Me and the rest of my year at university were asked by tigerprint the guys that make the Marks & Spencer's cards to design four greetings cards for their print on demand service (similar to moon pig) . They informed us they wanted fresh new ideas to aim at young women. I based my research on Soap and Glory Cosmetics packaging. Its amazing click here to look at it. This evolved into a very girly 1950s humor theme.
I must warn you writing jokes is not my strength and basically the idea is that all the text can be changed, for example, the receiver's name on the front of the card. Oh also these are not completely finished!
1920's themed shoot by Steven Miesel for Vouge US September 2007.
After watching the film, I have been meaning to post this shoot and unfortunately only just got round to it. Personally most of the photographs Anna Wintour cut from this spread were my favorites. but here's a few that made it.
Here are a selection of wonderful drawings from Dinsey artist Mary Blair. Mary Blair's concept designs where heavily used in many Walt Disney films, but to be honest her drawing style is much more interesting than the actual disney animation.
I love her so much I recently bought two copies of one of the childrens books she illustrated throughout the fifties and sixties called "I can fly". Its here on amazon.
My friend Erica thankfully told me about this amazing collaboration, John Galliano has created a stunning Christmas tree for the Claridge's hotel in London. Galliano's design is meant to be a frozen twist on the traditional Christmas tree. The frozen tropical tree contains a snow leopard, dragon flies and parrots. Unfortantly these images aren't the best quality but i found Galliano's design sketch which is quite amazing.
