo or icon could be used for her brand. An example of this might be an icon for an email signature, a watercolor icon to be used as a graphic element on a business card, or even a watermark to be placed on top of her photos. The end result is a cohesive brand mark that can be used across many elements.

    We’re also working to organize a large body of work and showcase the images in a designed and professional printed portfolio. The process has taken longer than expected because we’re trying to source the best printer for the job, but non the less…it’s all pretty exciting.

    If you need help with branding for your business, shoot me an email!

    I’ve been really drawn to these African baskets. I absolutely love the mix of color and texture…and who wouldn’t love their unique organic shapes. These little guys are a bit pricey, but the craftsmanship is one of a kind.

    What kind of house ware goods are you drawn to these days?

    Markus Amm is a really inspiring artists because he’s able to mix a bunch of formats (large and small), mixed with oil paintings and collages. The mix of all the materials and mediums are what makes you look at his work for long periods of time…even though his shows are seemingly simple. There is a real beauty in simplistic, abstract, mixed-media artwork.

  8. Inspired By: Ann Cathrin


    The intricacy of Ann Cathrin’s work keeps you looking for a long while…analyzing all the little details and personal touches. Not to mention the display of the work, the simplicity contrasted by the tangled beauty of each piece…that’s the best part.
