- On the 19th of March it was snowing heavily, turning the landscape into a Christmas card. And ten days later spring unfolded. Talk about going from one extreme to another. I snapped this photo on my way to the studio this morning. See the dew drops?
- Unforgettable theatre experiences: Gertrud by Hjalmar Söderberg and The Master and Margarita by Mikhail Bulgakov. Both on at Dramaten, The Royal Dramatic Theatre in Stockholm. Richard III is next on the list.
- Soup has been on the menu lately. Cheap, easy, healthy and with endless variations. Reminds me of my idea to make an illustrated cookery book.
- On the radio (in Swedish), one programme on The Self in the Digital Age and one on Surveilled and Content in the Digital Age. Both by The Philosophical Room.
- And lately I've been working on several projects that involve graphs, more on that soon!
Starkis. Contemporary and Unique Works of Fabric
Last week I helped my friend Anne Vilemsons of Starkis put together her new business website. Anne designs and makes unique, contemporary work of fabric and offers curtains made to measure. She's got a waiting list for curtains, and you can sign up here to order yours.
Beauty and function meet in Anne's unique collection of bespoke pieces that give you pleasure in your daily life. At the Christmas Market we'll be introducing her new collection of unique hand-made bags, cushion covers, tea towels and napkins made of fabrics that I've designed.
Starkis' Visual Identity
For Starkis' brand identity system I've put together colour, typography, photography, patterns, icons and illustrations to convey her brand's values and personality to the world. The graphic language can be used for print and digital media and can be put together in different ways, while maintaining a strong brand identity.
The result is a combination of graphic elements that express a timeless, contemporary, energetic, bold and creative free spirit.
Check out Anne's new business site Starkis and say hello!
Speaking of using your iPhone as a creative tool, here are two photos I snapped on my way to the studio. There's so much inspiration to be gathered in daily life, and the camera allows me to register and collect colours and shapes on the go, like a photographic sketchbook.
