"Pij! — a traditional pottery for contemporary use. A self-initiated design & research project that explores the use of bukaleta, a traditional Croatian pottery jug from the regions of Kvarner & Istria. It is a contemporary adaptation of the traditional design."

They believe that good design produces effective and meaningful outcomes, adds value & inspires. That is why their approach is conceptual, focused on the process and based on close collaboration with their clients. They listen, ask questions and research, often challenging the brief in a search of the simple and practical solutions that are versatile and human. Equal competence across print and screen and their wide collaborative network enables them to handle both small and large scale projects that cover several creative disciplines. Agile and effective, small but ambitious, they are driven by rationality and devoted to delivering crafted, elegant & functional visual experiences with expressive bite.

Shop Hunting Tuesdays - 25/03/2014

The School of Life   |   http://theschooloflife.com/shop

The School of Life is devoted to developing emotional intelligence through the help of culture. We address such issues as how to find fulfilling work, how to master the art of relationships, how to understand one’s past, how to achieve calm and how better to understand, and where necessary change, the world.

The School of Life is a place to step back and think intelligently about central emotional concerns. You will never be cornered by dogma, but we will direct you towards a variety of ideas from the humanities – from philosophy to literature, psychology to the visual arts – ideas that will exercise, stimulate and expand your mind. You will meet other curious, sociable and open-minded people in an atmosphere of exploration and enjoyment.

Brave People   |   http://bravepeople.co

"We had the privilege of not only designing Porchside’s identity but also naming them. Capturing the warmth and nostalgia of drinking coffee and tea with family on the porch was our aim. Our illustrations pair traditional coffee imagery with a lighter, modern treatment."

We ask and listen toward a thorough understanding of your company, project, audience and objectives. We construct a framework for your project to take shape within in terms of strategy, production and time. We distill planning into purposeful designs that reflect your objectives and outline a visual aesthetic.  We review, tweak and propagate your final product. From there, we’ll celebrate socially like it’s 1999. We track, analyze and correct your project’s growth through ongoing campaigns and retainers.
