This is the longest mockup you have ever scrolled through. Or is it? I can be full of surprises. After working for about a year now with Twila True and since the nail bar has already opened, it was the perfect chance to tell you all about the project!
It was such a huge honour to be the designer and art director of Polished Perfect in Costa Mesa California. Those who live nearby, have probably already heard loads about it. The style we went for the whole brand was clean, chic, minimal and luxurious. This has been by far the biggest project i’ve taken on. We designed from the brand itself, to lookbooks, loads and i say loads of products such as hand creams, nail polishes, scrubs, soaps, cups, napkins, mugs and oh so many more . A lot of parts that we worked on, have not make it to the mockup as it would be endless. You can find a few more shots that didn’t make it to the post on my portfolio though.
If you keep an eye on their website, social media or if you step by, you’ll slowly see the beautiful products unraveling.

Now that is one great example of a dramatic brand identity. The first thing that Yvonne told me when we started designing, is that she wanted drama. Loads of drama!

Now that is one great example of a dramatic brand identity. The first thing that Yvonne told me when we started designing, is that she wanted drama. Loads of drama! Spectacle is a new kind of arts, theatre, opera online magazine, and after meeting Yvonne in person in Berlin (she’s the wonder woman behind The Hive Conference) our ideas and style clicked instantly.
Our original concept included a touch of blood red. Think red velvet, theatre curtains, old kind luxury. Later on in the process we both realised that red was not working quite well and we wanted to go for even more drama. Black, white, copper and a marbleised pattern, that i got to create with my nail polishes. There was a peak in the process on my snapchat around that time. I struggled quite a bit  with it, ruined my collection of Korres nail polishes, but it was worth it all the way. There’s a nice grungy texture in the pattern, you can see the paper, making it look and feel old.

New week, and i’ve been so giddy to share with you this collaboration! I literally jumped off my seat when i received Eva’s email from All comes from nothing. Designing textile for clothing has been a dream, an obsession and so so much more the past few months. The whole process from gathering inspiration, to experimenting on paper, to seeing this, the final lookbook images. And then the best.. wearing the actual garment.
There’s nothing i don’t love about this collection. So light, airy, bright, minimal, graphic with a pop of colour. Orange has been one of the most difficult colours for me to work on. But with this collaboration, it was actually my first choice. Did you know that orange is the colour of creativity, encouragement, success and happiness? Feels like almost all my favourite words / goals all in one colour.

This super powerful – girl power, minimal belongs to the lovely lady behind Spunkyrella, Martina. Working with Martina, was a whole other experience by itself. She’s the the coolest gal i’ve ever met. Like for real. That’s why designing her brand, happened in no time.

Starting the week with the best way and sharing with you one of my latest works. I’ve been trying to find the words to describe how awesome it was working with the girls from loft021 and i’m failing big time. You know, it’s one of those times that up having more of a friend relationship rather strictly than client / designer.
The ladies of loft021 had a beautiful vision and knew what they wanted right from the start. All i needed to hear was clean, industrial and a mix of Switzerland with African vibes. I was hooked to the project right away!

We brought some texture with the primary logo, a clean layout in the secondary logo and fonts, and created a pattern that has an african vibe, and spells out loft abstractly (one of my favourite part!)
On a side note, i have to apologise if the quality of this post looks kinda crappy. As i mentioned in my last post, i switched to a high res mac and i’m having some difficulties with the jpeg / png i produce. This post for example looks just terrible to me. I’m trying to figure out what i’m doing wrong, and almost decided to quite blogging until my new layout on WordPress is ready.
Would appreciate it SO much if you could give me some feedback on you’re viewing the images. In the meantime, i uploaded the loft021 rebrand on my portfolio in a super high res quality.

The past week, i know, i’ve been the worst blogger ever. I have finding it harder and harder to stick with my schedule and stay creative, posting new things here, updating my portfolio, but with family visiting, the heat and the sea calling for me, i’ve created a bad bad habit. That thankfully feels so bad and guilty that will be easy to break. 
OK, after the long talk about how crappy i feel, after a while i’m sharing a brand identity i designed for a very lovely and sweet person and a fellow creative, Eva. 
This one, was one of the unique ones that i’ve worked on this year. There are quite a few to follow later on, but this one, has this airy, organic, sea inspired and handmade feel. With summer closing in (back in May) it was a fresh breath of air to work on this project. 

You guys, can you believe this?! I certainly can’t! The Cocorrina X Pimkie Capsule Collection SS15  launched yesterday and i can’t stop smiling ever since!

You guys, can you believe this?! I certainly can’t! The Cocorrina X Pimkie Capsule Collection SS15  launched yesterday and i can’t stop smiling ever since!

It’s a totally different thing seeing your designs on paper and a totally different thing seeing them on clothes, on model and in a photoshoot. I literally got the chills when i first saw the video. This collaboration, showed me just how much i love designing clothes and as you already know, i am working on my own fashion brand at the moment.

The collection contains 20 pieces, from swimwear, to kimonos, totes and clothes! And they are FRESH! Lol that’s the best word to describe them. We went with lots of color, and that blue shade is by far my favourite. I bet you can see the inspiration and the Mediterranean effect on the collection.

What’s your favourite piece? I’m having a tough time choosing, but i have a soft spot for the orange pattern! And those palm leaves 😀
