Hello Monday! You must have noticed my post on FB last week regarding the Bri Emery's Stockholm guide and the map illustration I made for her. But for everyone who is not so facebookish I decided to post the map here on my blog since I've promised you a few months back that I would write more about what happens when studio is on fire. This project was FUN not only because I love working with Bri but also because Stockholm is where I live now. Check Bri's guide if you haven't so far and don't hesitate to visit Stockholm!
I love the look book with a new collection of temporary tattoos from Tattyoo! You can grab them here. Btw you remember my tattoo designed for them? I know it's not the best time for eating popsicles or ice-creams BUT you shouldn't resist having them on your skin as a tattoo right?
Hello Monday! What's new is studio? Well, there is a lot happening here recently so I will be posting soon more new stuff (both illustration & graphic design). Above you can see a series of illustrations I created for Papertheque, a small paper label from Poland. The big cake is my fave! Especially the cute cherry on the top.
I was introduced to Lilla Bruket thanks to Blogshop in Stockholm since they were one of the wonderful sponsors who helped to fill the goodie bags. Lilla Bruket produces hand made cosmetics like soaps or spa products (body scrubs, baths, oils and more) in Varberg in Sweden. Everything is organic and made of raw materials and... really well packed! When I saw this little jar with a beautiful simple black & white label I knew that I would love it. Now feel like getting something else from their online shop. Yes, yes, they ship international as well:)
I am back! Sorry for being absent for soooo many days but seriously last week or I would say last 10 days were crazy busy here. So what was happening? Here is a list with a selection of a few events / experiences that are definitely worth to be mentioned:
1 / Blogshop in Stockholm! It was such fun to help Bri & Angela with their amazing class for bloggers and anyone who wanted to improve PS skills. I spent two amazing days with lovely creatives. My Stockholm friend Kristina was there too, yay! Follow Bri Emery's blog to see more images soon.
2 / Umeå adventure. I could see & explore a small part of the North of Sweden thanks to my better half (I love you hun!). The good thing is that it wasn't so cold as I expected and all I can say is that you should visit Umeå if you are design freak. You are gonna love Bildmuseet, a center for contemporary art and visual culture. I was obsessed with Jacob Hashimoto's installations. Truly amazing!
3 / more facts about Bildmusset: free admition (yes!) will let you save a few pennies that you can spend either in their cozy café or museum shop. Just stop by and treat yourself with a cup of coffee and quirky postcards. I got there a little DIY mobile, but believe me, I wanted much more!
4 / Rosendals Trädgård in Stockholm. I've been living here for like 1 year and a half and how I didn't know about this place before? No idea. Thanks to Kristina I know where I'm gonna go for a lunch with my better half or with friends when they visit me. Bri and I were just speechless and couldn't stop taking pics. Btw wait until she posts on her blog about this place. Then you will understand and feel like coming here only to see Rosendals Trädgård. They serve organic bread and pastry!
5 / ok, so is it October now? Really? On Monday I was wearing my Winter jacket, can you believe that? Anyway after the very busy last 10 days I feel like jumping under my fluffy blanket with a cup of a hot tea. Time to relax. But don't worry, I will be back here very soon with a new post:) I can't wait to tell you about one exciting project I will be working on this month so stay tuned!
ps. remember that you also follow me & my adventures on my instagram!
So it's official, Autumn is here. I should be sad or at last feel down since the end of September makes me think about cold days, wind, rain and lack of sun. It doesn't sound optimistic at all, I know. But these beautiful images I found today via this blog remind me that Autumns can be a cozy season too. I can't wait to cook a spicy pumpkin soup!

I am a BIG fan of the two talented girls from Darling Clementine. Their products are so charming! Yesterday I got a newsletter from DC about their new collection Ikonik (cute name, isn't?) which is full of lovely stationery but not only. For the first time DC presents textile treats like make-up & wash bags, such a great idea for for everyone who seeks for stylish stuff. All products are available for pre-order in DC webshop (here!) and ready to send in October.
SNASK, a brand, design & film agency based in Stockholm never disappoints. I am a big fan of their work, especially if it's about graphic identities. The one they made for energy saving campaign for Swedish Association of Public Housing Companies is currently my fave, I love the color palette!
