As a designer I am always looking for music to listen to as I work, music that inspires me and does not distract me from my current project.

Gotye, Somebody that I use to know

The Consult


Some great layout design from Leeds based studio, The Consult.

Hey Days


Hey Days is an Oslo based studio that was founded in 2008. They’re small but nimble and they take amazing photographs of their work which they show with pride in high-res on their site.

I came across the firm BOND via the wonderfully elegant design blog September Industry. BOND is a creative firm out of Helsinki, Finland. They have this refreshingly traditional approach to design that is timeless, clean and to the point. It’s sophisticated yet their’s a warmth to it that I love. Especially dig their illustration for “Childrens Hospital”.
