In keeping with my marble love, today I’m sharing a beautiful identity designed by Corina Nika, aka Cocorrina. The vision behind the design was to create an ethnic / Moroccan vibe the brand has in their jewelry in a modern and clean way.

I’ve always been drawn to marble. I love it because it is both a texture and an oft-designed pattern. It is a natural pattern, found in the rock, and then it is a beautiful artistic practice of creating these loose, free-form feeling patterns. I’ve rounded up my top ten marble patterns, which can be found for sale on Creative Market. Click on each image to learn more.

Unfortunately, this is not a travelogue of my own, but a series of incredible photographs I discovered via Pinterest of an all-blue town in Morocco called Chefchaouen. I love learning about fascinating, beautiful places in the world that I’ve never heard of, and this is no exception. It has now been added to the wanderlust list.

On my hunt for vintage mermaid images on Pinterest one day, I came across this great vintage poster, which then led me to this real treasure trove of a blog called Quad Royal- which specializes in vintage posters from the 1940’s, ’50’s, and ’60’s. In a sort of summery, beach-y, mermaid-y mood with my selections below.Enjoy!

Palefroi is a graphic design, illustration and screen print studio run by Damien Tran and Marion Jdanoff, located in Berlin. Elements in their work that resonate with me right now are the hints of Memphis Style and illustrative styling that reminds me of a Basquiat painting. Featured below are some of my favorites from their site. Be sure to check out their work in it’s entirety here.
