Studio You Me / 2: The Drifters Table - Identity Design

Behind Studio You Me there are two creative women (and friend):  Kestie Lane and Hana Hakim. Their works portfolio extend beyond interior projects (we saw Brighton Residence yesterday) to graphic, event, urban, furniture and product design.
So this time, I want to highlight the brand identity that the studio designed for The Drifter Table.
I find it so elegant and cool, isn't it? 

"The Drifter Table is a bevy of three like-minded hardworking chefs who are taking the pop up restaurant movement in Melbourne by storm.
Studio You Me wanted create a brand that was dynamic and edgy but also have a sense of establishment to mark it’s longevity and to set them well apart from the norm.

The brand is designed using an elegant stone backdrop and a cool custom crafted font, the iconic compass design gives the brand its strength and a reference to pioneering new culinary territories.

Like the three collaborators, the brand has a cheeky side reflecting the personalities of the chefs, with quirky anecdotes and phrases on the matchbooks and menus to get the dinner conversation started."

Life is too short to design anything less than extraordinary.

Cruciani, Italian macramé lace bracelets

The four-leaf clover bracelet was an idea of Luca Caprai and was designed to communicate Cruciani to a young and increasingly well informed and demanding public.  Lace may seem distant from modern day tastes but it in fact encapsulates many elements of our culture and traditions.

The Cruciani four-leaf clover bracelet phenomenon exploded in August 2011, when there were endless queues at the Cruciani boutique in Forte dei Marmi, day and night, to get the summer bracelet in one or more colours. This boom rapidly spread throughout the whole of Italy and beyond.

The Tietgenkollegiet in Copenhagen

I finally found my photos of the Tietgenkollegiet (The Tietgen Residence Hall), one of my favourite buildings in Copenhagen.
It is a dormitory for students where I would live immediately if I had the possibility. It makes me want to be a student again!

Photo Editing: Gimp's Filters

I'm using Gimp 2.8 - the free GNU Image Manipulation Program - to edit my photos. I'd never had the time to explore filters before - I usually love untouched or quite untouched images - but I did it yesterday with these origami butterfly series. The shots weren't all well focused but I was liking them the same that's why I thought of filters - to save some pics getting something different;-) I wrote the name of the filter I used under each picture.
