DIY Calendar

August 13, 2013 | No Comments

Designed by White Studio | Country: united Kingdom

“The DIY Calendar is part of White Studio self-promotion project: BITRI, a special brand of the studio that specialises in exquisite and luxurious objects all conceptualised and designed in-house.

This particular calendar is all about freedom and a lot of writing. It can be used both as a calendar and a diary, giving the user the freedom to select each day as many pages as he wish. The stickers indicate the day of the month, and can be applied anywhere on the page, allowing the user to write around it. The main objective with this project was to develop a do-it-yourself object, one that can be built differently by each user and personalised as desire.”

The paintings that hang on the walls of a house reflect the aesthetic sensibilities of its occupants. In this sense, every person wants a piece of art that speaks out to him – and no person in his right mind will buy art that holds no special appeal.

Fortunately, there are ways for anyone to get a hold of art that caters to his taste. Online, it is easy to pick out paintings and sculptures. Mixed media art is usually categorized according to orientation, size, medium, subject, and style. This gives everyone leeway in terms of choices!

Student Work – Morgan Sterns

February 7, 2013 | 1 Comment

Designed by Morgan Sterns | Country: United States

“Alchemy is defined as a form of chemistry and speculative philosophy practiced in the Middle Ages and the Renaissance and it’s concerned principally with discovering methods for transmuting baser metals into gold and finding a universal solvent and an elixir of life.

In an attempt to bring a modernized design approach to the ancient practice of alchemy, I created a fictitious brand called Alchimia for my MFA graduate package design class. The prompt was to conceptualize and develop a survival kit and instead I opted to create a high-end kit for the modern day alchemist.

Embossed black and gold lettering on fine linen paper give each piece of the kit a luxurious feel while the black on black treatments keep the package design modern, simple, and elegant.”
