Im off to Poland to visit my family and my dear friends:) Weeeeeeee! The illustration above was made by me exactly last year for Winter Papertheque collection.
I designed & illustrated these posters for Squeezed Up, the coolest juice bar in Stockholm, in December short before my trip to Australia. Since I’m still freelancing for them and working currently on more illustrations (yes yes, stay tuned!) I thought that I had to post these ones first. Btw did I tell you that I LOVE to illustrate food?
I started this morning with random experiments. You remember this wrap party project by Bri Emery & other creative girls from Los Angeles? I created for this lil event four illustrations that have been used as printable gift tags (btw still to download here!). Today I randomly went back to the wrap party project and this is what I created. Just to have fun and play with colours a little bit. I realised that I haven’t been using much blue, time for change and... a little bit of love too. Talk about love, stay tuned to see more LOVE illustrations this week!
Happy Friday everyone! Above an another little sneak peek of a super fun project I am recently working on. Can’t wait to show you more! In meanwhile take care & have a peaceful weekend.
Meet Meagan Cignoli, a super talented photographer based in NYC. I discovered M.C. randomly through instagram and got obsessed with her stop motion videos. Meagan has worked as full-time Viner for brands like BMW, eBay, Puma or Benefit cosmetics and many more. Watch Meagan’s videos here or on her instagram, to visit her official website click here. I love Meagan! How about you??

Hello Monday & good morning. I thought I would share with you something I am currently working on. More soon:) Have a good week!
...and I will tell you who you are. Probably I am not the only one who is addicted to Freunde von Freunden website. Sometimes I spend there much too much time, for example today. The only excuse is my "it is almost weekend" mood but the truth is that I love "inspecting" places of creatives around the world and reading their stories. Links to the rest of pictures and interviews below.
Still looking back a little bit back at 2013 and going through my old files and what I found today is this small personal project. I was inspired by Emma Robertson’s & Eva Black's great column Top-Notch Type where they pick free fonts and show them being used. I was a big fan of TNT and discovered many great (and free!) fonts I’ve been using for my projects. Last year I was very much into retro type (a little bit too much maybe) and after I found Reswysokr on my own I thought that I would play with it a little bit. I love old 50’s and 60’s Polish movies so I designed a poster for Do widzenia do jutra using Reswysokr font and French since the images remind me of La Nouvelle Vague and Godard’s movies.
You can download Reswysokr for free here.

Ok, so this is my first post in 2014 and a little reflection over the past year that was full of exciting projects. It is not so easy to pick a few and call them “my fave” since every single one has brought on something special (yes, believe me that it has). Comparing to 2012 that was a quite taught time in my career, 2013 showed me that “impossible” does not exist and seriously ANYTHING is possible and achievable if you only keep trying, if don’t give up and strongly believe in your dreams. Sounds cheesy to you? Well, so it did to me a few years back and here I am writing these words and sharing them with you.
I feel very blessed that I got the opportunity to work with so many amazing people, mostly with Bri Emery who is such a talented art director and a wonderful person I spent a great time with here in Stockholm. Being a part of Blogshop team was an honour and FUN.
I am also very excited to have illustrated for Ban.do under Jen Gotch’s direction, an another super talented lady I really really love to work with.
My lovely friend Emilia helped me so so much with launching my own business here in Sweden. Oh my, what would I do without her help? Thanks to her I have also learnt to handle stressful situations that unfortunately are a big part of freelance business.
I have started to freelance for a Stockholm based juicy bar Squeezed Up. So much fun and it looks like much more is coming in 2014. Lucky me:)
Resolutions for 2014? Oh boy, there is a few however I prefer to call them goals. The most important thing for me is to remember that they all are achievable if I only work hard and… stay positive in hard times that may happen. And hey, then we learn the most, believe me.
Ok, I'm gonna be short and sweet here (as usual): I am thankful for everything that the last year has thought me. New experiences, a lot of lessons, new projects, new people, more readers (I love you guys!). Thank you all for your support my online & real life friends. Happy New Year 2014! Have a good and peaceful one.
