Boris Pelcer


Beyond having a wonderful name, Boris Pelcer is very talented and I adore his self-promoting business cards. Wish I’d a) thought of that and b) had the time and patience to create something so thoroughly detailed and beautiful for our own studio…

Just thought I’d share with you some of the very creative, quirky and clever websites I’ve stumbled across over the past week or so. The last one was pointed out to us by our client, copywriter Siobhan Doran. Thanks, Siobhan!
Emma Leonard

Emma Leonard




Emma Leonard is a very clever person indeed. She’s based in Melbourne and you can buy her intriguing illustrations printed on heavy-weight cotton rag paper here.

Sebastian Lester

Sebastian Lester

Another clever typographer. Sebastian Lester is based in the UK and specialises in creating fancy type for a range of different companies and their projects and promotions. His website is worth a look at, because he not only has a great portfolio, he uploads images of ‘found type’ he collected along the way.

A mini MINI

A mini MINI

Gotta love some extreme depth of field, and photographs taken with a macro lens. Here’s one shot by Aaron Anderson – and it’s not any of the fancy tilt-shift stuff making something look miniature when it’s not (or the Photoshop cheat’s method of doing the same thing)… this is the real deal.

Craft’s not dead

Craft’s not dead



Canadian-born Brooklyn illustrator and artist Jillian Tamaki has just finished this adorable suite of book cover designs for three of my favourite Penguin Classics. Long live craft.

Sweets Workshop Summer Hill

Sweets Workshop Summer Hill

You know, I do love living in Sydney’s Inner West. Besides the outstanding handmade noodles in Ashfield and the quirky, gritty, character-filled pubs in Newtown… every so often there’s a store which opens in an unlikely place selling interesting, beautiful and unlikely things. The Sweets Workshop opened in July last year and holds an indeed sweet collection of homewares and artworks, made by desingers Australia wide. Featured illustrators, jewellers and crafters include Emma Jane, Allira Tee, Genna Campton, Anna Nakalevu and Zoe Churchill.
Back to the Future

Back to the Future




Irina Werning has turned her obsession for vintage photographs into an amazing series of portraits. By getting her friends and family to re-enact childhood photographs, with immense attention to detail, we are left with a series of incredible and hilarious images.

“I love old photos. I admit being a nosey photographer. As soon as I step into someone else’s house, I start sniffing for them. Most of us are fascinated by their retro look but to me, it’s imagining how people would feel and look like if they were to reenact them today”

Check out the entire set of portraits here.
Diem Chau

Diem Chau

Diem Chau is a Vietnamese-born American artist whose amazingly intricate work combines common, art-and-craft materials and objects to create nostalgic, delicate pieces. Have a look through her online gallery here.
Hennie Haworth

Hennie Haworth



Just delightful. Hennie Haworth has nailed the ability to allow her imagination to run wild and free. Check out more of this very talented illustrator’s work at www.henniehaworth.co.uk
