Design Pieces from aprogramthatprovides

Yesterday I stumbled across this cool little tumblr site that sells different pieces of design titled ‘aprogramthatprovides’, most of which are right up my alley. A few that I’ll point out straight away include the salt and pepper pots by Enzo Mari that are featured in the 5th image from the top. I haven’t come across these before but it was designed for Zani and Zani in 1986, they’re actually made out of steel and used to come in a set of 6 to hold oil …

Photography by Cody Cobb

Photography by Cody Cobb

American based photographer Cody Cobb is such a talent in my eyes, in fact this will be the fourth time I’ve brought across a selection of his work over on to our platform, which I’m sure has to be some sort of record. His photos bring a sense of adventure to the table with such a considered eye. It’s not just the fact that he’s photographing stunning scenery, he frames each location meticulously and in the process pulls the viewers attention to subtle text …

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 …

Photography by Morgan Satterfield

Photography by Morgan Satterfield

Morgan Satterfield for those that don’t know is the marvellous mind behind the Brick House blog which we’ve enjoyed seen develop over the years, she certainly is one talented and dedicated lady in my eyes. Our internet travels over to her page are never disappointing and are always packed full of delightful design inspired objects and spaces, some of which I’ve decided to showcase here today. I don’t know how we haven’t featured any of her …

L.A. Cabin Living by Brian W Ferry

L.A. Cabin Living by Brian W Ferry

I’ve been super impressed with the work of photographer Brian W Ferry as of late, he’s somebody we’ve followed closely in the past and even interviewed before, so it’s always refreshing to return to his portfolio and see how things are developing for him. This particular series that I’m showcasing today was shared on his blog “The Blue Hour” which is a great resource for for inspiration, it often acts as a photo diary for the …

In the Make by Klea McKenna and Nikki Grattan

In the Make by Klea McKenna and Nikki Grattan

Continuing on from yesterday’s post on the ever so talented Leslie Williamson I decided I would point out another series which has caught my attention this week. I’m a massive fan of studio visits and this website that I found titled “In the Make” is basically heaven in terms of photography and content. Not only do they take a nice collection of shots at every studio they visit they also inter …

Short Film from Just So

Short Film from Just So

In terms of commercial reach Adidas are of course one of the largest in the world, so it’s natural for us as independents to stray away from the work that they do. That’s not being critical, just being honest. Today however at risk of sounding like a hypocrite I wanted to support a project they’re undertaking through London based agency Just So as they go on a quest to uncover raw creative talent. This perhaps sounds a little tacky on the surface but …

People Watching, Jesse Schlesinger by Leslie Williamson

People Watching, Jesse Schlesinger by Leslie Williamson

Many of you may know that we released a nice in-depth interview with photographer Leslie Williamson over the weekend, I was really honoured to have the chance to speak to Leslie, I’m a big admirer of her work and she’s a great person as well (added bonus!). So this morning when I woke up and heard about her releasing a new post on her column for the NYTimes TStyle blog I had to showcase a …

Interview with American Photographer Leslie Williamson

Interview with American Photographer Leslie Williamson

As the office begins to become over run with books, Leslie Williamson’s Handcrafted Modern has become a firm favourite amongst our ranks. So it’s little surprise that the photographer come author made it to the top of our interview hit list, and fortunately we were able to find a gap in her schedule to put one together. With news of the second installment of the book being compiled it …

Vintage Colour Photo Series by Hilda Grahnat

Vintage Colour Photo Series by Hilda Grahnat

I thought I’d throw a bit of a curve ball into the mix as we bring across a series of photography from Malmö based photographer Hilda Grahnat who has undertaken quite an observational project. Combining a few of her favourite vintage items in sets of colour Hilda provides us with ample classic everyday objects which I felt work as great thought provokers for anyone undertaking a fresh design project. Throughout the series reference is made …
