Today I bring you the work of Compass Island, a full-service design agency located in Amsterdam. I really love their branding work, specifically Le Breakfast Club, which blends the right amount of quirky elegance. Enjoy!

Other than art books, and sentimental relics passed down to me from my family, I’m not a big collector of things. Except, I do have a thing for Christmas ornaments. My first Christmas in NYC, I decided to get a Christmas tree. It felt like a real statement- living my own life, in my own place, my new home needed a tree for the holidays. That year, I bought I bunch of cheap ornaments to fill up the tree. But, each year since then, I’ll usually buy one new ornament that has some sort of special significance to me, or speaks to an event that happened that year.
I came across a lovely collection of ornaments recently from Beads of Paradise NYC Etsy shop, and thought I’d share some of my favorites here- for all of you that love ornaments too.

I discovered the work of Sion Hsu via Pinterest, and was taken in by the detailed simplicity of his work. When I went on a search for more of his work, I was really touched by his own description, which states that he is devoted to redesigning rural culture, and as he describes, “Trying to show the world how beautiful his hometown is by non-stop designing. It is a declare that design in not just belong to the City. It should be everywhere.” Featured below are some of my favorites from his portfolio.

Today I bring inspiration by way of Karl James Mountford, a German illustrator who describes his work as, “‘visually edible’, sometimes witty, sometimes odd but always full of gusto.” I was particularly drawn to his book cover illustration, featured below. Enjoy!

What is there to say about Autumn? Only EVERYTHING as it’s my favorite season of the year. I love the colors, the leaves, the clothes, that crispness in the air, and that feeling that things are just beginning (still… even though I haven’t been in school in a long time). I’ve curated some of my favorite autumnal graphics below, from one of my favorite resources, Creative Market. Click on each image to shop and learn more.
