UXUS

I have just discovered brilliant design and branding agency UXUS’s offices in Amsterdam. UXUS fuses art and design to create new brand experiences and like to think of their work as ‘brand poetry’. Their work is playful and inventive and it seems they have saved the best in design for their own mesmerizing offices. Set […] Read more…

Tingle Tangle Spoons!

Hee, hee, I don’t know what I like more, these spoons or their amusing name! Tingle Tangle spoons are created by Belgian ceramic studio and Etsy seller Atelier Oker and created using a traditional method with stoneware clay and glazed halfway.

Louise’s Stained Glass Biscuits

A few weeks ago I posted some cookie cutter products from Cox and Cox. I was especially intrigued by the giant snowflake cookie with the stained glass window style sugary details. Passing it off as a baking feat only reserved for catalogue shots, I sighed wistfully and moved on. Some weeks later, my lovely Food […] Read more…

Illustration Tuesday… Kate Forrester

I featured Kate Forrester’s delicate handiwork for John Lewis’s Christmas campaign last week, and became so enamoured with her work, that I decided to share some more with you.
