I stumbled upon Fillipo Marongiu‘s work and it was such a happy little moment. His designs for Carousel, a company that designs and operates casual dining restaurants are just so darned cute! They really make me happy :) A happy Monday to all!
Ooh this is so cool. You must look at this coolness.
How does one creatively market a dictionary? McCann Melbourne created a brand new word to do so – “Phubbing – the act of snubbing someone in a social setting by looking at your phone instead of paying attention.” They created an an entire site and a Facebook page dedicated to their very own word. Their interactive site is quite cool although it does go on for a bit too long.
Time for some pretty packaging people. I want to eat these candles by bella j. Something about the colours makes me think of candy. Hip hip hooray and Tie-dye are my favourites. The delectable designs are by New York based artist Sujean Rim. These lines in her about section kind of just made my day – “As a kid, I loved running around my cement backyard and enjoyed Sundays, when I could read Charles Schulz’s Peanuts in the paper and watch Bugs Bunny all morning with a giant bowl of Cocoa Pebbles. Comics, cartoons and picture books inspired me to draw and want to be an artist. I wanted to be everything from a painter to a sculptor.”
Look no further. I have found the answer to the question you have been asking all your life – how do they fold these napkins like this? Terry Fabrics has come up with a towel-folding infographic that teaches you how to fold your towels in the shapes of animals! I’m going to try the mouse and the crab. Everything else looks like some serious origami that I cannot fathom.
I love me some good artistic film. Christian Dior has launched “1000 Lives”, a new Dior Homme film featuring Robert Pattinson. It captures a character so beautiful in hidden moments that feel like memories. It makes me want to spend a weekend with my camera, exploring everything everywhere.
Felt is in. Jacopo Rosati has taken it to a whole new level. The Italian illustrator has created a large collection of colourful designs made of plain felt. Snipping and trimming them into works of art. I can almost feel the fuzziness just looking at the editorial versions. And those x-rayed felt bones are so adorable.
