Camila Gutiérrez


Lifestyle and commercial photographer Camila Gutiérrez‘s stills are flat-out dreamy. The muted pastel tones she seems to favor either lean towards golden hour vibes or a rainy day mood, two of my personal favorites. Don’t you just want to jump into one of her photos and explore?








Karin Miller


Cape Town-based Karin Miller‘s collages showcase inspiration from Medieval tapestries, the dichotomies of beauty and tragedy, and dinner table taboos. She uses her work to speak about social, political, and historical issues, but that’s not to say Miller’s work is without humor – you just have to know where to look.

“I love the fact that I can take items out of context and place them wherever I want, because life is a collaboration of different points of view; and I get nervous when people start believing things only from one side, their side.”







Lisa Courtney


Massachusetts-based painter Lisa Courtney considers herself an abstract expressionist, meaning her interpretations include things that are recognizable, placing her style somewhere between realism and abstractionism. The colorfully serene scenes she captures are directly from her surroundings – seaside cottages, sunsets, and more.

Kozmophone is an updated take on Thomas Edison’s phonograph with touches of from the past, present, and future in its design. The classic horn-style speaker remains, but rotates a full 360-degrees for uniform quality listening. The speaker can also be removed and used alone through any Bluetooth device. There’s even a holographic display inside the main cylinder and ambient lighting. Kozmophone is currently waiting for its fully-funded Kickstarter campaign to wrap up, so if you’re into it get in on the ground level.





Francesca Pasquali


Francesca Pasquali transforms plastic industrial materials into objects and installations that emulate natural shapes and structures that she’s observed. Her art includes everything from drinking straws to balloons to neoprene, and dozens more interesting materials in between. Be sure and have a look at Pasquali’s entire portfolio to see the extent for yourself!







Nicholas Rougeux


Chicago-based self-taught web developer and artist Nicholas Rougeux did something rather remarkable, he took the scores of classical composers and turned them into wonderfully colorful fractal images. In fact, he created the entire process and you can see the visuals take shape as each piece is played here.

Each dot represents a note in the score. Pitch is indicated by the distance from the center of the image, while the time at which the note occurs is given by the angle from the 12 o’clock position. The size of the dot indicates the duration of the note, and the color of the dot is different for each instrument.

Studio Iebis


Statement earrings go best with summer weather in my humble opinion, when they can stand out against a canvas of dewy (re: sweaty) skin. And Studio Iebis‘ owner Ieva Ancāne has her finger on the pulse of one big trend – handmade clay statement earrings. Which pair is your favorite? I’m leaning towards last pair below.
