Short film on Sarah and John Burrows of Wood Design

Short film on Sarah and John Burrows of Wood Design

As the evening draws in I thought I’d bring across this short film that shares the story of Sarah and John Burrows, who run a website I’ve been enjoying on a daily basis for quite a number of months now. Wood Design, if you’ve not come across it before, offers a selection of handcrafted furniture from various craftsmen and women based in the North of America. After visiting each independent the …

Selection of Imagery from Carlie Armstrong

Selection of Imagery from Carlie Armstrong

After highlighting Jennifer Causey and her Brooklyn Makers book the other day I came across another photographer that’s passionate about sharing some American creativity. Tonight I thought I’d give her work a showcase here because I’m a big fan of what she’s trying to do with her own project and felt it deserved a bit more attention. Much like Jennifer, Carlie Armstrong is in awe of the collective artisanal movement going on in her area and …

Brooklyn Makers by Jennifer Causey

Brooklyn Makers by Jennifer Causey

I thought it was about time we returned to the talented Jennifer Causey now as a means of promotion for the fantastic little book she’s been curating in Brooklyn which celebrates the districts creativity and independent community. For a while now I’ve been watching from afar as she’s added a taster of each individuals work she’s visited and we’ve even featured a few here ourselves in our daily content. What’s great about the book is …

Art Quest London Interview Billy Lloyd

Art Quest London Interview Billy Lloyd

One subject we don’t often touch upon here is business, as to be honest with you we aren’t particularly motivated by the idea of making lots of money. I’m sure this may seem strange to many but we can honestly say that our platform is founded upon our passion for sharing creativity alone. What really drives us forward is the idea of a creative community, supporting other independents so they can fulfil what they consider to be their …

Olga Bennet Photographs Kim Mckechnie’s Studio

Another great week begins and with it I thought we’d make a return trip to view the progressive portfolio of Australian photographer Olga Bennet. As many will hopefully know Olga is someone who’s work we have admired here in the past and it’s been brilliant to watch her talents flourish and mature over time. I thought today we’d highlight one shoot she put together for her recent series …

Made Here Series: Folk Fibers

Made Here Series: Folk Fibers

The Levi’s Made Here series is a project we’ve highlighted in the past yet until today I hadn’t noticed any further developments. I’m glad they’ve come through with another short film however as we get introduced to the talented Maura Ambrose who is responsible for Folk Fibers, a company she set up in order to market her handmade quilts in Austin, Texas. Like many creatives we’ve come across in the past Maura defined her business …

Short Film on Photographer: Mikael Kennedy

Short Film on Photographer: Mikael Kennedy

This is a bit of a short project by all accounts but I really resonated with the individual the film was based on, so hopefully a few of you do also, being fellow creative minds and all. The film basically speaks of Mikael Kennedy’s realisation of becoming a professional photographer in New York city, and the journey he’s had to take in order to fulfil this goal. I’d imagine many of you can relate to this in that there’s often situations where sacri …

Short Film on Sunset Craftsmanship Co

Short Film on Sunset Craftsmanship Co

Outside of Japan these bags are really hard to get your hands on, which is a bit of a shame because here we get to see a video which showcases lots of love and attention to detail as each individual bag gets put together. I’ll have to hold my hands up and admit I’ve not seen too much else from Sunset Craftsmanship co but I’m sure if you spoke to Mark he’d know a little more about them. Personally I was taken aback by the skill …

Kinfolk Volume Two Filmed Preview

Kinfolk Volume Two Filmed Preview

For those of you who missed our exclusive post on Kinfolk’s latest issue or for the fans that just adore cooking, today I’ve brought across their latest release which is a filmed preview. I’m pretty fond of their subtle promotion pieces if I’m honest, they always seem to offer something different in terms of promotion, it’s all very inventive and in this episode we get quite a sombre mood from the outset with winter being a …

Made Here, Centinela Traditional Arts

Made Here, Centinela Traditional Arts

Filmmaker Jay Carroll brings us the latest from the charming little video series that Levi’s have been collating titled “Made Here”. In this edition we get to see the work of master weaver Irvin Trujillo as he introduces his craft explaining to us all how he got into the industry, and developed his own style of weaving – I particularly enjoyed the loom shots I have always found them to be fascinating contraptions. I thought …
