The Ice Book

The Ice Book from Davy and Kristin McGuire on Vimeo.

Sorry for the lack of updates for the past month or two, but my mind has just been occupied with a lot of different things lately - but then I came across this beautiful little video and thought it was too amazing not to share with you. Love the simplicity yet great effect the projection makes on the cut-outs..
"The Ice Book is the story of a princess who lures a boy into the forest in order to warm her heart of ice.
The performance blends animation, puppetry, and film to bring a pop-up book vividly to life in front of the audience’s eyes. Check the website:"

In the mood for some personal inspiration..

This is not a normal post from my side, but I want to share anyways... Having started up on my own and at the same time trying to figure out what it is that I really wish and want for myself, both in the short run as well as in the long, I'm reading a lot of books and articles on self development and find myself really receptive. Today I came across this 6-year old speech by Steve Jobs, and what I really find inspiring in this particular talk is his use of death as a motivator... I've always felt the same way and have really tried to measure up my decisions in life with the fact that if I should die tomorrow, I want to live my life to the fullest today... but somehow I seem to get just as surprised and overwhelmed everytime I'm reminded...
So here it is - if you should have something that inspires you, being and article, interview or video, please feel free to share, I would love that! :)

Even though you should take care when using free fonts and as a rule only use them for healine-stuff - just in case - I thought I'd give you this link to some free fonts that I came across... Below are some of the fonts that I like...

Hip Shops inspiration

Yesterday I came across this cool site - Hip Shops - and thought I'd share it with you.. If you like interior design and especially interior for shops, I've haven't been across any site with as much inspiration as this one with inspiring categories from some of the big cities around the world - but maybe you know one that I should get familiar with??
Anyways, go check it out here : HIPSHOPS

Working on my portfolio

Today I'm working on my portfolio. I'm finding old stuff and trying to style different settings with some of the stuff I've made through the years... Can't wait to show you some of the pictures and finally introduce to you some of the things I do! Sadly I won't be able to show that much due to restrictions from my past work, but I'm good for a project or two besides that! ;) Have a nice day!

Stella Magazine

Some months ago I came across a new womens magazine called Stella and bought their 2nd edition (left) and today I bought their 3rd edition (right) and I'm not disapointed! I'm a huge sucker for magazines in general, but this one really stand out. A really lovely and inspiring magazine and I really adore the whole look and art direction... Read more about Stella magazine HERE.

TOPSHOP & VOGUE invite by Shaz Madani

I really like the invite for Topshop & Vogue's SS09 trend previews, where patterns from the collections are being used in the visual expression, and I like it even more because they are so different but still kinda match... Made by Shaz Madani, via

I create collages...

Sometimes I make collages with scissors and glue, both to make something different from what I do on a daily basis but I've also realized that it's a great way to "escape" and sometimes feels quite meditative, and since I've had an obsession with magazines for (at least) the past 10 years, I have a lot to choose from! Yesterday I started on a new one but haven't quite figured out how to put it together, but I think that I've found a lovely colorscheme, and can't wait to finish it! Below is a picture of the latest I'm working on – tomorrow I'll show you some of the one's I've made earlier on!

NEW HEADER! - new beginning?

Today I've decided to replace my header through the last couple of years, with a new one...
What do you think??
For a long time I've been really happy with my blog, but also kind of felt that it's been missing something... and I've figured out that it's missing more of ME and what I do... So the new header is also an expression of the blog taking a new turn with more personal lifestyle stuff – but design still being the main focus! Hope you'll keep following:)
