I finally put up the Apeshaped print on Etsy! Check it out here. There’s only 10 of them left so get yours before they run out :)
is books! I’ve had this unusual craving for books this last month. Inspiring books about typography and random pretty thangs. It’s really important that they are pretty though, and contain big images. This year I’ll try to do all my own christmas shopping early, probably heading out this week allready.
Have you got in the christmas spirit yet? Done some shopping? Written wishlists? :D
This morning I woke up with a christmas spirit humming on Rudolph the reindeer and then I started wondering why his nose might be red. Disregarding that its probably because of the cold it cooould be because of something much deeper, sad and dark. And thats when the story developed into a little written lyric, that turned into a recorded set of drawings, that was toped with a vocal recording done on the iphone, mixed with an instrumental track found on soundcloud which was finally edited into a video in Premiere pro. Totally useless, meaningless and with the lowest priority ever, BUT… it was fun ^^. Hope you like it.

Today wonderful, beautiful, multitalented most awesomest Pharrell anounced that the video for the song Happy is out, and it made my morning. Made me want to throw my damn laptop through the window, diss all my weekend plans just to go out and dance on the streets for days and days to come. The song is originally from the soundtrack for the movie Despicable me 2 and the music video was released with the concept and website 24hoursofhappy.com where you can see Pharrell and other lovely happy people dance to the song during any and all of the hours of the day.
By the way, the lyric ”Clap along if you feel like a room without a roof”. Imagine the freedom of that little room thats been confined it’s entire life and to one day get to feel a cool breeze swipe through the entire space, look up at the light blue skies, hear birds chirp, feel the sun caress it’s surfacy face :D. So simple, so cute.
Love this dude. If I had a hat, I’d take it of. ♥
Just got of the phone with one of my clients. One of the great perks in working with design is the relations you build with people. They need a service that you’re able to provide. A good work relation is where you as a designer listen to what they want, understand what they need and where the client also is greatful and understanding for the work you put in. That mutual respect is what makes a good project nice to work with, and probably ends up with the best results too.
Unfortunately I havent been able to write much about what I’m actually working on right now, since alot is confidential but today Im focusing on an app that is mostly illustrational. Most of the work however goes to figuring out the funtionality and flow, working on the interface and tweaking what has been done. I have a few old projects that’ve been sidelined for a while now too, need to look in to those and get them sorted out.. mmm. Work time!
And no, I’m not talking about the web, I’m talking about the group! The Internet is a duo consisting of Odd Future members Syd da kid and Matt Martians, with an awesome style of electronica, mixed with hip hop beats, topped with beautifull RnB-ish song and with a bit of funk. Their first album came out in 2011 and their latest in September 2013.
I’m pretty amazed by this girl Syd tha kid, (Real name Sydney Bennet). At only 21 years of age (born 1992) she’s one of the main producers in Odd future, a singstress, producer and DJ.
Besides the fact that she has suuch a beautiful voice, I also love that she dresses and looks so casually boyish and that she works in such a boyish ambience/group/industry. Now this will probably turn into a post of its own later on but I’m SO tired of all female singers dropping their clothes for videos and performances. It just annoys me when grown women with great awesome increadible talent still create their images around their appearance and sexuality. It’s so unessesary, they definately loose my respect. And yes, I’ll have to turn this into a post of it’s own as Im getting angry just writing about it :D.
Have a great day ♥
When I was teeny tiny I had this little boy in my class that I had a crush on. He was actually once my ”boyfriend” for 24 hours :D, shortest relationship ever. Anyhow, he used to taunt me with a little song going ” En katt som går på liina, heter Cataliiiina” and I would get furious (?). Nothing made sense back then. Translated it means ” A cat who walks a line is named Cat-a-line(a).
You know when you’re so sick your skeleton hurts? Yeah, thats me. But It’s been a good day. Got some work done, got some invoices sent and I got a little set of stickers for free from stickers.se. Anyone can order a little free test-set from their site. I’m looking into buying some for a project of mine and this set really comes in handy. Theres different weights, textures and effects. A great little insight in knowing the options that are out there. If anyone has any advice on cheap stickerprinters that ship within europe, I’d love to hear it :).
This last weekend was spent out in Knivsta at my friend Hannes place where she welcomed me with dinner, all set and done. Lovely start on the weekend. She also had a music organ i got to play on a little and since she works with horses part time we got to hang out with them a while. Gorgeous animals. Muscle beasts! I also got to meet the cat fluffy, who lived up to his name. And oh! Hanne has a guestbook she always lets her friends write in, I ended up covering a whole page with what became a little illustrated story. Im thinking of getting a guestbook of my own. It would be fun to look back att peoples doodles and messages.
Oh well. Now I’ll go back to being sick. I have this cold thats got my entire body aching. Trying to stay warm and hydrated. >_<
Last week a friend of mine had an awesome idea of organizing a little breakfast club, where she gatheredd a few of her friends to have a meeting every two weeks for a little breakfast meeting at a cafe somewhere in Stockholm. The idea was to help eachother and support one another in our goals and works. How awesome is that? Strategizing and planning out ideas is one of my favorite things to do and on top of that I just love people with ambition.
So the pretty businesscards above are,;
Aether, a clothingbrand founded by one of the girls that you’ll probably be hearing about alot now during Sthlm Fashion weeks these upcoming months.
Esias, The café, on drottninggatan.
I’ll head out and buy some type of folder one of these days so I can file all of these businesscards. I just like being able to feel the different paper qualities, weight, size, texture. Stuff you cant feel just finding inspiration on the web.
