Oh, Olivia!

Olivia King Logo

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.

In the Clouds

How cute are these cloud-shaped soaps from Vice & Velvet in Melbourne, Australia? Each weighs a hefty 140g and come individually packaged in a fabulous sliding box. With ingredients like organic green tea, organic white sesame oil and Dead Sea mud.

Our handmade soaps are crafted using the traditional cold process method with at least 50% olive oil. Due to the nature of making small, individual batches by hand, every cloud soap we create is unique. Vegan-friendly. Free from palm oil, parabens, mineral oils, Sodium Lauryl/Laureth Sulphate, synthetic dyes/pigments or fragrances.

(As always, click to shop!)

Ceramics from Spain

Maevo Studio Logo

Love these gentle ceramic pieces from Barcelona’s Maevo Studio.

Maevo designs and creates unique ceramic objects, made by hand. My process involves mixing different types of clays and minerals to produce one of a kind objects inspired by nature and the soft sedimentary layers that make up our landscape.

Oh, My Darlin’ Clementine…

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.
