In Our Nature by Takashi Homma

In Our Nature by Takashi Homma

A slightly different twist to our usual content today, it’s quite rare that we focus on books per se but I still think it’s a prevalent part in both of our lives. I’m a book worm and tend to collect a lot of design orientated books that not only feature content for my brain to absorb and learn from but also inspiration in other fields as well. This could be architecture, furniture making, photography, craft, I guess my life pretty much runs …

Ceramics by Laura Carlin

Ceramics by Laura Carlin

Ceramics is a craft that seems to have gradually worked its way into our content on a regular basis over the past few months, we are big fans of subtle design and I think pottery is an obvious platform for this. Keeping things local this morning, we are visiting the work of London based creative Laura Carlin who doubles as both an illustrator and budding ceramic artist. While I was browsing Pintrest this morning …

Set of Imagery from Freunde von Freunden

Set of Imagery from Freunde von Freunden

Freunde von Freunden are a collective that we’ve shared in the past, and they’ve been known for their insightful short films in which they interview various inspiring creatives. I’m quite an avid follower of their work as I think there is something quite inviting about hearing a creative individual talk about their work in the comfort of their own working space. When viewing the Freunden site recently I was reading through …

Photography by Jaime Beechum

Photography by Jaime Beechum

Some fantastic imagery taken by San Francisco based photographer Jaime Beechum. This isn’t the first that we’ve showcased work from an individual based in San Francisco. There seems to be a massive creative movement going on there at this moment in time, it’s quite impressive to see the vast amount of work turning up from photographers, illustrators, and designers a like. Jaime has quite a variety of photographs on his …

Set of Imagery from Caitlin Van Horn

I’ve really enjoyed browsing through Caitlin Van Horn’s page this evening, in fact her wonderful foodie images have been making my mouth water a little. She started her charming little blog “Roost” over a year ago when herself and her husband embarked on a specific carbohydrate diet free of gluten, grain, sugar and dairy in aid of healing the Crohns disease that her husband had developed. Working by day as a graphic …

Set of Portraits by Aaron Feaver

Set of Portraits by Aaron Feaver

Aaron Feaver is a photographer we’ve come across previously and have enjoyed his work before, although now it seems as if he’s grown into fashion photography a little more since I last viewed his portfolio. In the past he didn’t seem to capture too many portraits which was a shame because viewing these is all the evidence you need to argue his undeniable talent for portraying a persons persona …

Portraits by Adam Bordow

Portraits by Adam Bordow

Simple yet beautiful portraits by Adam Bordow, a photographer based out of Santa Monica, California. His works are not only adventurous, as far as portraiture goes, but also wonderfully composed and really characteristic in their appearance. For example the above photograph of a lady named Adri from Pasadena, every little element seems to be placed perfectly, such as the stool in the background, the …

Alvar Aalto: In the Master’s Home

Alvar Aalto: In the Master’s Home

You may have seen me mention Alvar Aalto before, whether it be here or on my personal website, and over the weekend Nowness created this fantastic feature showcasing photography of the interior and exterior of the Alvar Aalto house in Helsinki, Finland. Alvar was a Finnish architect and designer, and was probably the most important Finnish architect of the 20th century. Not only did he design buildings, he …
