I didn’t think that Melbourne could get any cooler than it already is, but the release of AÃRK Collective this week has proven me wrong. Melbourne, you are just fit to burst with so many talented folk! I can’t keep up!
There are a couple of things I like about these watches. Number one is that they remind me of a beautiful classic watch my dad bought from Japan when he was my age. My sister wore that watch for months even after it was broken beyond repair. Secondly, they have rad names like “Yolk” and “White Peach”. Thirdly, that website – and all their design, in fact – is just one of those oh-man-I-wish-I’d-designed-that kind of moments.
Plus they do free shipping for us here in Australia. And it does not get any better than that.
Boots & Pine is my love poem to Toronto and the creative, interesting people who populate its diverse neighbourhoods.
I haven’t shared anything too personal about my day-to-day life here on the blog, but if you don’t mind too much, today I’d like to show you something that has been consuming my brain since early July – and just launched today.
A lovely girl called Alyce came to me, explaining the concept behind The Daily Edited. Part one is an online shop full of beautiful – and affordable – clothes for the working girl’s wardrobe. Part two is blog to visit when you’ve got a couple of spare moments at work, a space to showcase lifestyle, fashion, and food tips. And I was asked to come on as the designer.
(Quick sidenote – even though I’ve been working in this industry for a little over a year now, introducing myself to people as a graphic designer still thrills me no end. I am so lucky I get to do what I love every day, and call it work.)
It’s been the most incredible (and, to be honest, terrifying) experience. I got my hands dirty with the logo, the website, and lots of related collateral. It’s been such a fun ride, and I am so excited to be able to show it to you today. I hope you get the chance to visit soon.
