A visual journal.
Some posters I designed for a school project. We were to choose an artist or designer that was supposedly lecturing at the SF MOMA and design a poster for the event, inspired by the work of the artist we chose. I chose Armin Hofmann,who is known for his black and white designs and swiss style. I ended up submitting the design on the right for a grade because my professor liked that concept better. However I'm happier with the poster on the left.
If there is one accessory I could never live without, it would be my scarves. I have a growing collection. I'm in love with this line of scarves by A Peace Treaty. I also like that they support local village artisans, employing artisans with above fair trade wages and creating income generation opportunities for out-of-work artisans, disabled and widowed women. They are currently working with craftspeople in nine different countries including Pakistan, India, Nepal, Turkey, Afghanistan, Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador and the US. I think that's pretty fantastic. Did I mention I love the styling? Shop the full collection here.
Yesterday on my to-do list was "buy plane tickets to Paris." (Obviously it was an easy task to cross off my list.) So we're heading over there the end of this month for 5 days....and I am thrilled. I've been to Paris just once before when I was 18 with my cousin and a friend. Paris took me by complete surprise back then, as I wasn't expecting it to live up to the hype. Oh but it did though. I told myself I would go back one day with my husband. Now that we live in Vienna, one day is finally here. So Paris here we come! Oui oui! I plan to make a little video while we're there to commemorate our trip.
We spent our long weekend in Croatia. We started in Pula where we saw the Pula Arena - a Roman amphitheater. Then made our way down the Adriatic coast. Dividing our time between Split, and the island of Trogir and Čiovo. Stunning views, fresh seawater air, a little sunshine and some Croatian cuisine - fish, mussels, and plenty of shrimps. It was a lovely weekend.
I love the branding and identity for Passport, an independent design bureau specializing in print-based design for branding, identity and publications. Not only do I love their personal branding, but I love their portfolio of work as well as their design approach. "As the name Passport suggests, travel is a large source of inspiration for us. Where you are born; where you grow up; where you study; where you work; where you visit affects everything from choice of color to application of type..." As a design and travel enthusiast, I totally get that.
