a walk in winter wonderland

Here are some impressions from the walk I took in the frozen and very quiet landscape yesterday.
Every time I’m in nature I’m fascinated by it and so inspired.
Mother nature is the best designer. There is so much beauty and magic and wonder.
Just as Ansel Adams said:

“I believe the world is incomprehensibly beautiful — an endless prospect of magic and wonder.”

With each New Year we get a fresh, clean page to start over.

Here’s hoping that life writes a beautiful new chapter for you this year.

Happy New Year!

INSTAGRAM FIND – studio_elke

Why haven’t I seen this earlier? Sydney based jewellery designer Elke Kramer has been designing unique accessories and statement jewellery for eleven years. I just found her on Instagram and need to share. Studio Elke designs “Unique objects, jewellery & accessories for the curious individual”. I love the maximalist aesthetic here of “more is more” and the bold gestures. There are great combinations of beautiful materials and great shapes – so inspiring. And I love the artistic packaging with the splatter paint pattern. Please take a look:

••• Red •••

Red is energizing. Red is powerful, warm and positive. Red the color of energy. Red will get your attention.
It’s the color of physical movement and awakens our physical life force. Don’t be afraid of Red. Red shows action, passion, strength and courage.

New Glass Systems – work in progress

It’s always so exciting to share some work in progress with you for a new brand identity. This Logo is going to be for a window company in Miami. Here you see the moodboard which I pull together from different images from my Pinterest galleries as a research. The board is my starting point when I’m beginning to sketch and put ideas together in illustrator. I then develop 2-3 series of logo concepts. We wanted a clean, modern look. I choose the color palette and fonts. And then it’s off to the client for feedback. I love to develop logo ideas, it’s so interesting to dive into new businesses and industries I haven’t worked in before.
