You might have noticed that I have a bit of a winter frown on me, one of these days I’m gonna post a photo of Danish winter and you will think I’m living in a black and white movie…correction, a shades of grey movie (no, not the naughty one!) So I find that everything that catches my eye these days, and that I wanna show you guys, has the be FILLED with colour. And here’s another one, when I found Leta Sobierajski I got a huge smile on my face. I kinda wanna live in her photoshoot world where the bananas are polkadotted and the backgrounds are BRIGHT! YAY!

The other day I posted Louise Mertens and I think it’s really great to see how some of the same ingredients can create a totally different dish, to put it metaphorically. It’s the same style of fashion photos used in these kind of compositions but the two artists have created something very different from each other. I love that fact! Here, there are some bold colours and strokes instead. Would love both on my walls!

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:

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!
