Buona Confezione

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.

A Maker in Milan

MI+ED Design_Logo

MI+ED creates handmade, eco-friendly illustrated and hand printed goods; all using high quality materials like recycled paper, organic cotton, linen and non toxic inks.
All the patterns and drawings are created by the artist in her studio in Milan, Italy. (As always, click to shop!)

I’m a maker.

I love sketching anything that is smaller than my hand.
I love getting ink all over. I like to experiment with different materials and tools.
I get inspired by many things, especially by small things that people don’t usually notice.
I walk a lot and I pick up and put little treasures in my pockets: a nice stone, a bud, a piece of paper or string.
I have boxes full of these treasures.
I love nature and one day I would love to live by the sea or nearby a forest.

I put a lot of love in what I make.

10 Corso Como Logo

Admittedly, brandishing logos isn’t for everyone. But the temptation for me to do so gets molto heavy when shopping at Italy’s più sorprendente negozio, 10 Corso Como. I find their irreverently sophisticated branding and playful circle motifs completely irresistible. (As always, click to shop!)

What’s In Mywalit?

Last Holiday season, my hubby gave me the most incredible gloves. He found them at the Walker Art Center, where they were the very last pair and just happened to be my size. Made of the softest leather, they have a “peek-a-boo” feature in which a surprise of color appears between the fingers. I absolutely adore them. Fast forward 9 months (really? can that be right?); and I stumbled into the company that produces them while I was at the New York Gift Show. Turns out, they’re made by Mywalit, an Italian company best known for making handbags and wallets. They have quite an incredible range of colorful leather goods, each item equally as soft and vibrant as my beloved gloves. (As always, click to shop! – Although: buyer beware – shipping $ to the US looks pretty brutal; might want to look around for a local retailer in your area.)
