Seeing extraordinary in ordinary is really not common thing in everyday life. The more you get your self into things that are meaningful you become your product, hand crafting is always unique simply by reproducing your emotions to your creation. Emotion guided work leads to best result that could be produced with knowledge that we posses and reproduce it in any given form.
For Tanja artistic skills are with her from very early age of her life, as a child she liked to draw allot “drawing portraits with charcoal was really natural thing to reproduce on paper for me”. She was noticed by her professor of art and she took part in different contests both small and big scale on different topics, witch also resulted with a great qualification of her drawings.
As life goes on by its pathway she find her self interested in hand crafting “I was amazed by hand made products that are made out of leather so I went in quest to get knowledge of that type hand craft” and by her self she started to learn from what ever she has seen and get hands on. Mr. Tiljak was her inspiration and guide for working with leather… Meanwhile this doesn’t stop there soon she expanded her choice of material to work with “silver and semiprecious stones soon becomes my field of interest” thanks to Milica Popović Bubanja she was led to be fully motivated and inspired with warm sincere feeling, witch ended with Tanja signing in one of the workshops held by Milica. “In workshop I meet with one of technique for processing silver that left me speechless, and soon I find my self attached with it”. “Also I must mention Audrey Kawasaki, because she left significant influence on me with her art work pictures”. Inspiration comes itself from things that we consume. We are products of everything that we adopt from our surrounding, its reproduced and re-invented with every product, or behave patent that we express.
What amazed me within her work is that not only that she make a great eye catching jewellery but she support every piece that is made by depth of background meaning. Every piece has its own story and author is the narrator so you can get clear line for its origin and urge for coming to life. Every thing is meaning-full and sens-full… See for your self in just few of many selected pictures(creations).

There are many artist in same epoch as one of these represented, but as you can see these are representatives according to artist of this piece of art…

In 2009, Little & Company reached 30 years of creating, inspiring and being inspired. We decided it was time to commemorate our longevity and success. So we turned to those who keep us fascinated in this industry.
I’m following design world more and more every month and I love it. It’s a really interesting and creative topic at all. Little & Company sought out the world’s most creative professionals and asked 30 of them to record their thoughts on design. “What single example of design inspires you most?” and “What problem should design solve next?”. They also did this last year and it became a huge global conversation through social networks. Visit the site and watch their answers!

Michal Sycz also-known-as Noeeko is a freelance digital artist based in Cracow, Poland. He did this cool interior design and made me think about redesigning my current office. Yes, really inspiring! Open to any form of expression, Michal combines photo manipulation, vectors, hand drawn elements and 3D shapes. I especially like the pinky toilet because it looks like a Super Mario level, I’m playin it sometimes when I’m bored. After this few examples I’m about to change something in my office, maybe I have to hire this guy.

Inspirational ideas for your home?
The Vitra Home Collection is not a range of furnishings in uniform style. Vitra sees furnishings much more as a collage which changes through the course of time according to the preferences and personal circumstances of the owner. Cool, isn’t it?

After Thereza’s tweet about a special project I was very curious and sure it’s connected with art – art project. About 4 hours later a Happy Journey was launched. It’s the product of the imaginative heads of illustrators Thereza Rowe, Lesley Barnes and Abi Daker.
It was born out of a Twitter interaction over a link Thereza posted featuring eco friendly customized coffins which used mostly stock images and very little imagination.
They invited the best artists illustrators from around the world to form a collective to answer a brief involving *final destination* boxes design. The project has been developing better than they ever expected as the response from the artists involved and originality of their artwok have been amazing so far. Although currently web based, ideas and possibilities for print publishing + an exhibition are being discussed and explored.
Should you wish to get involved the first thing to do is to join the group pool on Flickr, read through the brief and download the project template. I’m sure there are many creative brains, show us how your *final destination* box is gonna look like.
Good luck with your project!

It was not easy to write this questions because Erin is very-very interesting person. She’s so kind girl behind the blog about art, award-winning Design for Mankind. I was really glad to do an interview with her. Meet Erin through answers.
You are writing a lot, really a lot, how it became your passion, job? Beginning!
I’ve always been a writer, ever since I can remember. My favorite movie/book growing up was “Harriet the Spy,” as I so badly my journals to be as interesting as hers. ;)
How’s being a half of BAKERY? Tell me more about the collaboration with Jaime?
Jaime is… fantastic. She’s the perfect counterpart for me in every sense—I tend to go with the flow of things, yet she’s much more serious and business-oriented. We joke that she’s the project manager and her biggest job is to manage my crazy!
I’ve found your articles all around the web. ShelterPop, DIY Life, Design Milk, Share Some Candy and more. How you catch it all?
It’s tough juggling a lot of jobs, but I couldn’t love it more. I like researching a variety of different topics until I can deem myself an expert, whether that be party-planning, fashion or home decor.
You’ve done 16 dialogues so far, can you tell me more about the behind scenes, recording techniques and how you are finding your guests?
Dialogue is soooo much work, but a ton of fun. I actually owe its success to the “cast” of contributors—they’ve worked hard to record their segments in the right lighting and come up with thought-provoking responses to my insane questions. I found my guests pretty simply—people I loved, respected and wanted to know more about.
In the Dialogue episode 2 you said you’ve quit your daily job and started freelancing. How your day looks like?
My day is pretty flexible—sometimes I sleep in, sometimes I don’t (although I get much more finished when I don’t!). I always, always make time for my daily yoga or kickboxing class, otherwise I have crazy pent-up energy. Other than that, it’s just me and the computer, hour after hour!
And finally blogging. I’m visiting your blog every day and think I’m feeling the spirit of it. What are your content resources? Do you have a blogging plan or just write by the free will?
I actually JUST started a blogging plan, or editorial calendar, to help with organizing myself. Normally, I just surf with no real goals and jump through the rabbit hole of the Internet. Either way works well for me, as I’m pretty easily inspired.
I actually don’t have a desk, as I’m in the middle of a fixer-upper! I often blog from local coffee shops and things.
Thank you Erin.

My dear guys Sanja and Pedja have decided to make a pair of called WTFJeans. They have simply wanted to make 2 pairs of jeans, one pair for each one. They just wanted to have a jeans which they really like. A pair that is comfortable, of a nice denim color and with some nicely fitted pockets which are big enough to put their iPhones, but at the same time not too big as at those baggy hip-hoppers jeans. And after less than a 3 months we got their product available for purchase via online shop.
To be honest, I’ve never spent more than 15€ (that’s about 20 bucks) for a piece of clothes, but I’ll think again about WTFJeans (early bird price 79€) because those pants worth more for sure. Micro-fiber interior protects your iPhone or iPod touch, as well as cleaning it when you take it out. There is a hidden Memory stick pocket, so put in your USB stick or something. Extra protection for boys? O’yes, extra padding on both sides keeps your family jewels cozy.
The pockets of WTFJeans are positioned in such a way to make your ass stand out in a crowd, behing the Your ass? Sexyass™. Furthermore, each and every part of the WTFjeans was specially sewed with the color of the Twitter timeline, blue. So, go and follow them on Twitter. I’m sure Sanja and Pedja will surprise us soon, with another WOW thing, maybe the stats or a new product. Good luck guys and do not give those promo codes to the mainstream.

This is not just a usually kitchen utensils, it’s a Scanwood, Denmark’s largest manufacturer of wooden kitchen utensils. They wished to communicate the fact that their products are made through an process and are of course also made from all .

By adding the package design a few very simple effects, the Scanwood brand and payoff: – comes to life, draws attention to the products and tells the story about sustainability and nature in a modern and appealing fashion.
This Nonviolence knife is surely good for Nutella spreads, jummy. Chinese sticks are not bad, but how fork looks like?
This branded story is now visible and understandable across all different markets and languages giving the consumer an added experience and a sense of buying a product that grows straight out of the ground.
Good work guys, I want utensils like this. Where I can buy it?

Sky Nash is an artist from Birmingham currently based in London, studying a BA (Hons) Book arts and design. She started the degree in September and she’s constantly learning new things.
I choose it so that I could carry on being an illustrator and learn something practical at the same time.
Enjoy the rest of this article and see what 20 years old female artist can do.
After making some improvements on her original design, she printed on book cloth and end paper. Look at those hardback characters, awesome.
This was an experiment with book structure, trying to take away some of the normality in books.
Sky wanted to experiment more with the paper here, white paper feels a bit lifeless sometimes, she spent a lot of time covering the paper in oil and tea staining it, which made all of the pages even the cover semi transparent.
I hope she will her new works with you, a Die without Art visitor. Subscribe here.
