/ What's new in the design digital culture

Diamonyte duo

Gilles & Cecilie Studio design, illustrate, curate, paint walls, write copy, share their knowledge through lectures, talks and workshops, make tailored work, like to push boundaries. Whew!

_______

Their works feel like a never-ending Summer of youthful boundary-less exhuberance. Loads and loads of colors – or none. Diamond shapes are a must obviously but not limited to. Surfaces – in-store – outdoors – wall or window treatments abound as packaging to stamps.

Life choreographed and celebrated.

Creativity is messy

Fabulous letter – of admission – creativity is messy. I know – just back from attempting to record WAABM debut album – and the ‘title’ track drove us not only up the walls – but the colliding 2 styles – proved – irreconcilable. So we did a ‘rewrite’ of the song – found a new direction and took 5 days off.

We were spent.

As a good friend said:

These things take time.

_______

So encouraging you to NOT COMPROMISE. Better be as you want – then try to be a crowd-pleaser or worst – succumb to perceived (usually false) perception of anticipation.

Open Letter to our Future Users by Bespoke Atelier

After a rocky beta (users had to provide UDID (device id) to receive app and just about ready to launch Bespoke – a server glitch derailed the app in iStore and delayed it for 5 more weeks – until ‘bug’ was finally fixed.

Now the waiting game is on for Apple approval.

Starting a project / app / venture?

Must read.

It’s time to call it: Pulling the plug on Buyosphere by Tara Hunt

Tara is a serial project starter – she’s hard working, witty and driven like no other I know (except perhaps for Michele – they abide same realm) – and yet – after a humble TedX plea, venture seeking, (almost) burning out working up / down startup avenue..

The worst just happened.

The rebound will be exceptional.

Must watch video for startup DO / Don’t.

Kat Teutsch

Kat Teutsch photographic style is like cup to cake and leave to twig. Not overstuffed! Not overlit! Not over staged! Not overdone.

Natural. No less than quietly brilliant. Genuine. Feels ‘real’ and warm.

_______

She is a food, still life and interiors photographer living in New York City. She also shoots a lot of travel/personal projects around the world.

Paula Scher *

She is not a refiner. She operates on instincts; she gets it the first time or second or never.

She thinks clients like to buy process (time) and are afraid if you get it instantly!

She was told to illustrate with type.

She felt her hands had been cut off when the puter came around.

She thrives for this moment when she knows she has nailed it and lives for it!

Meet Paula Scher from Pentagram.

_______

Her design approach seems to be to stamp as many – and as much big BIG typography as possible.

Her knack at putting odds + odds = eccentric intrinsically beautifully balanced projects.

Her best work are letter driven – not picture driven. But her choice of visuals with off-center cropping and / or duotoning and / or monolithic subjects complete her expansive typography – perfectly.

Visual osmosis. Virtuosity.

_______

Guess it’s easy to understand why one of her books is titled: Make it Bigger! A journey into her three decades of design.

Must read!

Deluxemodern etc.

Christine Tafoya is a self-professed design addict and renamed ‘etiquette‘ by ‘manners‘ to describe her online store Dear Miss Modern Market ethos where you can find exquisite ‘templates’ for special occasions.

_______

I am a grown-up geeky tomboy eye candy seeking editor while she is this buoyant festive stylish stylist for brand and home!

She recently quipped: ‘HTML gives me asthma.’ To which I replied: ‘<a><strong>O2</strong></a>’.

_______

She befits perfectly the description of a Powagirrrl: Women who rock the design scene with more than pink design..

..and Pink is definitely a predominant color with none of the pejoratives.

_______

Deluxemodern design studio tagline: ‘Mixing business with Pretty – Specializing in all things chic and clever.’

LOVE LOVE LOVE!
