RE: In the Hood

Okay, had to share this lovely piece by Rachel Pfeffer Designs as well.

In The Hood

I've been looking for a unique piece of jewelry and have come across a lot of wonderful pieces, but this Neighborhood Ring by J Davis Studio really stands out.

Plenty To Go Around

Gorgeous illustrations and typography by Plenty. Constructivism, I'd like you to meet Day of the Dead. I'm totally jealous right now...

Minneapolis, The City of Bikes

Minneapolis was recently voted the #1 biking city—woohoo!! Unfortunately, I'm still one of those people who drives everywhere (don't judge me, I feel awful enough as it is) but I would totally buy one of these beautiful bicycles! I can see it already... MARIE. Very nice.

Homemade is Best

Creative and informational photography of ingredients and food by Carl Kleiner for IKEA's newly released baking book called "Hembakat är Bäst” (Homemade is Best). Makes avid fast-food goers such as myself reconsider their dining options.

New Yum Yum Toys!

New "Heroes and Villains" toy series by Yum Yum London. I can't decide which one kicks more ass... A Rambo-like dude equipped with a double-barrel shotgun, a grenade and a chicken? A karate grandma wearing a coral blouse? A brainless zombie wearing only one shoe? An octopus bearing sweet and salty treats??? Too much goodness for one day!

Colors of Autumn in Your Home

One of the many reasons why Autumn is my favorite season is because of the color palette shift that seems to happen overnight. The sun hides behind clouds, creating spectacular views of over saturated colors all around us as the trees turn various shades of red, orange, gold, and bronze. The prints by piktorama give me a sense of Autumn colors, mixed with vintage textures and a breath of freshness with teal and light blue accents. All available to purchase here.

My Kind of Motivation

When it comes to motivation, everyone responds differently. Some like compliments or encouraging words, others such as myself like to be challenged. These perfect motivational prints for gluttons for punishment can be purchased at Felt & Wire.

Detailed Beauty

We've all seen about a gazillion wedding invites, but Erin Jang does it like no one else. Her attention to detail is painfully gorgeous, and the southwest theme shown below is like nothing I've ever seen. It is fresh and clean, two attributes I never associate with southwest graphics, and the colors are tasteful and charming. This is an excellent example of taking 2 things that seem overdone and creating something unique and beautiful.

Joe Stephenson

I really appreciate London-based designer Joe Stephenson. His style is clean, simple, and most importantly, conceptual. He doesn't work out of a vacuum or make things "pretty" just because he feels like it, instead he creates a strong platform and builds upon it. Each design element has a purpose and all materials support the big idea, leading to powerful identity and meaningful design.
