Captain & The Cook

I’ve recently finished a two month project, working on the redesign of a major hairdressing website. It’s been a great project, working with gorgeous imagery and a very creative client. At the beginning of the project myself and a colleague spoke to a selection of hairdressers to better understand their industry and asked them where they go to be inspired? It was at this point that I heard the name Angelo Seminara for the first time. After a quick google search, I could easily understand why his name was mentioned. Angelo’s work goes beyond conventional hairdressing, transcending any normal limitations and expectations of his industry.

Angelo is appropriately represented by Streeters, who manage the best of the best in the world of hairdressing, make-up, styling, set design and photography, which is no wonder considering he was nominated for the Best Hairdresser Of The Year 2014 awards.

The Runners

The Runners is a short film by Matan Rochlitz & Ivo Gormley, who spend a year following and interviewing runners around Victoria Park, London.

A friend sent me the link hoping that the two of us might appear in the background at some point. We don’t, but never-the-less the film is a beautiful reflection of the lives of those who visit the park and the seasons it has to embrace. If you’ve ever visited the park, I’m sure you’ll love watching this short.

Alex MacLean

Alex MacLean is fine art aerial photographer, who soars the earth shooting remote and abstract landscapes. His body of work contain a spectacular ensemble of texture, colour, shape and pattern all  formed from a diverse range of man made and natural objects. I personally love the deserting collection, as shown in the final image above.

Paul Newman

Paul Newman hailed from Cleveland, Ohio and lived between 1925 – 2008. Known for his family values, he lived a life of great success as a famous Hollywood actor and director, as well as becoming an entrepreneur (think ‘ranch dressing’), professional race car driver, philanthropist and of course one of the greatest style icons of his and our time.

Whether dressed up for an occasion or nonchalantly reclining on a bed, one can’t help but feel a little awed by his manner and effortless grace.

I’m not willing to let summer go. Not yet. I’m just not. No.

It’s starting though isn’t it, can you feel it fellow Northern Hemisphere dwellers? A little bit darker in the morning, a few more grey days hanging about. I’ve started receiving promotional emails filled with full shoes and ankle boots. Titled ‘top 5 coats’ of the season. I feel acutely aware of strangers sneezing around me – the beginning of the trans-season sniffles. No. No. No.

Not today. Today I’m listening to Luna by Bombay Bicycle Club – summer in my ears. Oh yes!

I’ve had So Long, See You Soon on repeat the last few weeks actually, I’m especially enjoying the slick backing vocals from Rae Morris on a few tracks. Best enjoyed while consuming tropical fruit.

Xhxix

I present you with the intriguing and melancholic work of elusive artist Xhxix. Hailing from Japan, he claims to be nothing more than an ‘ordinary and dull human‘ preferring to remain anonymous.

It was so sad to hear about the recent passing of Massimo Vignelli. I’ve been watching this video on repeat all week – such an inspiring couple.

Fideli Sundqvist

I’ve been designing a new stage set for an upcoming award ceremony in London and I have gone a bit paper-prop mad, it’s going to be wonderful (I hope). That’s how I discovered this beautiful paper art and prop design from Swedish Fideli Sundqvist. Her work is just lovely, especially this series for Papier Mache, a lovely online childrens magazine.
