Seconds of Style #31: A Digital Issue

I might be a little slow off the mark on this one but I was just introduced to Issuu, a wonderful website full of uploaded magazines! I am a complete magazine hoarder, I can't get enough of them. I buy them new, I buy them 2nd hand. I swap them, I borrow them and I pile them high - so this is a little bit exciting for me. I have to say, I will still need the tactility of having a hard copy when it comes down to it but I love that I can click through loads of great publications and get ideas. It's incredibly user friendly and the images are nice and clear. They even have a 'Visual Inspiration' section to browse, check out Swedish magazine Fotografisk Tidskrift (Photographic Journal), visually inspiring indeed!

Seconds of Style #30: For Your Walls Only

So I have been on a bit of a hiatus from the blogging world due to a very demanding job with a NZ designer, but I have a bit more free time now so I'm back! I stumbled across some of these art works when I was doing some research for work and had to share them (there may be a bit of an animal theme). I love how accessible art is these days and how varied, intelligent and interesting it is. Again, these are all from Etsy, the perfect place for original, one-of-a-kind things!
