Antoine + Manuel is an old fave of mine, I’ve shown you their invites to the Christian Lacroix show before and I keep waiting for my  invite each year but it never does seam to come! Surely it’s a mistake! Ohh well, will have to do with what I can see on the website and I just noticed some really cool rorschach inspired posters.

For Better Days

I really am a sucker for retro styled collages and I love when I come across really great examples of this genre. That’s why I almost shrieked with delight when I came across For Better Days even though it’s a rainy-supposed-to-be-summer-friday. I’m just hoping for a bit of summer, yes indeed, for better days!

With delight I have come across independent publisher Nobrow. Nobrow publishes small edition books with work from various graphic artists and illustrators like Blexbolex and Nick White. You should definitely check out their books and be sure to support small businesses like Nobrow. They also do various prints  to brighten up your walls.

Unfortunately we don’t see great packaging design come out of Denmark that often, but when we do envision:design is most often behind it. They’re a small unit situated in Copenhagen with ties to their bigger advertising brother envision in Århus. But they’re definitely kicking their big brother’s ass! Just look at this lovely line of organic products from Knuthenlund that they recently won a Creative Circle award for.

While in Berlin i spent a lot of time (and quite a bit of money!) in one of my fave bookshops Pro QM. On my quest for inspiration I came across Italian artist Maurizio Anzeri and I just have to show you this unique talent. Combining old thread patterns and photographic portraits makes for a very original output, would LOVE one of these on my wall!

His website isn’t updated but you can google his name for more pieces.

One of the best talks I heard at Typo Berlin was definitely Hort. I’ve featured Hort before but Eike König did such a great talk (even though my German is horrible and I needed translation) that I really wanna pay a bit of credit. Eike you rocked!

I must share Candy Chang with you straight away, she was the first speaker I heard at Typo today and I think her generel approach to design, and to life in general is very inspirational. She is an architect, graphic design and urban planner which is an interesting mix and makes for a totally different approach to design in local communities. I love her project “Sidewalk Psychiatry”, a series of stencils on the sidewalks of New York and a reminder to all the busy people not to loose track of reflecting upon their lives. Imagine walking around town with a problem and seeing this, loving it!!
