Breakfast with Ita

Breakfast with Ita


Here at Boheem we like a bit of Girl Power.


Bright and early this morning Ann and I and an army of 1000+ women gathered to hear stories, thoughts and inspirations from Ita Buttrose. We were invited along by Paula Parsons from Bright Wealth – a new client of ours (herself an inspiring business woman!)


Ita spoke about her experience being an ambitious, working mother in the publishing industry during the 1970’s. She has a passion for women’s culture and issues which continue to face women in the workforce. She spoke of the importance of empowering women to think differently about themselves and their roles in Australian society.


Ita was eloquent, down-to-earth and definitely inspiring. The advice I took away from this morning was – ‘Tough times never last, but tough people always do.’

Now here’s someone who’s really deeply passionate about his craft. How can I tell? He actually does stuff, rather than just talk about it – unlike me. Douglas Wilson from Springfield, Missouri and is a letterpress printer, Polaroid photographer and graphic designer. He’s been shooting a series of Polaroids (as in, the real things, not any Instagram/filter effects/ digital vintage here) – of old hand painted type. There are loads of shots on Flickr, but his website is here.

Brad Vetter you have my respect and admiration for sticking to your guns and developing and maintaining a unique, intriguing typographic style. Anyone who’s been sought out to design a little something special for an Anthropologie catalogue must have something good going on.

Flickr Find

Flickr Find


This prolific photographer from Bulgaria is a bit of an enigma. I can’t find any information about her, but her work is astounding. With a large collection of self portraits as well as other photos and paintings, she calls herself “Foxe” on Flickr, and her photostream can be viewed here.

One of the testimonials on her profile page best describes this talented artist and her intriguing work: “Foxeto is a beautiful girl with the soul of a poet; the maker of images haunting and unforgettable. I love her work so.”
100 Days of Typography

100 Days of Typography


Spanish designer Lucia Soto set herself the ultimate challenge when she set out to create 100 posters in 100 days using fonts that could be downloaded for free from the internet. I love some of the work she’s come up with and it’s interesting to see how each font has inspired the style of each poster. See all of her posters here

This is a self-initiated conceptual hand-drawn typography project by Norwegian designer and illustrator Mats Ottdal. I love the colours he’s chosen as much as everything else.

Brrr! It’s c-c-c-cold in Sydney at the moment. Ok, so maybe not nearly as icy as it becomes in other parts of the world… or even other parts of this country. But my 50% wool jacket just doesn’t seem to be cutting the mustard early in the morning when I leave for work! Check out these beautiful wintery shots by Oliver Nieder. His work has an eerie stillness to them which makes me feel a little uneasy but lured in at the same time.

Marise Maas

Maybe it’s the horses which make me love this artist’s work so much. Marise Maas lives and shows in Melbourne, and her paintings seem to hold a happy naivety which makes me wonder how she knows where to begin and when to end.
