These clever posters made by Matt Willey from Studio8 Design in London, just stole my heart, since they are so simple & clever, communicating their message in a subtle but strong visual language.The posters are produced to raise awareness of the destruction of the Amazon rainforest for the US-based charity Rainforest Action Network (RAN).
Click at the images above to enlarge or buy them here or see the booklet at Magma Books - a great online bookstore.
'Forests are the lungs of the earth. The destruction of forests has been a fortifying factor in climate change. With millions of miles of old growth forests cleared every year, the earth is slowly suffocating under the increase of greenhouse gases'.

This bag - in blue, from Rikke Mai has been on my wishlist for a while now - it´s from a limited run of 100 unique handmade bags, it´s a bit expensive but I look for it everytime I pass the shop to see if it´s still there - so don´t you think I should go and get today?

The subject/challenge that was given to me was this vulture and some red velvet.
The cowboy theme that popped up in my head
My scrapbook with results of my internet research on vultures and cowboys
My final piece - a cowboy-themed photoshop collage,
Seeze Hope - and sew your own Cowboy hat!
I would like to introduce this fun project I´m part of right now named Grib! which means Catch! It´s a local project based here in Århus - and it´s inspired by this project. It all started last september when I met the talented photographer Ida Schmidt and we started talking about our freelance lives and all the clever freelancers/designers/photographers we knew here in Århus. To make a long story short - we invited 6 persons/studios to take part, and each got a wildcard - so that we would enlarge our network and end up beeing 12. The project is now up and running , with a great group of people, a blog and a book that circulates around town. The rules are simple, in 2 weeks create a visual piece inspired by a subject given to you - show your sketches/workprocess and the final result - and pass on a challenge/subject for the next person. The book must be delivered in person - over a coffee or beer together with the person you deliver it to. The blog is in Danish - but I hope you will enjoy it just the same, and may be inspired to create something similar in your own city.
You can see my workprocess above; I was inspired by Duane Hansson, Lucky Luke, Etsy, Misprinted type, Vinnie the Vulture and I couldn´t resist buying this retro cowboy-hat pattern on Etsy.

If you are a Polaroid lover too - you must visit polanoid.net. which already holds more than 80.000 Polaroids.

I´ve posted about Eleanor Grosch from Pushmepullyou before - and here we go again since these pillows designed for Urban Outfitters are too cute not to mention. On my wishlist is still a pair of Keds with seahorse print - and this pair with giraffes for Nanna.

I´m still here - busy as a bee and hit hard by hayfewer. I just updated my links section, and my blog-layout - always a work in progress! Here´s a picture of my desk and inspiration board. I´m going to Copenhagen tomorrow and from next week I´ll be back here as normal.
I´ll also start to label both new and old post then
