Pattern Pairs (3) Chuck out your chintz – IKEA

Anyone remember this advert from Ikea? The one where we were all encouraged to chuck out our chintz?  I was reminded of it when flipping through the latest Ikea catalogue.  There seems to be a healthy dose of gorgeous, floral, dare I say chintz! featured within its pages as well as a fab collection of prints and new ideas.

New Trends – Mexican embroidery with its bold colors, animals, and floral prints. I love it, it fits well with all the whimsical animal prints around at the moment but vamps them up a bit and throw in the handmade element, it’s a perfect bright combination.

What do you think? Time to throw in a bit of colour?

In the post this morning

A week ago my design “Bow Ties” was a runner up in the Tigerprint Male Fashion Icons & Symbols competition and the prize arrived this morning – The book Hand Job: A Catalog of Type by Michael Perry.

Below are a few snapshots as I flicked through the pages this morning. Just waiting for a bit of down time and a cup of tea then I can check out the book from cover to cover and drool over some of the most talented typographers who draw by hand.  It looks amazing. Thanks to the folk at Tigerprint!
