Oh My Clumsy Heart is a gorgeous jewelry store that caters to my love for geometric shapes. It also sympathizes with my clumsy nature, apparently.

This photographer publishes 10 high-quality photos everyday that you are welcome to use for free. Excellent for creating websites and/or blog photos!

Those Things 010: Sanya Glisic

Today’s feature is someone I personally know: Sanya Glisic. She was my teacher for screenprinting and I absolutely adore her work (and of course, she was an excellent teacher at Spudnik Press). In addition to screenprinting, she also does linoleum block printing and illustration.

Sanya’s submission for the Blue Moon label competition:

These next few prints I’m obsessed with because of their geometric nature:

Those Things 008: Tom Pigeon

Created by Pete and Kristy Thomas, Tom Pigeon is a creative studio that makes minimalistic jewelry, stationary, and prints. As a big fan of simple geometric statements, this makes me want to jump into creating geometric screen prints, stat.

The fabric of this necklace (copper and formica) and their contrast is stunning:

Their abstract prints are also amazing. Below is “Harbour”:

“Sol Dawn”:

I’ve never heard of the wooden aquarelle coloring technique until now. Design Milk did a recent feature on Meike Harde’s wooden aquarelle pieces, which is absolutely stunning. Would love to have one of these mesmerizing, colorful pieces for my home.

Last week, I was designing a small infographic for my company and read a great article that infographics should have minimal colors, but multiple shades. Here is a great article for creating shades in Illustrator.

Let me know if you find any of these interesting or useful!

Somewhat bored? Play this silly little game called Shoot the Serif. You get to shoot, yup you guessed it, theserif.

On a more serious note – looking to brush up on your typography terminology? Look no further than this Fontroduction guide.

Wait, this is amazing. Modernized Korean han-bok outfits? I am so tempted to buy one as a proud Korean. Definitely worth checking out the article and the store itself

This is a fascinating interview with Amelie Mancini (featured recently in one of my Those Things posts). She discusses the difficulty of going wholesale and the decisions she’s had to make in the process of developing in her identity and her market.

love this website for selecting color palettes. The space bar feature makes it very convenient to scroll through color combinations, and you can “lock” color(s) in place so that they have to be part of the color palate generation. Super nifty.

What useful resources did you come across this week?

Those Things 005: Amelie Mancini

Am I super weird for being in love with these beautiful arrow spoons from Amelie Mancini? Is it almost too much of an obsession with arrows?

Well so be it. These are amazing.

Brass, copper, silver, you name it. There is something here for you to find.

Amelie Mancini is a French artist and designer living in Brooklyn, NY. She makes all of her work by hand in her studio, be it woodworking, printing on fabric or paper and painting. She privileges playfulness and creativity in her work and enjoys exploring a variety of mediums.

Just in case you were wondering, she creates numerous other goodies besides arrow themed eating utensils. And they are just as gorgeous.
