1. Wild OliveLove these business cards designed by Stitch. They have such a tactile element to them when the tape is applied. Plus it gives each card a bit of a variety while adding a cared for, handmade quality—it would take an intense amount of time to apply the tape! And I love how they incorporated the tape throughout all of the identity collateral, see more via Lovely Stationery.
2. IconatomyDo you see Natalie Portman or Audrey Hepburn in this photo? This is one in a series created by George Chamoun that follows the theme of "icons." He describes it as:
I chose to work with movie icons from two different eras. This project has been a lot about ideals, patterns and anatomy. I named the project Iconatomy from the words “icon” and “anatomy.”To see more from this collection, go here. Found via Pinterest.
As our wedding anniversary gets closer, I start to reminisce about the past and occasions that I promised myself never to forget. One such occasion would be the trip my best girlfriends and I took a month before Andy and I got married in August 2007. It was one of my favorite trips I have ever been on. It was a time in life before marriages, babies, graduations, conflicts, careers, and moves across the country. A time where we were just six women who were looking forward to living our lives without a care in the world. And the laughter, the gut wrenching, cracking up til you're crying laughter. I will always remember this trip so fondly and whenever I think of San Francisco, I think of these girls and these friendships that I cherish so much. P.S. I don't have these photos on my computer so these are linked from Myspace. Holla back at that!!
Happy birthday to the bravest, most determined, woman I know who is the strength and soul of our family. Who always looks to the positive side of things, who dares us to dream, who has unwavering faith in things not seen. Her children rise up and call her blessed; Her husband also, and he praises her. Proverbs 31:2
Avant Garde When I saw these on Pinterest, I fell in love with their striking design, a combination of intricate photo manipulation with plenty of negative space, a contrast of complication and minimalistic design. See more from the collection by Maxime Quoilin here. Gent by Soon So what is that guy doing in this photo? He's creating the landscape of city of Ghent, onto the letter G. I love to see behind the scenes photos as they truly show the creative forces at work, and the many manual hours put into a project. Besides that, I would have assumed this whole project was digitally composed rather than having used a 3D model. Please check out the rest of the project here to see the final piece.
