I am soooo happy that I could participate in this project. Bri Emery, an amazing blogger&graphic designer, asked me a week or two ago to design something summerish, colorful and quirky for desktop downloads.
This is how I created the "ananas rain" desktop. First of all I love pineapples! Not only the taste but also the fruit itself, its shape and color outside and inside. That's why I thought that they would be a perfect subject here. Then I decided to spice up them a little bit by adding some bold colors and my fave patterns (polka dot and stripes!). And... that's all! I've always believed that the best recipe for a nice design is the rule "the simpler the better".
You can download "ananas rain" for you desktop through desinglovefest. Enjoy!
Two weeks ago I promised you (and myself as well) to post more about my work & process and voila!
I couldn't have said "no" to this lovely project! One of my friends in Sweden asked me to design an invitation for a cozy grill party. It's been a wonderful Spring here in Stockholm so I decided to use a fresh color palette including minty green I've been recently crazy about. I made a simple&modern illustration and didn't forget about a very helpful detail: a map:) My do it yourself spirit motivated me to craft 15 envelopes (yes! from scratch!) and envelope liner. For the second one I chose black&white chevron. And the final touch was the packing of the lil suite: a pinkish paper belly band and my customized "thank you" stamp.
The whole project was such a good break activity since I spend a lot of time in front of my screen. Thank you Ira to give me the opportunity to work on this!
Johanna Lundberg & Elin Svensson are two Swedish designers working together as Åh-studio. Caged Birds is their personal project based on the saying "Caged birds sing, wild birds fly". It was screen printed as A1 double sided poster. Well, all I can say is that I really feel now like starting something self-initiated. Good job!
Hello Monday! I will never get tired of the mid-century graphic design. These old Polish album covers from 60s have inspired me for the rest of the week!

I came across these pictures today and can't stop looking at them. It's my inspiration of the week thank to Ina Jang, a super talented photographer from South Korea currently based in NYC. I love the most the way how she plays with the colors...
Happy Stüdio makes happy everyone who loves simple&modern design. Aren't these illustrations gorgeous? If you like them as much as I do (or even more) you should know that they are available as fine prints, iphone cases, pillows and more. Which one is your fave? Check the whole series here.
I am soooo sorry for not being here for such a long time. It's happening a lot in my life now. There is a lot of work (which I am super happy about) and a lot of things to plan too. Anyway I almost missed the fact that it's been like one year since I launched this blog! It was May 8th when I created my first post ever. I remember all those feelings like stress and happiness in the same time and... a glas of bubbling champagne:) I had no idea how everything would go to be honest. "Who is gonna read my blog?!" I asked myself but then I thought that the most important thing was to believe in myself and in everything I love doing the most.
After one year experience I realized that I would like to change my blog a little bit. I haven't been writing too much about my work and the process and actually this is what I would like to change. First I have to learn that too:)
I wanna say THANK YOU to everyone who reads my blog. Thank you for your time and support.
Thank you hun for being the best webmaster ever, love you!
You must know that I am a big fan of Caroline Polachek because it's not the first time when I create a post about her or Charlift. Last week I discovered a new project of Caroline. It's an exclusive original music creation by a French composer Sébastien Tellier and the leading lady from Charlift. You can enjoy Side by Side here.

I love LOVE old Polish film posters. This one I found today and it makes me feel like working more with typography. Btw you need inspirations? Just google "old movie poster" and better be ready to spend a while in front of your computer. The poser above was designed by Bronisław Zelek.
