Inspirational Resource: Pattern Curator

Pattern Curator makes me happy. It’s a fabulous resource for inspiration that I strongly encourage you to check out… you can get lost in there (in a good way)!

Pattern Curator collects images and photos to create a visual short story. Our goal is to inspire and connect like minded creative individuals, like yourself. We offer a look at print, pattern & color trends in a minimalistic point of view. Each board is curated visually in a way that is directional, relevant & trend-right. Whether you’re in the industry, an artist, designer, student, blogger, or have an interest in pretty pics, we hope you are inspired to create something amazing.

Fall Winter 2016-2017 Color Trends from Pantone

PANTONE_logo

This is a pretty darn interesting trend forecast! Pantone LLC, an X-Rite company and the global authority on color and provider of professional color standards for the design industries, developed Reveal, their Autumn/Winter 2016/17 color planner. Looking at color as a total language, this multi-platform forecast offers seasonal inspiration, key color direction and suggested color harmonies for women’s and men’s fashion, activewear, cosmetics and lifestyle, as well as industrial and graphic design. These color stories for 2016/17 display a contrast between color that is “real” and “unreal,” absent and present and a mixology of what is in between…

Almost Good Enough To Eat (Almost…)

Vanessa McKeown Logo

Vanessa McKeown is a London-based art director/photographer who has created an ongoing series “playing with food”, a bright and quirky world in which things are not what they seem at first glance.

I love creating all things colorful, usually from everyday objects being used in unusual ways. Sprinkles make me very happy.

Today’s Track – La Jeune Fille Aux Cheveux Blancs, Camilee

I’ve just returned from my Euro-adventure, and am trying my best to shake off the jet lag. But honestly, I’m still in a Parisian state of mind. La Jeune Fille Aux Cheveux Blancs by Camille from the album Le Fil, 2004.

Today’s Track – Feeling Alive, Lasgo

I’m exploring Antwerp, Belgium today – a spot in the universe where I’ve never been before. Why does that feel so good? I find the adventure of it all totally inspiring (and the shopping? Well, you’ll have to wait for that…)! So today a bit of Belgian music is in order, I believe. Feeling Alive (radio edit) – the single – by Lasgo, 2013.
