Could one create a smoothie to match every pantone color? That’s a question that art director Hedvig A Kushner has really taken to heart. In her project “Pantone Smoothies“, she sets out to see just how many pantone-swatch-inspired, delectable beverages are possible. Describing her project as a “delicious colour experiment” Kushner includes recipes for each smoothie, making it possible to create a pantone rainbow in your very own kitchen!

Loving the exuberance and humor of Simone Shubuck’s paintings and are stoked you can get one these as a poster for only $55! Also heard a little rumor that the poster hangs in the dressing room of the talented Ms. Lena Dunham.

The intense smell of the ink is still in the air. Your pencil has just softly touched the paper. Your work is not yet finished, it’s still in progress; that special moment right before your artwork is completed. You can already imagine your final design…it’s almost there!
This is a creative invitation to all textile designers to leave your work in an aesthetically unfinished, incomplete state. Your work in progress is the final result. You are encouraged to leave space in your artwork so it looks perfectly unfinished, even though it’s nearing completion. Your design can combine hand-drawn elements with illustrated details and color highlights. Combine digital elements with sketches. Mash up botanical layers with floral arrangements. Your random splash of color is the DNA that keeps the design interesting and enchanting.
This is a calling to all designers who have inspiring ideas for pattern design. The best designs submitted on jovoto will be chosen and presented to select international fashion brands by the client, who is a renowned textile supplier. In addition to winning up to €5,000 in community awards, a huge opportunity awaits, to be licensed by a large fashion brand. For every licensed design, you will be paid €100 for the initial design and an additional €0.20 in royalties for each meter if printed. The amount purchased can be up to 20,000 meters per design.

Recently stumbled on the gorgeous and edible Biscuit Project by the dynamic duo Matt Lain and Toni Caroline! Using a very streamlined color palette, photographer Lain and stylist Caroline, collaborated to bring us this visual treat. It’s impressive how simply altering the color of an everyday object like the biscuit can create such a work of art!
