Happy Monday! So I thought today I’d share with you all one of my favourite design studios, POGO, a fantastic boutique studio based in Buenos Aires. Their work is stunning and so unique. I pretty much stalk their website everyday for inspiration and ideas. Can’t wait to see what else these clever cookies come up with. Leah 19.04
So I’m a bit of a font nerd and generally don’t admit it, but this just had to be shared. I love getting my little newsletters from My Fonts, and this month’s was a beauty. Cider Script being my fave, but you can check out the others here. There goes my next pay check. Oh dear. Leah 14.04
Oh my lovely. This is why I love paper so much. Whether Paperworks have designed a range of gorgeous, sculptural visions and I want one! Have a look on Etsy here and peruse through the offerings, or even get one customed made! Leah 14.04
Fresco loves Shepard Fairey. Check out this awesome mural that he done on Melrose Ave in LA. He was also responsible for the iconic Obama/Hope posters and a bunch of other design wow’s! Check him out on Wiki… http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shepard_Fairey or on the De La Barracuda blog http://www.barracudashop.com/ or Design Makes Me Blush http://blog.designmakesmeblush.com/ – He’s basically everywhere!

Sometimes inspiration can come from unusual places. This image by Carsten Peter of Speleoresearch & Films proves that the planet had taste half a million years ago. Mexico’s secret Cueva de los Cristales was discovered in 2000 by some brothers armed with a drill. What sounds like a horror movie was actually the start of an amazing discovery. It’s a geometry student’s heaven and a typesetter’s hell. “Carsten Peter specializes in photographing places inhospitable to humans—and cameras. He long ago lost count of how many he has ruined doing his job.” Nation
As we welcome in the cooler weather and the weekends become less about the beach and more about being inside, it’s the sort of weather that’s perfect for trawling through a good old flea market. Here are some of our faves here and around the world: Fringe Bar Markets, Paddington I’m a regular here, most weekends. Trawl through some fantastic vintage and handmade wears while sipping a glass of white and listening to tunes. Set indoors, this is particularly great on a rainy Saturday. The Village Markets, Burleigh Heads A fantastic selection of young designers and vintage wears.
We stumbled upon some awesome graphic design work by Helen Crawford of White Crush Design the other day. It’s really great to see an idea translate into a scheme or series that are related and look amazing together but also work as stand alone items. These Anna Blundy books will surely be bought in threes just because they look so hot together! Great inspiration for our magazine and publication design.
