Right now summer feels very far away but I guess some of you on the northern hemisphere are planning winter vacations. And for you who are planning to go to a warm and nice place remember to use sunscreen when you hit the beach. Why not try Glacier Creme Naked Protection 30+ SPF?

The formula is fortified with tea and sunflower extracts with added plankton, vitamin E and shea butter, a combination of powerful antioxidants that help protect against ongoing sun damage.

Dix Neuf 20

Dix Neuf 20

Han Kjøbenhavn is to me mainly a company that makes cool glasses but they also dabble in fashion and accessories. For the coming spring they are releasing a line of shirts under the name Dix Neuf 20. All shirts in the collection have undergone an extensive wash process to give them the perfect vintage look and the motif gets its inspiration from classic French posters. Dix Neuf 20 will only be sold in select shops around the world so keep your fingers crossed that you live close to one of them.

Inside the sketchbook of a designer

Inside the sketchbook of a designer

As a designer I find it incredible inspiring to see how other creative minds work. So it almost feels like the book Graphic by Steven Heller and Lita Talarico was made for me. The book contains some 100 of the world’s leading graphic designers (including creative minds as Stefan Sagmeister, Sara Fanelli, and Art Spiegelman) who have all open up their private sketchbooks to chart their creative process. Christmas present of the year for your designer friend(s)?

Mythologic carpets from Ege

Mythologic carpets from Ege

Dark Water is a series beautiful and scary carpet from Danish Ege, designed by Russian artist and designer Kirill Rozhkov. Ege’s brief to Rozhkov was simple and straight forward: “Create your own carpet collection. No limitations.” I wish more companies dared to do as Ege and trust their designers fully, because I believe that the results from such a trust is more creative and it is sure to surprise you, in a good way.

Jämtland based dairy producer Milko have gotten a package makeover with the help of United Power. The combination of folk art inspired patterns and Bodoni as new house font is very successful and gives the packages a almost 1960’s feel.
