Dennis Adelmann

I was surprised to discover Dennis Adelmann isn’t the creator of the Ikea Fika cookbook visuals, but nonetheless, these compositions still satisfy the OCD designer-foodie in me.

Do things the long, hard, stupid way

Her idea by Rilla Alexander


Sozi loves ideas. The only trouble is, she can’t seem to ever finish them.

Christiana Couceiro

Lisbon collage artist Christina Couciero. They’re all so lovely that it’s hard to pick a favourite.
Thanks, JJ!

I can never get enough of book porn.

The joy of books

Kudos to Sean Ohlenkamp, his wife and Type for celebrating “the book”.

V is for Val

A cheese-eating, bike-riding Canadian, now living in Amsterdam. Loves great design but creeped out by ballpoint pens. Alternate dream jobs include animals and cooking, but not cooking animals. Personal mantra gifted from an expert on the subject: Fortune favours the brave.

A is for Ali

Design hybrid by day. After hours she shoots film with toy cameras, sew clothes from books with Japanese instructions that she barely understands and hangs out with her husband, two beautiful girls and three crazy dogs. Personal mantra is "Don't worry, everything is going to be amazing". And for the most, it is.
