I love the posters by artist and designer James Joyce. They are almost painfully simple but I can’t help smiling, it’s like looking at an innocent child. I really wish I’d had a chance to go see his exhibition at the the Kemistry Gallery in London. I’m sure I’d have been skipping out of there with a broad smile.

I’ve featured IAAH before but since then Nessim Higson has updated with LOADS of great stuff. OK, the website takes a bit of getting used to (for a stupid blonde anyway) but there’s so much new great stuff that I totally forgive him.

I’ll end the week with just one more photographic post which might be a BIT too serious for a friday. But I’ll go ahead anyway. Just have a look at Richard Mosse. I came across his series from Eastern Congo and was totally amazed by the colours. It’s so surreal seeing something as serious as this made into something really beautiful and colourful.

While trying to recreate a BIT of order on my desktop I came across a series of colourthemed photos that I had meant to share with you months ago, but now is as good a time as any. I love photos like these were the colour and composition is a strong theme in itself. The series is a collaboration between photographers Ilse Leenders and Maurits Giesen.

WELL!! It looks like we’re finally getting a few days of summer in Copenhagen. So pull out those swimsuits, grab a sixpack and go to the beach…hmmm maybe not, it’s probably still too cold. But if you have a summer beer craving anyway, then have a look at the wonderful work that Austin based McGarrah Jessee did for beer label Shiner. I totally LOVE the style, it’s inviting and warm and definitely not designer pretentious. I wish I was a beer-drinking kinda gal, but unfortunately I prefer a nice glass of Riesling! Great work though!
