Oh my god I was in such a grim mood on friday! Copenhagen is turning it’s signature grey autumn colour and I am not liking it one bit. WE NEED COLOUR! That’s why I’m going all in on UK artist Tom Sewell this morning (and listening to Little Dragon, which to me is the musical equivalent). There is so much life, energy in humour in his work that it is making me COMPLETELY disregard the fact that I wore wellies on my way to the office and STILL have wet socks and that there’s a pile of drenched wet weather gear on the floor next to me. It is just SO unbecoming! Hello monday!
More colour? Right this way: http://www.tomsewell.co.uk/
On a boring monday morning you need a bit of colour don’t you? And if you need colour no one does it quite like the Brazilians. Just look at Danilo Rodrigues, here’s someone who isn’t afraid of the palet :-)

I think you can always tell when a designer comes from Brazil. The way you can tell is that they’re so bloody brilliant with colour and they’re not afraid to go overboard. Just check out Adhemas Batista, have a scroll down the website (which won an fwa) and you just can’t help getting a smile on your face. I love his tagline too “I’m selling colors” is very fitting!

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.

OK I’m back from a great trip to Japan. My back is litteraly aching from all the good stuff I was carrying home. So I figured I’d share a few Japan related things with you and first up is an ad I saw while standing on an overcrowded train going back to the hotel in Shinjuku after a busy day.
Panasonic made quite a cool website and ads for their new range and I love how the CMYK colourrange is so effectful.

I just re-discovered these colourful portraits from French design studio Helmo. I first saw these a while back and when I came across them recently again it was a happy reunion. I had completely forgot them, and I was surprised to see that I was still as keen now a few years later. What a few simple Photoshop effects can’t do ehh? Simple and great!
