Designer in the Making

Blown away by these mixed media artworks by Dawn Gardner, found via Design for Mankind.

If you love her stuff as much as I do, you can also check her out on Tumblr.


These Made Me Laugh

Some funnies to put a smile on your face on a Monday afternoon. My type of humour for sure!

Ma + Chr Design Studio

If I was a designer, kooky Parisian design studio Ma + Chr would be where I’d want to hone my craft. Founded by Mathilde Aubier and Christine Delaquaize, the studio produces a variety of super sweet projects from web design, fine art and fashion, installations and interior design. The animal collages brought a big smile to my face this Monday morning!

Lim Heng Swee Illustrations

I discovered these optimistic, cute-as-a-button illustrations by Malaysian artist Lim Heng Swee via the fabulous August Empress blog. I can imagine them in a child’s bedroom or hung together in vintage frames in a quirky clothing store. Whimsical, playful and great for gifting.
