It’s getting increasingly busy at work – a swirling hurricane of new ideas and deadlines and mounting to do lists. So, this aptly titled dose of R&B feels right as a reminder that “we got this”. Under Control by The Internet from the Album Ego Death, 2015.

I’ve been traveling a lot lately, which is actually when I have the most dedicated time to just chill under the earphones. This track’s been in constant rotation as a mellowing agent… The Past and the Pending by the Shins from the album Oh, Inverted World, 2001.

Branding Trig

Tags

, , , ,

Sydney-based Olivia King is the designer behind this lovely example of branding and packaging design for Trig, a jewelry company where the pieces are designed by individual customers using a personalization app.

“Using a selection of native Australian materials, and hand-painted wood, the first prototype designs were endless; I realised the potential for the project where the designs were those of the customers themselves. Using the Trig app, each piece is unique the tastes and style of those making them, with colour, shape and material options available in multiple variations.”

Came across these charming “one line” animal drawings by Differantly Studios by two French designers based in Paris and Berlin. They seem so effortless & playful and yet so sophisticated!

Dyed and Gone to Hudson

Fig_Bella_Home_Collection_BannerI had the pleasure of visiting Hudson, NY last week where I discovered so many wonderful little shops! One that I found irresistible (and that did a bit of damage to my pocketbook) was Fig & Bella. They create scarves, wraps, pillows, textiles that are each individually handmade using a modern interpretation of traditional dyeing techniques.

Every Fig & Bella wool, silk, viscose, & tie dye cashmere scarf is individually dyed by hand in the Hudson Valley. All of our pillows are also dyed in our studio, and our candles are hand poured in the USA. Our cashmere is carefully sourced from master artisans and dyers in Nepal, with whom we work closely to produce only the finest quality scarves.

Pillows Start at $60; scarves at $89 (As always, click to shop!)
