1. Inspired By: Landon Metz

    8 Comments

    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.

    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.

  3. Recent Work: Branding for Katie Newburn Photography

    5 Comments

    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.

    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.

  7. Inspired by: Bedow’s Book for Julia Hetta

    7 Comments



    Julia Hetta (photographer) worked with Bedow (graphic design studio run by Perniclas Bedow) to create a really stunning booklet of her photography work. I’ve always loved the photos by Julia because they have a very mysterious fine art quality to them. I think Bedow did a really good job at showcasing her photos in unique way and I’ve been drawing a lot of inspiration from her with one of my current freelance projects. I just love working with other artists, especially when it involves designing their portfolio or lookbooks!

    If you need help designing your artist portfolio (print or digitally) or a lookbook for for next season’s launch, shoot me an email. I’d LOVE to work with you :)

    I recently stumbled upon the work of Matthew Craven and fell in love with his black and white ink drawings. His signature style is to sketch on aged paper and has a historical/cultural feel to them. I love how they feel like they were torn from the antique pages of a really unique history book .

  9. Inspired by: Matthew Brannon

    Back in 2012, Matthew Brannon had a gallery show at the Office Baroque Gallery, titled Ventriloquist. I first saw a few pieces of his work when Amy Moore posted about his just recently. When I first saw his work, I pretty much stared at it for a good 15 min. Completely feel in love with not only his work, but how it was presented in the gallery. I’ve always been curious to see how/why artist arrange artwork the way the do, and Matthew’s collection is just stunning. See more photos here.

    Thanks Amy for posting yet another inspiring artist to follow :)
