A Side Project | Shelley Steer x Louise Jones

Shelley Steer and Louise Jones make good use of their time. Their aptly titled side project, otherwise known as, A Side Project, is collected into a beautifully themed site of inspirational imagery and developmental work. Each month the duo select a topic, pulling visuals from fashion, nature, and art, from which they base their print designs. Past themes include line work, tropical, or cacti. For July, the pair explores a woodland direction. Any guesses on what might be chosen for this current month?

Using only raw, vegan ingredients – artist Stephen McCarty creates mouthwatering, edible art! Unlike works of art that hang in galleries for centuries, these gorgeous creations are meant to be devoured days after they are made, thus helping to illustrate the fleeting nature of life. The dyes used for the intricate designs on McCarty’s cakes are created from natural plant and fruit extracts. Check out McCarty’s dessert company, Sukhavati Raw Desserts, and follow him on Instagram for a daily dose of these edible beauties.

Dazzle Camouflage consists of patterns of geometric shapes in contrasting colors. It intends to mislead the eye as to an objects exact location.

Created by artist Norman Wilkinson, the technique was used on many ships during WWI as a way to optically confuse the enemy.

The ship’s graphic pattern inspired artist Edward Wadsworth‘s work in 1919.

Steve frykholm Herman Miller Picnic Posters 1 590x332 Steve Frykholm for Herman Miller

 

via here

From Dresscode:  In 1970, a young Steve Frykholm arrived at the legendary Herman Miller Furniture Company, where Charles and Ray Eames, Alexander Girard and George Nelson built their reputations and created the canon of modern furniture design. It wasn’t long before Steve began making waves of his own with a series of screen printed posters for the annual company picnic. Considered modern design classics, Steve’s Picnic Posters are in the permanent collections of museums all over the world, including the Museum of Modern Art.

The Picnic Posters offers a rare glimpse into Steve’s meticulous archives unearthing sketches and stories over 40 years old, alongside a visit to reprint his first picnic poster from 1970.

Pattern Nostrum

Have you seen the work of Tuscan based design studio, Pattern Nostrum? Derived from the digitalization of paintings, the Harmonic Surface Collection is a kaleidoscope of colors and psychedelic detail. Each painting generated thirty-six unique designs which can be applied to a myriad of surfaces. We love the matching shirt and book cover, but especially enjoy the urban art attack on the exterior door. Discovering something like this on a casual stroll would make any pattern designer’s day.
