impossible is…

Thursday, February 2nd, 2012

“Impossible is just a small word that is thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in a world they’ve been given to explore the power they have, to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It is an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It is a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing!”
-  Muhammad Ali

pino: lifestyle store

Monday, March 21st, 2011

Gorgeous design work for Pino. I especially love the logo wall in the store. “Pino is a market place for unique, functional and innovative design objects. The idea for the concept camefrom the name of the shop, Pino, which means a ‘pile’ or ‘stack’ in Finnish. That is taken visually into the new logo and the design of the shop fixtures. The interior concept with a subtle colour palette works as a background for the fresh, colourful identity and products.”

design inspiration

Wednesday, March 9th, 2011

There seems to be a theme with all of these designs that caught my eye this past week; clean, simple, bold and vintage-inspired. They are all beautiful—hope they inspire you too!

Lovely Textiles is a blog devoted to a lifelong infatuation with fabric. It doesn’t look like it is being updated anymore, but still remains a treasure trove of textile inspiration.

exit through the gift shop

Tuesday, February 8th, 2011

Over the weekend I watched  Exit through the Gift Shop, a film documenting the inside story of street art. The film follows an amateur filmmaker Thierry Guetta who becomes obsessed with capturing the most famous street artists on film, only to have British stencil artist Banksy turn the camcorder back on Guetta with wildly unexpected results. I loved the movie. There is a mysterious lure to their rebellious artwork. A statement against society that fascinates and inspires me. With that said, after watching the movie I became obsessed with researching the main artists in the film. SPOILER ALERT: (Don’t read any further until you watch the film.) I found articles (here and here) claiming that the movie is a Banksy stunt. They went to the extent of stating that Guetta is actually Banksy. I’m not sure I agree with that but I do think the movie was a stunt. And here is one more article claiming to know the identity of Banksy. It is fascinating none the less, even if it is just a theory.

If you are interested in watching the movie it is available on Netflix watch instantly.
