Serious Studio

I’ll be heading to the Philippines in May, so I’ve been doing a bit of research on the local restaurant scene. Which is how I stumbled upon this brilliant bit of branding from Serious Studio, a Manila-based creative studio “dedicated to turning good ideas into great experiences”. Based on the exceptional design, I visited the web site (you might want to too – it’s awesome: The Girl & the Bull), and have determined it’s a must to check out while I’m in town!

Today’s Track – Asheville Home, The Humble Grapes

Tags

,

Tomorrow I head out on a little adventure with girlfriends from college – to Asheville North Carolina. Random? A bit, I suppose. But I understand it’s an awesome town surrounded by some pretty stunning nature, and I’m looking forward to taking in as much as possible over the course of the next 5 days. I’ve been putting together an appropriate play list (as is my MO for our girls’ road trips) to set the proper mood in the rental car. Here’s a taste… Asheville Home by The Humble Grapes from their self-titled album, 2014.

I’ve had this song in constant rotation lately; an easy, chilly groove with an urban hipster vibe that doesn’t take itself too seriously. Northwest by Aim from the album Flight 602, 2006.
