Perusing ICFF 2019 in NYC

When I first attended ICFF about a bajillion* years ago, I remember it being SOOO epic; so unattainable. This year, I had a totally different experience. It seemed edited & intimate; fresh, yet livable. Not that there wasn’t editorial-worthy content, it just wasn’t quite as outlandish (or pervasive) as years past. I didn’t feel like the products were designed for an exclusive, haughty club, but rather, just designed to be kinda great. And they were.

*Technically, 1996 is slightly less than a bajillion years ago. Only just….

Love this project by Sydney-based designer Olivia King. “Trigonometry is a concept packaging project that looks at the how an increasing demand for a greater user experience and interaction with a product can be met through a thoughtful design approach. Focussing first on establishing a bright and engaging visual identity for this idea, I also wanted to explore the way that an app can allow for a fully unique creation of an item that is tailored to the customer’s personal preferences – from colour, shape and material – and in doing so, elevate the value of the customer’s role in both the brand and its product.” Gorgeous!

Fresh Flowers

It’s cold in these parts. REALLY cold. The kinda cold where you imagine maybe staying safely tucked away in one’s home until April or so. And so what I need today is a little happy reminder of things to come, in the form of an assortment KT Smail’s delightful floral illustrations. Ahhhh, that’s better…

KT Smail was born under the purple skies of Scotland and graduated from Edinburgh College of Art with a First class (hons) degree in Illustration. She now lives in Brooklyn, New York where she works as an illustrator, painter and art director.
