Nod To A Blog–Patternity

In a search for something completely different Google in all its random genius led me to patternity.co.uk.

“SEEING PATTERN EVERYWHERE// MUNDANE TO THE MAGNIFICENT// INSPIRE INFORM IMPLEMENT ENJOY” (sites strap line)

In a few short minutes I was hooked. The blog is brilliant in its simplicity. It is a collection of images, some personal, some borrowed each depicting pattern. The subjects featured are vast and varying but each is held up to the same value and each recognised as beautiful.

So take my advice, if stuck for inspiration, get stuck into this blog. You will be sure to find something to motivate your creative side!

Nod To A Blog–Spoon & Tamago

Do you have a a series of blogs that you check daily? I certainly do and at the moment Spoon and Tamago is one of my favourites. The strap line of the site is ‘art, somewhere in between New York and Tokyo’ but what is included in the site ranges from technology, product design, fashion, art and architecture.

I find that often when I visit blogs I get a sense of déjà vu, much of the material I will have seen on other blogs but that isn’t the case with this site. I almost always find something new and exciting.

Below are a few links to some of my recent favourite articles. Enjoy!

Nod To A Blog – Swissmiss

Every so often I come across a Blog or website that I find inspiring and I am feeling generous so will pass on some details to you lovely people!

Swissmiss is a design studio and blog run by Tina Roth Eisenberg and is one of my favourite places to go on the web to find interesting designs that make me happy. The pieces are snappy and fun and the featured products and articles never fail to be quirky and entertaining. It is a website that doesn’t take itself too seriously and that is why I frequent it almost daily.

Below are a few links to my favourite articles of the past week. Enjoy!
