Alissa Bell Stationery

 

I think we can all agree that beautiful, everyday objects have a way of elevating life. Alissa Bell‘s impeccably designed minimalist modern line of notebooks and stationery embody this mindset completely in the Essentialist Collection. Elegant, clean, and simple, you’ll be sending snail mail and reaching for a notebook rather than your phone to take notes in no time. (She also does custom orders!)

Barbara Dziadosz

 

Barbara Dziadosz is a freelancing illustrator from Hamburg, Germany who specializes in printmaking, editorial, illustrated recipes, and character design. Two subjects she returns to again and again are eloquently posed hands holding various flora and different species of insects, both captured in a flat 2D style that I’m partial to. (And that snake? Yeah, I’d love it tattooed on my ribcage.)

Fragmento Universo

 

Madrid-based designers Tessa Dóniga and Christian Baumgartner – AKA Fragmento Universo – are a creative team that doesn’t limit themselves to any one medium. They work on film, music, and art projects for their clients, usually combining design, art direction, and sound that result in aesthetic concepts that are often lo-fi in nature. What I notice, more than anything else in their work, is the innate sense of balance each campaign offers.

Emily Filler

 

Late spring comes in second only to autumn as a favorite time of year, and Emily Filler‘s paintings and mixed media art drops me smack-dab in the middle of a spring garden. Paint on paper, silkscreening, and paper collage all work together to create some magic chemistry that feels just right for early June.

Shawna Gilmore

 

Hailing from the upper midwest, artist Shawna Gilmore finds inspiration in her overactive imagination. Her vintage-infused paintings are full of narrative, exploring topics like childhood, animals, nature, patterns, humor, metaphors, space, paradoxes, and fairytales.

Nelio

 

I see plenty of graffiti on a regular basis, but it’s nothing like this! French street artist Nelio creates what I’d call abstract murals, ones that I’d happily have on the entire exterior of my home.

Laura Plageman

 

Laura Plageman is an Oakland, California-based artist and educator whose distorted photos explore the relationships between the process of image making, photographic truth, and the representation of landscape. Her artwork examines the natural world as a scene of mystery, beauty, and constant change that’s transformed both by humans as well as its own design.
