Up and coming German artisit Simon Schubert creates these sculptures on a single sheet of paper with some artfully planned folds. At first it looks as ifhe has used a scoring sylis but it is nothing more than artfully placed folds. From far away they appear as rectangular, white surfaces. Only at a distance of less than two meters do the paper works by Simon Schubert reveal their full three-dimensional complexity. In an intense process of folding paper the German sculptor creates lines, angles and even circles raised several millimetres. In the play of light they suddenly appear as views of st
I came across this whilst reading one of my many blogs. ‘Lisa is a graphic designer from Arizona who loves pattern and colour, and a passion for paper goods led her to create a collection of cards and stationery. You can view Lisa’s online portfolio Louise 2nd June HAPPY WINTER!!! även när andra stora mässan dök Det är en typ av tyg skars kjol!

I have become a bit of a blog reader of late and over the coming months the Fresco team will show case some of their favourites. I thought I would kick it off with this wonderful blog by a UK based designer. She loves design and all things related. I am always inspired when I read her blog and her latest illustration posts are just devine. The use of colour, form and detail are just perfect. The artist is maja lindberg from Sweden. Once a day she creates a new illustration to publish on her blog. So I guess that is another blog I will be following. You can discover the world of print and patte
A friend of mine just recently sent this to me…I have just started to learn how to embroider and who have thought. WOW people are so clever. A set of hand embroidered posters based on Gill Sans Light. First poster shows the combinations of four CMYK colours. Second poster shows the increasing resolution through letterforms stitched with Cyan and Yellow thread. Green colour becomes visible from a distance as the blending of colours takes place in the eyes of the viewer. In the third poster a single large scale letterform is hand stitched using conventional screen angles and the equal b
One of the wonders of the natural world, the Great Barrier Reef stretches along the coast of Queensland like a psychedelic cacophony of color and form unparalleled on our planet. But global warming and pollutants so threaten this fragile monster that scientists now believe the reef will be devastated in coming years. As a homage to the Great Reef sisters Margaret and Christine Wertheim instigated a project to crochet a woolen reef. The sisters, who grew up in Queensand, have been heading up the project since 2005, quiety watching as it has morphed into an unexpected and far-reaching wordwide m
Sydney has long lamented the lack of groovy intimate Melbourne style wine bars, but that has all changed with the arrival of bars like Vini and Mille Vini in our very own Surry Hills and my latest discovery Bacco Wine Bar and Pasticceria in Chiefly Tower (Louise its just around the corner from Deutsche Bank you’ll have to get Stuart to take you!!). Anyone that has read any of my previous blogs knows I am absolutely obsessed with all things Italian, especially good Italian food, and its here that Bacco is a real hidden gem. It has all the groovy touches of a Melbourne bar; the low level intimat
Last week I thought I would find out what our favourite fonts are and why. New fonts are always being released and depending on the design piece depends on the font used. For example for an invitation design font choice is more exciting as one can experiment, but if designing something more corporate like an annual report or company brochure fonts need to reflect the very nature of the conservative document. This is more challenging…as the typography can dictate the design. So I took it to the studio and asked our design team what their favourite fonts were and why… One of my favou
My inspiration this week has come from LA artist Audrey Kawasaki. Her work has inspired everything from the colour scheme of my wedding to the jewellery I’m buying. She creates beautifully ethereal images of unattainable ghost like figures, using oil on wood panels. Her works are soft, innocent and alluring. Below is an excerpt from her website: “The themes in Audrey Kawasaki’s work are contradictions within themselves. Her work is both innocent and erotic. Each subject is attractive yet disturbing. Audrey’s precise technical style is at once influenced by both manga comics and Art Nouveau. H
