loving this idea! “the sketchbook project” involves showcasing thousands of sketchbooks at galleries and museums across the world. i think sketchbooks contain such a wealth of information. it’s always fascinating to see the beginnings of a project (read doodles!), the concept development, the person’s thought process…there’s really nothing more intimate than a sketchbook or ideas book. best part is, anyone can be part “the sketchbook project”. if you’re interested, find out the deets here.
gorgeous short films made by director gustav johansson to promote studying abroad with EF international language centers. each film has a different typographic style to best represent the vibe of the city its advertising. check out the rest of the videos here.
i have to admit i was skeptical when anya ayoung-chee turned up at project runway claiming she had learned to sew in just four months. but she’s won me over, not only due to the unusual clothes that she makes (patterns!) but also because of her own incredible sense of style. it takes balls to walk around with a half-shaved head! cassie did it for a bit and it looked pretty neat, but anya takes it to a whole different level. it’s also noteworthy that she’s making a promising career for herself after winning miss trinidad and tobago universe 2008 and putting the whole sex tape scandal behind her. i’m pretty excited to see where her career as a fashion designer takes her!
