Darling Clementine is a small Norwegian design agency that also offers an edited collection of products under the banner: “Darling Clementine Paper Empire” (love that moxie!). I am totally charmed by their scandinavian aesthetic, and ability to create work that is clearly modern yet gives a warm nod to tradition. They also write a nice blog that you can visit by clicking HERE.
So I saw this image on Pinterest, but the page it was linked to was an invalid 404 kinda deal. But I had to know who created it. Which is why I LOVE the interwebs, and Google in particular. Simply upload the image on a seach page and – voila – many shiny things to follow! Which led me to discover Portland-based artist Ashley Goldberg – the hand behind this exuberantly expressive page. Totally inspired to start visual journaling again…
Intriguing. Eclectic. Inspired.
That’s how Celedon describes their Charleston, South Carolina home furnishings shop. It also fittingly characterizes the recent redesign of their brand by J.Fletcher Design. Jay Fletcher, a graduate of the Columbus College of Art & Design, created a deeply compelling branding statement that’s both elegant and contemporary. His simple color palette and smart typography have me, for one, highly motivated to trek down south for a bit of a shop…
One of the early type animations that totally inspired my love for the craft.
A little history… Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone!
Happycentro is a multi-platform Design Agency based in Verona Italy. One of my favorite pieces of theirs is this stunning identity/packaging design for a raw chocolate brand.
Our formula for beauty is mixing complexity, order and fatigue. We like contamination between creative disciplines and diversity in general. We don’t like doing same thing twice, and prefer going further what we’re already able to do. It is tiring but satisfying.
