AN ODE TO TYPE

Inspiration often comes from the simplest things. In this case, typography is what sparked the ideas for these ingenious conceptual posters by graphic designer Tom Davie. I can't get over how fun these are. I mean, really. His take on the various font names and juxtaposition of images is beyond clever. The print above “is meant to reference the clean look of modern design, while also utilizing the Modern serif typeface, Modern No. 20. The chair is a molded plastic design from the 1970s, with the “Modern” type drawn and painted onto it by hand,” he explains. All the prints are amazing, but his creative process behind each of the them is quite fantastic as well. So I you want to see more of his work (or buy his prints) and learn how they came to live, you must visit his site here.

SAY IT WITH PRINTS

I love everything typography. Letter shapes are so beautiful and graphic that they make great artwork on their own. I guess that's why Swedish art director Therese Sennerholt creates these popular graphic prints with quotations and sayings, some she has found and others of her own creation. Today, she's unveiling her new collection of prints, which by the way is beyond awesome. Also cool are the rustic vignettes styled by none other than Swedish interior-styling authority Lotta Agaton and photographed by Henrik Bonnevier. Have a swell weekend :)

ELROY INK

When I think of Tasmania, the first thing that comes to mind is the infamous Looney Tunes character, the Tasmanian Devil. But know, I'm glad to have found these gorgeous giclée prints by Tasmania-born graphic designer Ken Lawson to have a new reference to Australia's favorite vacation island. Based on the surf coast of Victoria, Australia, Ken created a limited and open edition of graphic prints under the name Elroy Ink. “Whilst Elroy Ink aims to express something that is quintessentially me, it's also important to me that my work is accessible enough to find a place in other people's hearts,” he explains. The whole collection is pretty great and is available on his online store. Do you have a fave?

WRITING ON THE WALL

There's nothing like creating art for your own home, but this London-born artist has taken this idea a step further. Well, actually, several walls further. Shantell Martin has made it a project to cover the whole top floor a Brooklyn brownstone with her whimsical line drawings. When she first moved in, her intention was to limit her drawings to parts of a wall in her room, but inch by inch her art spontaneously took over her office and laundry room walls. Apparently, she draws on everything that comes her way, which explains her crazy fun refuge. She's even taken bottles she found on the street as canvas to display her freestyle drawings. I wonder if her mom ever let her paint on the walls when she was little. She's definitely getting away with it now. And I'm glad she is, since I'm really digging her style. Have a designful and relaxing Holiday weekend!

INNER BEAUTY

Today, I thought I would take a small detour from the road of fabulous interiors to share with you these phenomenal and unique X-ray photographic prints by English artist Nick Veasey. Through his art, Nick likes “to counter the obsession with superficial appearance [we all seem to have] using X-rays to strip back the layers and show what is like under the surface.” The themes of his collections vary: from plant life, insects, fashion, toys, animals to aquatic life, man and machine. I'm simply in awe of his creativity and the beautiful imagery he captures using this technology. You can see more of his incredible work in his website and in this Limited Editions Catalogue.

IN THE CIRCLE OF THINGS

I believe simplicity is the key to beautiful design. And for me, the circle is one of those simple, basic shapes that can say so much. Its perfect form has been the basis for so many design solutions throughout time—and keeps inspiring many of us in our daily creative challenges. For German industrial designer Sandra Thomsen, silk screening circles has become one of her passions. These very minimal and graphic prints are some of Sandra's wonderful creations. They're hand-printed on beech plywood and paper using a very interesting color palette. It's great to see how something so serene and understated can add so much on a wall. You can take a look at the whole collection here.

ONCE UPON A TIME

Fairy tales have always been part of everyone's life. But every now and then, different versions of these classic children's stories we’ve grown to know and love are reinvented. As a matter of fact, they're not exclusively for kids anymore. Like the new TV series Once Upon A Time and the soon-to-be-released Snow White feature films, these tales get to be enjoyed by adults as well. These hyper-minimalist posters, designed by Christian Jackson, are also clever interpretations of these tales that you can own to keep alive those precious childhood memories. Just take a peek at the whole collection and perhaps you might not be able to resist the temptation to buy one here.
