i’ve been looking forward to the launch of Our Paper Shop ever since Emma mentioned her and Bre‘s new collaborative online project on her blog. well, they’ve just launched this week – so go check out their shop (i love the paris postcards, naturally). they even have a beautifully photographed lookbook… these are not your average paper pushers.
Anett Hajdu’s accessories collection concept: in the chaos caused by contemporary and eclectic fashion trends, it is a pleasant feeling to turn toward to the style of puritanism what inspired by the nature and people costumes who are living with the nature. People and their everyday objects, animals and the atmosphere around the arctic circle provided a starting point for this design collection. Every single bag contains a unique individuality in hidden leather-jewels that helps us to perform as a part of the pure nature. These bags reveals the hidden animal from us. The packaging concept fits for the main design theory. The casing remind us for the meat industrial wrappings, the hunter accessories as well as a little Skandinavian sense.
and here’s the lookbook for the bags & headpieces from Annet’s website:

okay, it’s official, i have found my favourite website in the world. Simon Foster is a designer and former DJ who has rolled his love of design and music into the magically epic Decorated Playlists. i have already made my way through Run For Cover Part One and Part Two featuring cover songs 99% of which i didn’t even know existed. not only is the music selection superb (and highly educational) – the site is an absolute dream to use.
i briefly mentioned Melbourne based design company A Friend of Mine (quite literally) a few years ago when i was blabbing about how i like my coffee, and in the same breath how much i liked their identity design for a coffee bar in London called Milkbar . they are unsurprisingly still doing amazing design work – some of which i couldn’t resist sharing
i discovered The Elements of Happiness by designer Laura Javier via Things Organised Neatly (great tumblr, highly recommended) and spent the next while paging through the online copy. it is beautifully designed and, certainly, an incredibly interesting read.
The Harvard Study of Adult Development is the longest prospective study of mental and physical well-being ever conducted. For 72 years, researchers at Harvard have been following 824 individuals through war, career, marriage and divorce, parenthood and grandparenthood, and old age. In this book, I’ve taken 10 representative case studies and visualized their salient character traits, personal timeline, social supports, and physical health to draw conclusions about “the happy life.”
i love the detailing in the band members’ dresses – click on the image for a better view
