Website Love ~ Free People

Wednesday, 21 November 2012 | Inspiration, Web

Free People clothing boutique feminine web design
I love the illustrations, fonts and soft colours of the Free People website, which reflect femininity and spirit.

Aimed at the twenty-something-year-old woman; smart, creative, confident and comfortable in all aspects of her being, free and adventurous, sweet to tough to tomboy to romantic.

Are you inspired by the Free People style and looking for more ideas? Check out my Free People board on Pinterest, I am always adding new design inspiration there!

Illustration ~ A boy and his dog

A boy and his dog illustration

A boy and his dog make a glorious pair:
No better friendship is found anywhere,
For they talk and they walk and they run and they play,
And they have their deep secrets for many a day;
And that boy has a comrade who thinks and who feels,
Who walks down the road with a dog at his heels.

He may go where he will and his dog will be there,
May revel in mud and his dog will not care;
Faithful he’ll stay for the slightest command
And bark with delight at the touch of his hand;
Oh, he owns a treasure which nobody steals,
Who walks down the road with a dog at his heels.

No other can lure him away from his side;
He’s proof against riches and station and pride;
Fine dress does not charm him, and flattery’s breath
Is lost on the dog, for he’s faithful to death;
He sees the great soul which the body conceals–
Oh, it’s great to be young with a dog at your heels!

–Edgar Guest

One of the design exercise words for this week was “friendship”. This illustration was inspired by the unshakable bond we often have with our childhood pet.

Whimsy Whimsical Paper Goods

Monday, 05 November 2012 | Inspiration

Whimsy Whimsical is the Etsy shop of Malaysian illustrator, Chan Yee Von, who is one of my favourite artists. This cute little shop is home to lots of different paper goods, including prints, greeting cards, invitations, stickers and notecards.

I love the handmade quality added with Yee Von’s pen and ink technique, mixed with a soft splash of colour. I also adore the creative way each photo is taken, adding to the whimsical nature of the forest animal stationery series.


No Place Like Home

Close your eyes and tap your heels together three times.
And think to yourself, there’s no place like home.
